We visited this restaurant for dinner. We saw the positive reviews of this place before going there. It is situated inside a resort and it's surrounded by beautiful greenery. It was on Friday and we were pretty surprised there were noone else besides our family. The interior is tastefully decorated and the staff is very friendly. We ordered 4 different... More

This was one of our favorite meals in Costa Rica. My wife had a delicious shrimp entree and I had an amazing pork tenderloin. It's a great atmosphere by the waterfall and the pool and the staff is very kind. The prices are very reasonable as our entire meal with alcohol was around $50. Definitely a highlight of our trip.

We were touring Costa Rica. It is a beautiful country, with very friendly people. We were tired of the usual fare of chicken and rice with beans. The rice and beans came with every meal including breakfast. Thanks to Trip Advisor we found the Falls Garden. We actually had taken a bus to go to Aqua Azulejo, only to find... More

The ambience of a place is as important to me as great food. This place has both. We stayed at The Falls in Manual Antonio (where the restaurant is) and ate here many times. The food was always consistent and good. The wait staff friendly and caring. Thumbs up!

When I ate at the Falls Garden Cafe, it was mostly during breakfast. There were some times when we were in a rush and we had to order our breakfast and couldn't eat all of it because of the time. The waiter always made sure that our breakfast order was speeded so that we would have enough time to eat.... More

Most of the time when I travel (with or without my family) I try to not eat at hotel restaurants. However, when we got to Manuel Antonio we just wanted to something quick. We were shocked by how good and fresh the food tasted. My wife and I had the tropical shrimp tacos, my son (2 years old) had the... More

Great meal and a great experience. The restaurant is in a nice little hotel. The food was really well prepared, with super fresh seafood. The sea bass was excellent and my wife had the Seafood Tagliatelle which was amazing. The food was reasonably priced and the service was awesome. Definitely would recommend for anyone visiting MA.

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.
