Best meal in Costa Rica, 10th day. I had the mahi and will be trying other dishes before I leave. The large tourist restaurant are just a waste of time (think big plane)

We had the pleasure of staying at the Bali House which is right below Raphael's. Our group is SO glad we stumbled into Raphael's the first night we arrived in Costa Rica because Raphael and his staff made our trip one to remember. We stayed 8 days and nowhere in Quepos could beat the drinks at Raphael's--- mojitos and white... More

We received a recommendation from a local for Raphael's Terrazes and gave it a shot. Very nice staff, great service, fresh food and fair prices....what more could you ask for? Tried the tuna, it was excellent! And my wife had the filet which was very good too!

We went to watch the sunset and we were not disappointed. The views are great, the service is very good, and our food was fresh and delish. We ordered a couple of mojitos, and the seafood platter for two. The platter had a gorgeous lobster, huge shrimp, tuna steak, red snapper, and some potatoes and plantains. Let's just say we... More

When come on our annual trip to Costa Rica love to splurge and enjoy the views of the magnificent Manuel Antonio Coastline. Raphael's Terrazas is a great place for a meal with sublime views over beautiful rocky islands down below, great food, and owner/staff who are committed to customer satisfaction. This time we were delighted to learn they have added... More

We went to this place recommended by the Hotel in Manuel Antonio. It was nice, food was well done, but it was nothing special and would not be worth going back. We went after the sunset so we could not experience the view that everyone is raving about. We tried the sushi, mainly for curiosity. It was just OK, the... More

Our hotel recommended Raphael's Terrazas for dinner and we came away thinking that it was a pretty average experience. First the positive: our waiter Freddy couldn't have been friendlier, accommodating all of our special requests when ordering. He really tried hard to please us. Another positive was the fact that the food was served pretty quickly, which isn't always the... More

what more could you want. I was in the area for three nights and ate here two times (one dinner, one lunch). Super nice staff (one of the reasons why i came back). The mahi mahi was very good and they do a nice cerviche (probably prefer chips as the side vs the fried plantains, but they were interesting). Next... More

We eat here every time we are in the Manuel Antonio area! More than once usually! Truly one of our favorite places. The food is excellent and the staff are the best you'll find! My favorite dishes are the mahi-mahi, the tuna or the sea bass! I would recommend this restaurant to everybody! Can't wait to go back next year!... More
