We watched the rematch between Costa Rica & Uraguay here & had a great meal. Lots of fun with the excitement of the game. You can sit by the open area overlooking the sidewalk & people watch.

El Sol was recommended to us by a local as a place to watch the Costa Rica / Uruguay re-match. Was an awesome game, Costa Rica winning in the second set of penalty kicks, place went nuts. Food and beer reasonably priced, to be honest I remember more of the game than the quality of the food. I tend to... More

Our family had lunch her and it was good but a little pricier than other places in Manuel Antonio but still reasonable. The only bad thing is parking is very limited. We had to pay someone that claimed territory to that part of the public parking on the street $4. to park. This occurs all around the part area, you... More

We enjoyed our time at Restaurante and Sports Bar El Sol. It was an open air restaurant which offered a good view of the town/beach. It was well-maintained with good food quality, drinks, and service! The atmosphere was very fun and inviting. We would highly recommend this place.

We were really in a pinch one evening and couldn't find any vegan food in our hotel or any restaurant close by. Everything was closing at 9 pm and it was 8 pm! We were hungry. Through happy cow we came across this restaurant being veg friendly - so we called them and asked them what time they closed, and... More

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.
