They pick you up at the gatehouse of the hotel in a golf cart and whisk you up the hill! Then you take an elevator up even higher and arrive at the restaurant. The view of the ocean from on high is amazing, as was the live band playing up front. Our server was outstanding and I was very excited!... More

My wife and I stayed at the Gaia a few years ago, so when we were in Manuel Antonio we had to go back and enjoy La Luna. It was just as good as we remembered. We started with Happy Hour, the tuna sashimi is a must! We enjoyed that with some chicken satay and watched the incredible sunset. We... More

We did not stay here, but wanted to venture out from our hotel. We chose here and were glad we did. They had a great menu and the food was delicious! Just as pricey as our hotel, but they had an amazing view (we watched a beautiful sunset from our table) and it was nice to try something else. Very... More

Beautiful, modern restaurant on a high hill overlooking the ocean. Go early for the sunset, listen to the music, and enjoy great food and service afterward. The menu was large and had a nice mix of Costa Rican specialties and international cuisine. The price is the only reason it's not a 5, but seemed on-par with the level of hotel.

First, the service was just great. All of the gentlemen were exceedingly polite and courteous, and catered to our every need. We enjoyed a wonderful selection of delicately prepared seafood entrees, including very fresh fish and an amazing Peruvian seafood casserole. The cocktails were also simply delicious, and served as the perfect complement to our meal. Overall, one of the... More

Dinner last night at La Luna was the best meal of our entire 8 day trip in Costa Rica. Service was outstanding and only outdone by the food. Beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious. I had the ginger and panko crusted ahi tuna which was out of this world. Fish was caught fresh the day of our meal. Chocolate lava cake... More

My new daughter in law who lives in Manuel Antonio recommended this highly. Not too pricy but super value for what we thought would have been much more expensive. First you park and attendants whisk you to the top of the mtn. by golf cart. A live band greeted us in the open air pavilion at sunset, beautiful! We made... More

La Luna is a standout in the mixture of properties vying for tourist trade in Manuel Antonio. Striking architecture, attentive staff who transport you to the restaurant, and then the spectacular restaurant with its panorama view of the Pacific Ocean. Sunset simply accentuates the ambiance. Servers are excellent. The menu offers plausible choices, not an unrealistic endless list that engenders... More

Me encanta la com idea aqui! The food was so delicious and the drinks were great! The bartender, Joshua, makes the best caipirinhas my husband and I have ever had! Definitely would recommend the coconut crusted Mahi Mahi and the Shrimp Tag :) The service was also very good!
