After a great day at the park we were looking around for a place to quench our thirst and stopped in here. While sipping on our drinks, we noticed the specials board and noticed they had fresh lobster and whole red snapper, both of which I had wanted to try since I got here. Couldn't decide which to get when... More

This was our favorite restaurant in Manuel Antonio--so much so we went several times. The guacamole and picodegallo salsa are amazing! My kids who don't normally like that stuff, loved it. The prices are reasonable, drinks are good, and everyone was satisfied with their food. They even have American style kids' meals like mini corn dogs. I split the fish... More

While visiting Manual Antonio, either after the national park jungle tours and or enjoying the beautiful beach and other available amenities, El Sol provides service of great food and drinks at the restaurant as well as hand delivered to your side while lounging on the beach. Makes the day complete.

People keep saying Costa Rica isn't known for their food but this place is really good! It looks unsuspecting, I mean it's a place you can order a bucket of beer, but the meal I had there might have been the best I've had in Costa Rica. It's nothing fancy, just good traditional Costa Rican food with amazing flavor. We... More

As the sun set over the ocean, my husband and I enjoyed smoothies to cool off after being on the beach all afternoon. The open air 2nd floor seating was really nice. Great view! We couldn't stay for dinner, but I've heard the seafood is excellent.

We stayed in Manual Antonio for 4 nights and ate a meal here every day. The ceviche was amazing. I raved about it so much our waiter brought me into the kitchen to personally tell the chef! The service was excellent and friendly. The seating was open air overlooking the ocean. Besides the ceviche we also enjoyed the casadas and... More

El Sol was recommended by a waiter in our hotel who knew the chef. He said this chef knew how to cook, so we decided to go there after a busy morning of hiking and swimming at Manel Antonio Park. We were not disappointed! I need to explain that my husband is a chef, so we tend to be picky... More
