Playa Bejuco is a stretch of beach about halfway between Jaco Beach and Manuel Antonio National Park along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. We recently spent two weeks in a rental home close to the beach, and on our last night there decided to go to dinner at the nearby Hotel Playa Bejuco. Eating out anywhere is always a bit of a gamble because we need to make sure the food preparation is safe for my gluten free son. We asked to see the menu before committing to the restaurant, and it was extensive enough that we were certain to find something for our son. We asked a few questions of the waitress when we arrived and were happy to find that she was able to answer all our questions to our satisfaction. She confirmed that the French fries were fried in a separate fryer from anything breaded, and knew the ingredients of the dishes we asked about. The menu was pretty extensive, and the prices were reasonable. We ordered two appetizers and three main courses and the bill came to approx. $40 US. Pretty reasonable, especially for the quality of the food. The meals were delicious.Recommended By: @CeliacBaby / coulditbeceliac.blogspot.com On: 2013-06-09
