The food and service were first rate; genuine Costa Rican dishes; fully flavorful coffee and the drinks were made and served with verve and pizazz

We loved this restaurant. Relatively expensive for the area, but worth it! Also very acommodating (I have a few different food allergies and they made sure everything that came on my plate was safe). We'd go back, for sure.

My husband and I stayed at Arenas Del Mar and decided to eat at the restaurant there (El Mirador) for almost every meal because it was so delicious! The meals are creative with several options. The drinks are excellent as well. The food is not cheap, but worth every penny for the quality and taste. The staff is wonderful. They... More

This is the best place to eat in Manuel Antonio. The food is great and the service is amazing. They cater to everyone, with a variety of options, including gluten free! They also had vegeterian and meat lover options. I have celiac disease and was overwhelmed by the staffs' knowledge of the disease and the extensive menu for me. Everyone... More

We stayed 9 nights at Arenas del Mar. We had breakfast at El Mirador every morning, and dined there 7 out of 9 nights. Those two nights we went elsewhere because we wanted to try some of Manuel Antonio's celebrated restaurants but, honestly, we didn't need to look anywhere else for excellent food and service. By our 3rd night dining... More

I ate every meal during my time in Costa Rica at Arenas del Mar except one when I went ziplining. Much of Costan Rican cuisine is naturally gluten-free. There was always lots of fresh fruit, beans, rice, meats, chicken, and fish. This made my dining decisions relatively easy. Even with the naturally gluten-free menu, the staff went the extra mile...

We stayed at Arenas del Mar and the food here is outstanding. The view overlooks the cliff and has the beach in the distance. Sometimes if you're lucky you'll see a monkey hanging from the trees. For breakfast, the traditional gallo pinto is to die for! Also, they bring out a tray of fresh exotic fruits. It's always nice to... More

the menu is not huge and it is pricey but the food is really good. I wouldn't recommend the chicharrones but the rest of the food choices are amazing.

I have wanted to visit Costa Rica for a long time, but travelling with celiac disease and eating gluten free can be difficult. When I heard that Arenas Del Mar was having a week for the gluten free community Sept 13-20, my boyfriend and I knew we had to go. For a whole week, everything at El Mirador was gluten... More
