This is the second time we have eaten here and both times have been very enjoyable. With live music, a wonderful view of the Pacific and good food we had a very nice outing. Located at hotel Si Como No, it was an easy walk from our nearby hotel, Villas Nikolas.

Although the mojitos and other cocktails are excellent, I have to recommend the Rico Tico --light and refreshing, not too sweet. We have eaten here numerous times while traveling around Costa Rica over the last 20 years. It is consistently good for cocktails, snacks, lunch, and dinner. For snacks, we like the patacones, fried yuca, and the huge nachos to... More

Dear SpeakeasyFL: It made us very proud to know that you find consistency as one of our best attributes and especially if you confirm that over the last 20 years since we first opened. We’ll give your regards to Omar and to our chef, Jose Miguel, whose recipes you have enjoyed. See you again soon!! Best regards, Steven Flores Supervisor More

Excellent bar and grill in easily the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The food was really tasty and fairly moderately priced, the staff were friendly, laid back and accommodating, the cocktails (particularly the mojitos and daiquiris) were tremendous and the view was mind blowing. Can't recommend this place enough. Pura vida amigos!

We had the best time staying at the resort this bar is attached to with our family. They made our time extra special with their attention, smiles and delicious food.

We came here after walking back from the park, and were tired and hungry, and this was perfect - it was sunset and the food was good, and it wasn't expensive, and not super crowded. It made us regret not staying at this hotel too!

A great restaurant and a great view! Be sure to require Julio for a server- he's the best! If you stay at the Si Como No hotel you get a complimentary breakfast there. However, do you not have to stay at the hotel to eat at the restaurant. I highly suggest it!

When in Manuel Antonio, stop in at the Rico Tico Bar and Grill for a delicious meal and gorgeous ocean views. The smoothies are out of this world. It is a fine way to spend some relaxing time. We are particularly appreciative of Omar, a restaurant staff member, for his outstanding service, attention, and friendliness. Cannot wait to come back!
