We were blown away by the food & service there. The open kitchen view concept made for part of the experience, as well as the view. The fish was super fresh and we simply loved the staff. You could not find nicer, more hard working folks. Prices were very reasonable. It is a Manuel Antonio MUST!

We had lunch here on the last day they were opened before closing for their vacation (many restaurants in the area rotate vacation closings during September/October). Appetizers were large enough for lunch...3 mini tuna tostadas were nicely seasoned & tostadas were crispy.An order of chicken fingers came with french fries....not overly battered chicken & good fries. The view overlooking the... More

We had a great dinner here with my niece, who now lives in Costa Rica. The service was excellent, as was the food. Unfortunately we got there after sunset, as it appeared the view would be great from the second floor setting.

The first thing you notice is the incredible panoramic view of the beach. The service, food, and drinks were also great! We visited twice in during our week in Manuel Antonio, and had the same experience both times. The staff was very friendly, engaging, and very attentive. The food and drinks were among the best we had in Manuel Antonio,... More

This place had both the best food we tasted in Manuel Antonio and the best service. I found that a lot of places we ate ate were nice or expensive, but a lot of times the service did not match. In this case, it stood out to me enough to where I really want to emphasize it. Maybe it was... More

The best view of any restaurant we ate at. Small little cafe with great staff and a good burger (Son of the big a$$!) The french fries are fresh cut and are some of the best I've ever had. Didn't even put any ketchup or salt on them! Prices are decent too.

My wife and I were staying in the area at the Falls Hotel. One day while out on an evening stroll she and I noticed flames shooting upward in a building perched atop a real estate office against the back drop of a beautiful Costa Rican night sky. Curious we ventured upward to the 2nd floor where we were warmly... More

We went twice. The first time, for dinner, our food and mixed drinks were absolutely incredible. The second time, for lunch, our meals and drinks were less impressive. Still, go! The meal we loved was the tuna steak over mashed yucca and (pickled?) onions and peppers. It was so delicately and perfectly flavored. The ceasar salad was also one of... More
