Culinary Choices at Crocodile Bay Resort

Chef Minor will be serving the Fish Filet of the Day perfectly grilled with your choice of his own sauces. The Teriyaki sauce or the Butter and Garlic may be better suited to the denser Mahi-Mahi (Dorado), or try my favorite, the spicy Mango Hot Sauce, a perfect counterpoint to the light, delicate African Pompano filet.

Crocodile Bay typically offers two or three choices in fresh caught fish and the dinner entrée list includes eleven menu choices in chicken, beef, pork and vegetarian areas. There are four salad choices, three soup choices and two appetizers before you get to the entrée. We maintain such a large menu to offer our guests variety and quality.

When we have a large number of guests we will serve buffet style which lends itself to the informal dining atmosphere where guests mingle and converse about the day from table to table and sometimes make plans for the next. Quite often, families will decide to do a next-day Ecotour together, for example, or ladies may share their experience about a Spa treatment they enjoyed that day. Tables are easily conjoined when parties find the conversation continuing. After dinner, drinks in the Lounge, or Game Room or Mini-Casino give an opportunity to chat with others while playing a game of pool or foosball, or relaxing on comfortable sofas.

They say Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and ours offers so many choices you could be at Crocodile Bay for two weeks and not try everything. You will find a variety of egg omelets, pancakes, oatmeal and much more, all with a Costa Rican accent. For example, I like a bowl of oatmeal that I can stand my spoon up in, and in Costa Rica, custom is to serve it with milk. It is excellent, but not the way I want it, and the wait staff was quite willing to ask the chef to learn to do it my way. You will find in many cases the waitresses and chefs will be gracefully accommodating of your preference, if it is at all possible. We can accomodate special menus for vegetarians and others with advance notice.

Lunch may make you ask, where is everybody? Most guests are out fishing or on a full-day ecotour, but those taking it easy, with scheduled Spa Packages or only a half-day ecotour will find a completely different menu for lunch, in a casual, relaxed atmosphere. There is no less choice, as salads, soups, appetizers, sandwiches and entrees are available.

The fresh fish on the menu is always excellent, but for those wanting something different, there is no lack of choice. There are so many choices, you may decide to extend your stay to try them all!
