Hot Oil Fondue in Costa Rica
Are you headed to Costa Rica soon?
If your travel plans include Tamarindo in Guanacaste, you may want to stop by a restaurant called Vulcano and eat their delicious fondue bourguignonne.
I went there in February 2015 and enjoyed a fabulous dinner with the owners and a couple of friends.
The Vulcano Restaurant in Tamarindo, Costa Rica
The Vulcano restaurant is located near the round-about in Tamarindo (there's only one, and it's on the main road). You can reach them by phone at +506 2653-0056 or +506 8788-2589 or by email.
Vulcano offers live entertainment (mostly pop/folk/rock music) on most evenings. At the time this review was written, their opening hours were from 11:00 am to 11:00 pm.
The only fondue item on their menu is ‘Fondue bourguignonne' which is the traditional hot oil fondue served with cubes of tender beef. It is absolutely delicious!
Their menu also includes a wide selection of tapas, pasta, seafood, meat and lots of tasty thin-crust pizzas baked right in the main dining area. Tasty!
The restaurant accepts Visa, American Express, MasterCard, and Cash (US dollars and Costa Rican colones). Reservations can be made but are not always necessary.
At the time this review was written, it cost USD 24 per person for fondue bourguignonne, and it came with a good amount of tender beef cubes, three delicious dips, and French fries as well. I recommend you include a bottle of red wine (or two) with your meal as well (obviously, that would cost extra).
