This was the place for our Valentine dinner this year and it proved to be a tremendous choice. The staff was most congenial and efficient. The food was delicious (especially their version of mashed plantains). The price was very reasonable for the quality of food they served. I recommend this restaurant for everyone to try when in Manual Antonio. ps... More

This restaurant is part of the hotel where we stayed but the great food is the reason we ate there four  nights Everything was cooked and presented with gourmet quality of a fine dining restaurant. The prices were lower than most other dinners we had experienced elsewhere but with higher quality, so the value cannot be beat, even the desserts... More

I visit this place almost every time I am in the area as I consider it to be one of the best overall dining places in all of Manuel Antonio. It is set inside a hotel and and is open air but does not have the big sunset views as it does not face the ocean. I tend to go... More

Went with 2 other friends for dinner. Lovely poolside setting. We all ordered the fish special, which was very good & tasty.

After reading some of the current reviews I was a bit hesitant to try this spot. However, I was convinced by my friends who have been here on a few occasions that I “must” try it. I did. This is a remarkably well composed restaurant with an equally able chef, food and service. We (four adults) had a remarkable meal... More

We stayed at the Falls Resort and ended up eating at the on-site restaurant for most of our meals and were not disappointed. Everything was wonderful and great service!

I've been to the Falls a few times and enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner on different occasions. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. They have a nice salad option (which is sometimes hard to get in Costa Rica) and I love the sweet potato chips. My family all ordered the hamburgers last time and said they were good.... More

We stopped into this restaurant for breakfast based on location to the villa we were staying. They have a breakfast buffet for $8 and you basically choose a few items to go with the laid out buffet. We chose to order skillets but since they cost $8 we were able to help ourselves to the buffet which had juice, coffee,... More

We arrived at Falls Garden with great anticipation based on a strong recommendation from a friend and the many enthusiastic reviews on TA. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The room, itself, is open, pleasant and not too crowded. Tables were busy which led us to believe we were in the right place. However, we soon noticed that only one server was... More
