Our Food Philosophy 2018-02-17T16:42:47+00:00
WE INFUSE ‘PURA VIDA’ IN EVERY BITE

At Arenas del Mar, we believe that great food starts with great ingredients. That’s why we source locally and organically, and fish responsibly in our own oceans. You can always look forward to grass-fed beef, hormone-free chicken, and greens from local farmers.  Behind the scenes, our talented chefs combine these glorious ingredients with a passion for flavor that shines through in each and every dish.
