The service was good. Our entries were just okay, would have been better had they been served hot, I don't enjoy eating fish or seafood that is luke warm at best.

Ronny's is one of the best places in CR to view the sun setting over the Pacific ocean. Just grab yourself a bowl of ceviche and a cold drink and enjoy yourself!!! Pura Vida!

Our taxi driver recommended Ronnie's Place for dinner. We were skeptical. After getting there and seeing the crowd, we felt better about the recommendation. After eating, we were believers that this may be the best restaurant for local food in Quepos.

Found by accident, came back twice, due to the friendly service, best margueritas, freshest, originally cooked fish dishes. The waiters did a little dance with a special twist. Sunsets are amazing. A favorite of the tour buses so get there early to snag a table with a view before the buses arrive.

Going to Ronny's Place is a must if you are staying in this area of Costa Rica. Ronny and his staff are great people and the food is great and reasonably priced. The whole fried fish is a must and order the bananas flambé for a surprise. Also very nice at sunset, great view!

Touted as best sangria in Costa Rica, it is pretty darn good. Goes down way too easy given that it contains rum, vodka and triple sec as well as the red wine and tropical fruit (we asked). As for the sunset, well, in February, for the better photos of the sun sinking into the sea, walk down the path beyond... More

Some claim this is the best sunset in Manuel Antonio. I think they might be right, this hidden spot was great! It is literally off of a dirt road and the food was very authentic. A local told us to check it out and we were very pleased. The sangria and food were excellent. Be sure to order the banana... More

Our G adventure tour guide took us here on our last night in Quepos. Good food, good service, prices are typical of what you get in CR so a bit on the pricey side. Overall a solid resto. We ordered the red sauce pasta and the chicken skewer. Both were good. The key line pie dessert was yummy, more like... More
