Villa in the Wild prides itself on its exceptional farm-to-table menus, based around locally sourced ingredients from the adjacent Mara Bandas Farm, a small organic agriculture operation.

The combination of the freshest fruit and vegetables with holistically raised, grass fed meat result in delicious and healthy home style cuisine.
