Delicious and great views

Our family of 4 really enjoyed this place to eat. Each one of us had a great meal..seared ahi, mahi mahi with some orange sauce and a giant hamburger..all great. The view is beautiful and the service was good, it was early and there were not many tables at the time. If I could I would give it a 4.5

This a great little spot overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is owned by a family from South Carolina and has some great burgers as well as some wonderful seafood. Something for everyone in this relaxed place that captures all that Manuel Antonio has to offer.

We spent more time here than anywhere else. We came for lunch one day and returned 2 more times for dinner. The staff is so friendly and professional and the tuna is so good.

The view here is amazing! One story above street level with a view of the Pacific. The food was delicious. The service was terrible. It seemed like they were understaffed-everything took a long time and things were forgotten. I would consider going back but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Excellent food, great views, good service, very comfortable atmosphere--we came for lunch and even though it was very hot out, it was very comfortable in the restaurant. The view was incredible. the food was outstanding. The owner was there and was very friendly. We highly recommend this place.

This restaurant is very social. They care about their customers much more than they do about food. Their food is also very good! You get a great view of the beach from the second floor! (Their are real estates on the first floor) I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone in the local area of Quepos, Costa Rica or... More

Small, quaint, good food and within walking distance from my hotel - La Mariposa. It was crowded for dinner, but the food was good, the drinks cold and the staff friendly.

I thought the food here was very good and an alternative to the hotel. I'm not sure it was cheaper than the Paradoor, but it was good and very good service.

Had a most delightful meal last night for my husband's 80th birthday. Food was excellent - the cinnamon and coconut encrusted mahi mahi was the best I have ever tasted! The staff were extremely welcoming and helped us celebrate my husband's birthday with a chocolate brownie and candle! Can only give my highest recommendation.
