Welcome to Pandora

A romantic experience



Pandora restaurant is a renovated old house. With a mix of history and tastefully modern detail, the ambiance is perfect for special occasions. Previously operated as The Marilyn Monroe Bar, the Pandora project emerged from an effort to restore a sense of peacefulness and romance amidst the bustle of Alajuela. An intimate restaurant with artful details and personalized service, Pandora is one of the best restaurants in Alajuela to enjoy a leisurely dinner or hang out with friends and family. Dine inside the charming bar or outside on the pool-side garden terrace or reserve the private dining cabana. We have ample secure parking, vegan and gluten-free selections as well as passionately crafted cocktails and a modest, curated wine list.
