El Oasis will be missed in Cuenca, but Costa Rica’s Gain! It was such a privilege to be a part of the closing of the El Oasis dining ceremony here in Cuenca, EC this past weekend. El Oasis will be greatly missed now that they are relocating to Costa Rica. They may be leaving but their impression with always remain. The gifted and talented partners, Mico and Annie, have created an extraordinary and unique plant based dining concept that goes way beyond anyone’s imagination. The people of Costa Rica are so fortunate to experience a new found dining experience like no other. Here’s to Mico and Annie! You may have moved on to your next adventure but you will never be forgotten. Salud!

And so it goes...... On Saturday, September 3rd, I was able to attend the final ceremony of el Oasis before they pack up and go to Costa Rica. With some close friends, we were able to experience a 12 course, 4 drink mind blowing gastronomical presentation. WOW! There is nothing that I know of that can compare to what we were able to partake in. The flavors, the textures, the pairings and the intensity were absolutely unique. Chef Mico and Annie pulled out all the stops for us. The room would go suddenly quiet as the next course was presented. It was an extreme honor to be part of their last service. They will be sorely missed.

Birthday Celebration I had the pleasure of revisiting my new favorite restaurant. I couldn't imagine this unbelievable celebration of bringing all senses together, while enjoy each bite, like you've never experienced before. This experience is a full evening of the most healthy delicious five star creations you could imagine. Mouth melting experience with Annie's unimaginable desserts. Mico, Annie and Steve will make sure your experience is Pure Delight

Complete Immersive Experience My wife and I attended the final public gastronomic ceremony that the owners of this incredible restaurant held in Cuenca last night. They are moving their entire operation to Costa Rica early next year. Everything that the eleven of us who attended last night experienced was unique and special. The food and drink — much of which is simply celestial — was just one aspect of the evening. For over four hours we all — patrons and proprietors alike — shared in an otherworldly communal moment that was — frankly — unreproducible. We are so grateful to have been able to participate in this experience and wish Mico and Annie and Steve and Malia the best of luck in their exciting new adventure in Guanacaste.

纯素餐厅，比米其林更优秀 实在太有才了。中国来的朋友一定要到El Oasis 享受（个人认为是）世界上最棒的全素菜谱。以前在纽约、芝加哥、洛杉矶各种米其林饭店吃过，但El Oasis 的风格真的比以上的都要独特。整个经验5个小时，12位陌生人共用一张大桌，大家从世界各地来尝试神奇的全素菜谱。8道菜，一个比一个更独特，更可口。厨师讲解每道菜的背景时，可以感到他们对纯素风格的热情。想想整个菜谱由全素材料做成真的太难了。别说能做到这样的水平真的是太有才了。听他们说马上要搬家去Costa Rica，建议开店之后所有旅游的中国朋友去尝试！

Esperienza divina Assaporare le loro creazioni è stato un dono per l'anima.Ho persino provato la crema viso di Annie, Skin Magic, ricca e sensuale, semplicemente fantastica.

Are you looking for a new culinary experience? Do yourself a favor and make a reservation the next time you visit Cuenca! It is quite evident that the team at El Oasis spend countless hours perfecting their skills and trade; bringing a whole new perspective to what a dining experience can be. You may just leave feeling like you went to an art gallery disguised as a restaurant. How is it possible to make food look so beautiful? All the while being carried through a story of flavors and textures that have been consciously prepared. What an adventure for the soul! Makes you realize, food should always be celebrated as a ceremony. And while you’re there, ask them about their amazing line of skin care products that are also created in the El Oasis kitchen. That’s right, you heard me, skin care products safe enough to eat.

Skin Magic It warms my heart to leave a review for this amazing product. Skin Magic is made in El Oasis kitchen and I can tell you that I feel so much loving energy when applying this magical cream. The product is vegan and is full of delicious essential oils that hydrate and smooth out my skin. I use this product daily and I feel blessed to have come across this wonderful potion. Thank you El Oasis for such a conscious product!
