We had a great dinner at the restaurant tonight. Our waiter Oscar was so nice and guided us to the perfect meal. The chicken was excellent, and fish was yummy. Our daughter had the veggie plate and it to was good. We just arrived in town and noticed it was rated number one in Manuel Antonio.

OK food. Distracting location feet off of the busiest road in town. Lackluster service. Moderately high prices for Costa Rica.
