Marismo in Jose Ignacio,
known for its slow-braised lamb, is strictly alfresco, with candlelit tables set around a bonfire on the sand. One of the area’s trendiest eateries, Marismo also offers a quirky tiki bar overlooking an open-air dining room with a sand floor that’s often standing-room only in January high-season.
No tablecloths or crystal stemware, but a well-worn wood bar is lined by knotty pine chairs. By night the upscale vibe intensifies with live DJs or musicians spinning sexy music while bonfires roar and subtle flirtation ensue. Locals order-up carafes of Rose and white sparkling wine.
