Our best meal in Manuel Antonio. Food prepared to perfection. Save room for the chocolate soufflé which should be ordered with main course as it takes 30 minutes to prepare.

We overheard someone recommending this restaurant and were not disappointed. The service and fish were excellent. We didn't really have room for the chocolate souffle but couldn't stop eating it.

I'm salivating just thinking about our dinner! It is a nicer restaurant but don't be intimidated- people were dressed very casual. The service was great and the atmosphere was very nice.

I had the best tuna ever at Kapi Kapi, and it is a beautiful place. Would recommend this restaurant if eating in Manuel Antonio. One of the better ones we ate at during our 10 day stay.

This place has good ambiance, no doubt. Decent service and decent food too. But, it was pricey given the better places nearby.

We were here a few years ago when touring the pacific coast and Manuel Antonio National Park. We found this restaurant based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. Wonderful atmosphere and good service. Being a vegetarian I even found things to eat on the menu.
