Great view, great food.

Nice and quiet. Stopped in at 11am on Monday for some munchies, Bloody Mary's and a great view. We ordered several dishes from the tapas menu. All were great. Good spot to watch the birds as well.

Worst food I've had since I've been in Costa Rica. Chicken burrito consisted of just chicken and mozzarella cheese. Service was even worse. Weak drinks.

I ordered the tuna filet rare, and it was fantastic. My family all really enjoyed their food as well. The waitress brought out this fantastic dip on the house, but I have no idea what it was. It was like some beans, covered with salsa, served with tortilla chips. It was very unexpected, and very delicious! The waitress we had... More

We stumbled across this our first night and came back the next two nights! Felicia was our server each time and is a doll. She was happy to see us, making us feel welcome and very attentive to our service. The food was excellent and very well priced. Our last night we tried to eat at another restaurant but after...

Music was really good at this cozy open air restaurant with a great view and superb food. Didn't have a bad meal in Costa Rica, but this was probably one of the top 2 meals.

Decent food, expensive for what you get in my opinion. Great view of the coastline though, if you are going for the view you will not be disappointed.

We dined early so were the only family in restaurant while locals at the bar. A cat was at our table bothering us and jumping around the table and food. Service was not great but drinks were strong. Not a family place.

After driving up and down the main strip in Manuel Antonio looking for a lunch spot, we finally picked place completely at random. We were all very happy with our food, the views, the drinks, and the service... this was just an all around great restaurant. My 11 year old son was on a Hamburguesa binge on our entire trip...

We wanted to watch the beautiful sunset over the ocean as the restaurant has very good location and there was also live music (a blues band). To continue enjoying the music after our sunset drinks, we decided to have our dinner there. The food was mediocre at best. If you want to enjoy a good dinner, this is not the... More
