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.

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.

Overall, the food and service is excellent. Really enjoyed my ceviche. Prices are fair and would go back in a heartbeat!

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

Great gathering place on a Sunday evening with kinda loud dj music, seeing friends and watching fabulous sunsets....couldn't ask for a better spot! The service can be very fast and always with a smile, as well as the food choices! The wooden menus are in need of an update for sure, but we were generally very pleased with the quality... More

We absolutely loved this place two years ago, but everything seems to be sliding down hill, even the menus looked like they were ready to fall apart. The food now is just ok, but I wouldn't waste one of my vacation dinners here. Come here instead for drinks at sunset.

Warm welcome from the staff and a beautiful sunset shared with friends. The food was about average. The sushi was one of the best items we ordered - surprisingly.

The view is awesome like so many places in MA. If it is dark with no view then the food is just fair. We had tapas fajitas were horrible wings just ok. A good place for just a drink maybe

The drinks and tappas are the better choice at this place. The steak and the shrimp platters were ok. Nothing special. The view however was gorgeous and the ambiance was relaxed and enjoyable. I would not go back, because there are many restaurants in Manuel Antonio serving better food with the same view. On the plus side, their prices are... More
