Lovely view, good food

Cool, casual, with a great view over the water. Fresh delicious seafood shines here. Have whatever they're serving that's fresh. For us, it was the red snapper. Delicious. They also make a fine, hearty, spicy pasta with mixed seafood, with twice as much seafood as pasta.

Great casual restaurant. Easy walk from Tulemar Villas. The wait staff were prompt and helpful. I ordered a grilled chicken sandwich. When my husband's b.b.q. chicken salad arrived I mentioned how delicious it looked. The waiter brought b.b.q. sauce for my sandwich which made it even more delicious.

This is an excellent restaurant for lunch or happy hour - the sunsets are perfect and the view is priceless. Food was very good and the drinks were well made - not too weak

Amazing view at this restaurant....but you come for the food! It is a small restaurant with about 15 tables or so....reservations would be recommended if you can get them. The food is excellent and the service is great. One of our favorites in Manuel Antonio!

Cafe Agua Azul was one of our favourite restaurants on our 10 day vacation. We had 2 Big Burgers, a Jr Burger, chicken wrap, and chicken fingers. Alot of food, one of the big burgers was slighty undercooked so some was left behind, other than that the food and service were excellent. We tried to go back a second time... More

Super casual great view. Perfect for a beer or cocktail and snack. Fish was very moist and tender. Fish stew appeared to be specialty.

My husband and I stopped here our first afternoon in Manuel Antonio for a drink and a snack. It was across the street from our hotel, so it was very convenient. The place wasn't very crowded as it was only about 3:00. We ordered a couple of national beers (served icy cold) which were only $2 American, and the Tuna... More

This was the first place we stopped on our vacation and we loved it!! Firstly, don't go by the indicated location on Trip Advisor map icon. It shows it on the street behind the restaurant which is wrong. It is located on the main road going into Manual Antonio. The view is beautiful. The staff was superb and very helpful.... More
