This was one of the first restaurants we ate at in Costa Rica and there are really very few "bad" places to eat. The food was tasty and reasonably priced and service was excellent. Right on the beach, was great for a late night stroll.

We recently stopped into El Sol as it was a short walk from our beach house in Manuel Antonio and is a great location next to the beach. The food and service was very good and the price compared with other restaurants in the Quepos Manual Antonio area was very fair. I would recommend the costa rican food plate with... More

I find that the key while eating in a different country is trying only local fare. While El Sol is touristy--all restaurants in Manuel Antonio seem to be--there are several Costa Rican dishes to try. I sampled the Fish Casado that featured a generous portion of Mahi Mahi, rice, black beans, grilled plantain and a salad. It was delicious. My... More

My friend and I were exploring Manuel Antonio when we decided to stop in from some food at El Sol Restaurante. The location and the ambiance is fantastic. The owner is super friendly and on point when he told us the food would be some of the best we would find in MA. We had a seafood trio that was... More

I've been to El Sol several times and have never been disappointed. The customer service is great, the food is delicious and the plate sizes are enormous! Also, if you go during sunset, you will LOVE the view. If you are out at the beach, definitely stop by. Or if you want to watch a local game, this is the... More

We were staying close by, so it was very convenient to find a restaurant without having to walk a mile in the hot sun. The service and food were great. We came here a couple of times, once for lunch after a hot walk on the beach and once for an ice cream treat with our granddaughter. I would definitely... More

We had dinner here on New Years Eve and watched the sunset from our table. Gorgeous views, great staff, huge portions and lovely restaurant. If we lived nearby we would go here every night! Thanks for a great dinner following a fantastic day ziplining, playing on the beach and watching monkeys.

Wow. Enormous portions. Perfect beach location, steps away from the public beach. We ordered way too much food. Delicious guacamole and chicken quesadillas. Fresh pineapple drinks too.
