Mary’s Restaurant story starts almost over 80 years ago when Mary’s grandfather was one of the first to come to live in Mal Pais, despite not having roads or electricity amongst other amenities. Following her grandfather, Mary’s father began farming rice, beans and corn on the land they settled on in Mal Pais. Just over 20 years ago Mary felt a strong urge & desire to connect this rich, family, local history with the modern day traveler and tourist, thus opening Mary’s Restaurant & Farm.
Similar to the modern day “Farm-to-Table” or “Farm-To-Fork” concept, Mary’s restaurant provides diners with only the freshest foods available in the area and in fact still farms on the same land her ancestors did.
Since opening its doors in 1996 Mary’s Restaurant has been family owned & operated, making it a prime investment opportunity for those looking to invest in Santa Teresa or Mal Pais area. This turnkey restaurant boasts not only an impeccable reputation in town and online, they also gross approximately $100,000 USD annually.
The selling price is comprised of 575 m2 of land, which includes the physical restaurant & its’ equipment and supplies, multiple freezers, walk-in fridge, ice machine, a fully equipped “line” kitchen and seats up to 100 people. In addition to that, the listing includes a 2 bedroom/1 bathroom upstairs apartment and a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom “chef’s quarters” apartment, that can be used as additional income or to house restaurant staff. Across the stream, directly behind Mary’s Restaurant, is the working farm that has an option to continue the land lease upon purchasing.
Mary’s Restaurant is the perfect real estate opportunity for those looking to move to Costa Rica and have an already established income producing property. Located just outside of the main center of town in Mal Pais, this street front restaurant is THE original place in Santa Teresa.
