This open air restaurant on the main road to Manuel Antonio has a lovely view. They have a two-for-one drink special from 4 to 6 p.m. and it is a good place to watch the sunset. The food was good but not outstanding. Service was good and the prices about what you would expect for the area. A nice option... More

Without a clue we got into the national park and picked this cozy restaurant. Food was fabulous, my boyfriend was overwhelmed by the tuna they had caught on the day itself and prices were comparably low. The owner helped us a lot and made it a perfect dinner for us. We also got some starters on the house.

This restaurant was just down the road from Hotel La Mariposa. We were looking for a quick lunch before we headed back to the airport. Our waitress was very nice. She brought out some refried beans and chips (yummy). We ordered chicken fajitas, white bean stew and a vegetarian dish, plus some smoothies and ice tea. Everything was really good.

Rainy night and just down the road from the Tulemar gate. Decided to give it a try and glad we did. Nothing fancy but good atmosphere. Guitar player was good. We both ordered fish. Very tasty. I had teriyaki mahi mahi and the only little complaint would be that I'm used to a sweeter teriyaki flavor and it was a... More

We found it by luck as we were driving looking for a restaurant in the rain. The view overlooking the trees, coastline, bluffs, and aqua blue water was beautiful. The food was delicious, they gave us a complimentary chips, and beans ground up like a dip, awesome! Our family had mussels, tilapia teriyaki , and chicken teriyaki. They also had... More

We went on a Thursday night around sunset and place was pretty quiet. Server was decent and we ordered several small plates to try different items. We had wings, black bean dip, mahi mahi and a Mexican meat dish. All were average to good. We got 2 for 1 drinks and had their Quaro Sour which is decent. All prices... More

Recommended by a local, this place has excellent local food, super fresh sushi and a very fun, friendly and quirky staff. Absolutely my favorite in Quepos and one of the few places bucking the unfortunate trend of much higher dining prices in this area of Quepos.
