Great Sunday night gathering place for sunset and drinks!

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... read more

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

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

Though we didn't eat here I can absolutely recommend it as a perfect spot for watching the sun set with a couple of gin and tonics.

My husband and I ate here a couple years ago and we are about to come back and can't wait to eat another one of their burritos!! I also love the fact you can order several small plates and share! Food and drinks were so fresh and amazing I wish I could click my heels and I could appear there... More

Went here our first night staying at Tulemar which was walking distance. They accommodated a group of 10 right away. Our waitress did a great job keeping our bills separate and timely. Had a live music was nice and festive. Shrimp quesadillas are excellent!

Salsipuedes has long been my favorite place to have dinner in Manuel Antonio, a place that I have been coming back to every year since 2012. The location is breathtaking, with unbeatable sunset views, and fun, friendly staff. On our first visit, our hostess even helped us select a table that would give the optimal sunset view. The seafood is... More
