Really liked how the cafe interpreted menu items to make the foods familiar but give a Costa Rican flair to the. Great for breakfast and lunch. I didn't try dinner there as I ate in Si Como No's main dinner restaurant (which as also top notch). Looking forward to coming back next year.

We spent 5 nights at the Si Como No in Manuel Antonio (along with our group of 20 friends) enjoying the best vacation experience of my 63 years. The Rico Tico Bar and Grill was the place to be casual and relax, enjoy great food and drink, service and views in between our many activities. It was like coming home... More

We were staying at the hotel so had breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner in the restaurant at various times. We enjoyed all of our meals and the staff was helpful and friendly.

In our neighbouring hotel, follow the signs to the Rico Tico bar. My husband and I found this place just walking around and exploring the area. 2 for 1 happy hour. Awesome view. We stayed for a drink but didn't eat.

Excellent service. The servers all took part in building a bed for our sleeping baby. The huge portions were delicious, I had to finish my wife's meal for her. (Always happy to help) Reasonable prices. Amazing views. Highly recommended.
