Indian Nights Heats up Puerto Viejo’s Restaurant Scene

Just in time for the cooler evenings of November, a hot new restaurant has very recently opened its doors in Puerto Viejo de Limon.  In a cozy location ideal for romantic dinners and solo diners alike, Indian Nights is just the place to complement the global cuisine scene that Puerto Viejo is recognized and adored for. All the Indian favorites you may crave are on the menu: curries, samosas, tandoori, delicious naan, plus several vegetarian options, all whipped up to order with gusto at this new gem in town. When chef Ian traded his native United Kingdom for Costa Rica, Puerto Viejo was a natural choice. He clearly relishes the bevy of fresh local ingredients at his fingertips that add color and flavor to traditional Indian dishes. Find Indian Nights by following the signs leading to a colorful tapestry that marks the otherwise incognito entrance. By day, Indian Nights beams as Cafe Rico, a quaint and cozy place to sip lattes and surf the web with wi-fi. The doors open for dinner at 6, the vibe is laid-back casual by candlelight, and reservations are welcome.
