Great food, smoothies and views

We walked to this place after spending a few hours on the beach. It was clean and the service was quick. We sat and looked out over the beach and boardwalk while enjoying our delicious meals and smoothies. Would definitely recommend!

We at there for one night to get away from our expensive Hotel Parador dinner prices. The food and drinks were reasonably priced. The quality was outstanding. My wife had the best mojito she ever had there. The ceviche and fish were both done very well. Wait staff was very good. They were very attentive and showed interest in us.

On our second visit to this restaurant, we asked the manager what he would recommend. He said to try the whole, fried, red snapper with prawns and garlic sauce. During the next week, we ordered this three times it was so amazing! But we did have to ask for the garlic sauce and it is part of what makes this... More

With still several days left in Costa Rica, wanted to throw a shout out to El Sol. We went here for a bite to eat as it appeared to be the only restaurant with reasonable by this area prices, and a somewhat local appeal. Well, we were completely blown away by food here as well as the service. The first... More

You go to a restaurant for the food. Here uv got the added advantage of the view. Ronald and all his staff are very attentive. Lili is superb! But the seafood is incredible. Ok it's Costa Rica so what would u expect? This is one place where quality and price do match up.

This restaurant is right across the street from Playa Espadilla. Get the beach view seating on the second floor - gorgeous! We both got the typical Costa Rican casado dinner here, which was delicious. The prices were unbeatable, too. We went on a less crowded night and had a few people stop us outside, trying to help us park our... More

We had a fine tuna steak with fresh salad and a well seasoned arroz con mariscos with really good fruit batido at reasonable prices for this place. From the first floor you can enjoy the awesome colors of the sunset. The restaurant may be crowded on the weekends.

We ate here 3 times during December and were very impressed, the steaks in mushroom sauce were big, juicy and by local standards very good value. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Would definitely eat there again

It's in Manuel Antonio village by the beach, above a supermarket and screens filled with sports (not an advantage for us!) but we went because of the great trip advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The fresh tuna steak with soy sauce and wasabi was very big and delicious and the beef Casado was excellent - juicy steak and tasty. Excellent... More
