Amazing service and food

I went there with my wife and kids along with my mother and the food was spectacular. It happened to be a real rainy night and it pored like I have never seen it rain before. The waiter/bartender made fantastic drinks and was a huge help when it came to making us feel real comfortable and at home... read more

Food is delicious with big serving and great view of the beach and park. Our waiter charged us extra 2000 colones so when I pointed that to him he said he will get it corrected and instead of subtracting he added another 2000 colones. Long story short double check you bill

My husband and I ate lunch here twice. Both times the service and food excellent. The view is simply stunning. The open air restaurant chill and breezy. Very relaxing to stare at the jungle and ocean beyond. The staff very friendly. The food is delish. First trip I ate chicken and rice which was decent. My husband had a tuna... More

No reservation long wait but due to disorganization slow service, do not take no American Express, their exchange rate for US dollars worst than any other places I visited in Costa Rica. Small with only few tables and no air conditioning (same as other restaurants in area) but very good food. I tried the BBQ beef ribs, the macadamia nut... More

Huge portions. Good for families with younger children. Unhealthy food though, very greasy, you find much better options elsewhere. Their portions are american friendly.

What to order: Fish soup (my daughter stole most of it from me) Guaro sours (local drink but this version was like pink lemonade with a kick) Calamari starter (very unusual and delicious with capers and olives)

Outstanding view of the water, open and airy bar and good menu for food and drinks items, however, dissappointed there is not happy hour. We stayed for one drink and left for other places on the same street that offered happy hour.

This place has really nice food, the people are VERY kind, the view is beautiful. Yes it is a bit pricey, but please consider that you are in Manuel-Antonio, the MOST EXPENSIVE city in Central America. It's like being in NYC--you wouldn't go there and expect to pay Kentucky prices, would you? Everything is expensive here. Put Cafe Agua Azul... More
