Great food in a small restaurant

We had dinner here one evening and the appetizers and entrees were great. The service was attentive. We also liked the atmosphere. It is an intimate hotel restaurant and has lush tropical vegetation growing all around it. The prices were about average for this area.

Great service, nice private setting, and a yummy menu. My husband loved his seafood dish. I'm a vegetarian, and there isn't a lot on the menu, but they will make any of their dishes without meat. I had the pesto chicken pasta with no chicken, and it was fabulous. Our appetizers - avocado rolls and a plantain dish - were... More

we have been in Manuel Antonio for 11 days. Just had one of our best dinners. The tuna with pineapple was amazing and the chicken and pesto absolutely delicious. Restaurant in the back of a small hotel. Doesn't look promising but don't pass it up m

Very nice meal but unfortunately the service was rushed from start to finish so the experience wasn't nearly as enjoyable as it could have been. The servers need to time things much better with the kitchen so guests don't feel rushed.

Had the firecracker app - nothing special and not at all spicy???? They had a good children's menu- and the gave out placemats and crayons- a nice touch that... More

We ate here twice and were not disappointed. The Mahi Mahi was excellent, served in a beautiful tasty sauce. Prices were not too expensive and on both nights some had puddings which they really enjoyed. It doesn't look much from the outside, but go in and enjoy.

My friend and I decided to have lunch at The Falls Garden Cafe. Our server was very pleasant, answered our questions, and did not rush us. We lingered before ordering, and when we did, accommodations/ modifications were made to our orders. My friend ordered the chicken and salad wrap. The chicken was grilled and lightly seasoned. It was combined with... More

This restaurant was recommended by our Hotel and it lived up to expectations. They were very busy that day but our server Luis helped us pick the vegetarian food - not listed on their menu. Food was good,we had veggie quesadillas and pesto pasta, both were excellent. The quesadillas had plenty of vegetables and was served with guacamole and salsa.... More
