View is the bomb! Staff is friendly and lively. Fish tacos where amazing for lunch. Red snapper for dinner was perfect. And the tuna tar tar on tostadas are a must. Coldest beer I had in Costa Rica too! Big Fan!

I don't see many comments about this so maybe we just hit it on on off night or the wind was blowing the wrong way but even though this is a typical outdoor restaurant, it was so greasy and smoky. We were seated in the far corner of the restaurant, as far as you can get from the grill and... More

Quality, fresh, tasty food found here!!! And very friendly staff! The view is quite spectacular as well. The food was so great for lunch here that we decided to come back one night for dinner and it was just as great!

Agua Azul was just up the road from our rental house so we stopped here for lunch on our first day in town. The 6 of us all ordered something different and each item was great. I would highly recommend the tuna wrap. Nice big chunks of fresh tuna. The service was very friendly and the view the bay was... More

We had lunch here one day, and while we found the food enjoyable, it was nether special nor memorable. Service was good, and the price was right. Would certainly be happy to eat here again, and to try dinner, but would probably not go out of my way to do so.

We were in Costa Rica for a little over a week and ate out for lunch and dinner throughout the trip. Eight of us went to dinner at the Cafe Agua Azul and we all thought this restaurant had the best food of the trip. I had the Coconut Crusted Fish and a few others had the Panko Crusted Tuna.... More

Nice family restaurant with ample menu variety. Get there early to get a good table with a view. It can get busy late nights.

This is without a doubt one of the best views in Manuel Antonios, and while the food may be a bit of a splurge by Costa Rican standards, it was delicious and well worth the extra money spent. Additionally their drinks are made-to-order and hit the spot after a busy adventure day, especially with their attentive waiters, whose service ensures... More

We sat at the bar and thought the food & drinks were great. The food portions were large and the drinks were strong.
