Excellent food, we had the seafood cigar for an appatizer, for the main course we eat the tuna and the shrimp. Definitely worth a visit.

We enjoyed a delicious meal with very courteous and polished service. The decor & ambience was beatiful, a good blend of Costa Rican/ decor. The menu offerings were intriguing and the 4 of us enjoyed s most. delicious dinner. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. I can't offer opinion on the non seafood items as all of us ordered seafood... More

My group sampled nearly everything on the menu and it was all STELLAR. Please eat here - you will not be disappointed. The macadamia nut-encrusted mahi was so so so good. It's expensive, but worth the price.

Most all Manuel Antonio restaurants serve grilled fish. Our selection was fried. Although good it did not measure up to other local restaurants. They had only had one white and one red wine my the glass. Not very good.

This was a great evening out for dinner. One of the higher priced, but the food was excellent and the wine and coffee topped it. The Fish Cigars were our favorite of the foods. It's a funny name, but so good! The area was a short walk from the hotel.

Open air and beautiful. The place is great! The food is some of the best in the Quepos / Manuel Antonio area. The prices are average for the area. We will eat here again.

After the long climb up to the restaurant with my 90 year old father and husband, we had steak and seared tuna. Both were very good. the tuna came with a great mango salsa. the steak came with a fairly ordinary sauce but acceptable. They under cooked one steak, but fixed that nicely. Good wine list. Nice location if the... More

This is by far one of the best meals I have ever had. Our concierge Ashley, told us to try the Fish Cigars (basically fish spring rolls). We did and were not disappointed! We both ordered the Macadamia Crusted Mahi with a plum sauce. Frankly I could eat this the rest of my life and be ok. We then tried... More
