Great Lunch with Great View

After a long hike at the Park we walked over to El Sol and enjoyed a great lunch and cocktail while looking over the water and people watching on the streets below. Enjoy the moment and the food. Both are worth it.

this unassuming place served up some nice food for dinner, its reasonably priced, the waiters were friendly and gave good advice on some of the local dishes. Ok its not the most aesthetic but I left feeling full and happy.

We stayed in Manuel Antonio for about 5 days and came here almost every day. The "Casado" plate is amazing and a must try. The drinks are great too ! We sat overlooking the beach and had a great time. Would definitely recommend to anyone. Our server Jonathan was beyond great !

Our guide Saul brought us here after a tour of the park and we ordered fresh red snapper with fried plantain, yuca fritters and guayabana smoothies. All so deliciously prepared and will vote it our best meal while Costa Rica. Friendly staff as well.

We were staying 4 days in this village by the entrance of Mauel Antonio National Park. The village isn't that big and most of the places are small B&B and hotels. There are a few places to eat here and there, but the amount of places to choose from isn't that high. With that in mind we didn't have high... More

They also make fresh smoothies in mango, coconut and a few other flavors. Priced very reasonably being right on the beach. Kid menu is also available. TIP. They will let you use the restroom to change... More

The thing that sticks out about this place is the wonderful ceviche and the beautiful sunset. We sat up on the second floor balcony with a couple coronas and watched the sun go down. We liked it so much we went back the following afternoon. We had grilled mahi and more ceviche. No complaints at all. The servers were always... More

Our concierge recommended this restaurant and called ahead for a table. I was impressed with the quality of food. My kids were getting tired of "Costa Rican" faire after a week traveling around so my son ordered spaghetti Bolognese. WOW! It was better than I'd had in some Italian restaurants. The rest of us had fresh fruit drinks and chips/guacamole.... More
