While staying at Si Como No, we were a stone's throw from this restaurant. We ate there 3 times in 2 days (2 dinners and 1 breakfast). Every single thing we had there was fabulous. Fish dinners with local ingredients, creative breakfasts, milkshakes, and of course amazing coffee (they started as coffee roasters). The live music nightly just added to... More

Terrible, the waitress brought us our drinks like 15 minutes after we ordered. 10 minutes later I inquired about the food, to which she replied "The food?" She frantically ran to the kitchen and then came back and told us she forgot to put the food order in. What a joke. You have one job.... We paid our tab and... More

The staff is very friendly and very informative. The fish tacos are excellent and so is the kids' menu. There's many awesome desserts to choose from. We would definitely come back.

We found this place through tripadvisor and it definitely lived up to all of the reviews. While there we enjoyed appetizers, dinner and drinks as well as a local singer who moved here from Boston 15 years ago singing a Jack Johnson and Michale Jackson cover songs! This place is definitely one of our favorites while here! The food, ambiance... More

We had dinner here one evening while staying in MA and while I must say the food was very good, the ice cream was spectacular! For dessert I had a chocolate chip espresso frappe. I think it was only ice cream and espresso. As a non coffee drinker it was delicious. My wife who is a coffee drinker had an... More

The atmosphere was very relaxed for dinner and drinks. The prices were reasonable for Manuel Antonio (it is cheaper in Quepos), and the owner who was hostessing really loved talking to the guests. It's great to see people really loving what they do. We went back the next day for breakfast -- try the banana pancakes with macadamia nuts. Amazing.... More

The other reviews don't lie - this place is great! What initially drew us to this place was the music we could hear from the street and just the overall cuteness of the place from the outside. And after 1 day in Manuel Antonio we had already heard from many locals that this was a place we needed to try.... More

The best meals we had in Costa Rica - tasty, original, superfriendly stuff, good beers (IPA), interesting cocktails, nice atmosphere, overall a fantastic experience. We went there once and returned there each meal until the end of our stay in Manuel Antonio!
