Last night we went to The Falls hotel and started with cocktails in their beautiful garden. We went in to their beautiful open air restaurant where we were greeted as family and served Cerviche with crispy plantain chips that was straight from heaven. We then ordered a variety of dishes including seared tuna, beef tenderloin, pork tenderloin with peppercorn sauce,... More

We stopped here for lunch and it was outstanding! A cute little poolside restaurant that didn't have the ocean views of its neighbors, but the food was phenomenal and the service was great. Also, it was a plus to be out of the sun for a bit. We had the shrimp tacos and Tipico. Both were soooo delicious, as were... More

We stayed at the Falls Resort during a wonderful week in Manuel Antonio. The Falls Garden Cafe is their in house restaurant and is excellent . The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but is at dinner where the restaurant really shines. The menu is broad and varied, serving pasta, beef, chicken, and fish dishes. All have a signature twist... More

I contacted this restaurant to see if we could work on a menu for a rehearsal dinner for 40 people. They were one of the few restaurants that worked with me via email, planning food, setting up a price, and then delivering such a fantastic meal. Sara was such a great help and very responsive. Because of the number of... More

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
