Best dinner in Manuel Antonio! Every bite a burst of flavor. Starting with noodle salad with beef, an appetizer enough for 2, seasoned and spiced....very tasty. We had the Asian Peppercorn seared ahi tuna and macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi. Both absolutely delicious. The tuna included a Thai green papaya salad that complimented perfectly......truly a chefs touch and not simply... More

We had eaten here when we visited 2 years ago and returned twice on our most recent trip. The food is outstanding and our server, Nelson, made the experience even more memorable. We had the Thai lettuce wraps for an appetizer and then the tuna and shrimp ravioli for our main dishes. Both were excellent. For dessert we shared the... More

The chicken and shrimp was tasteless. It seemed that they were frozen before they were cooked. The noodle salad was very good. I really can not recommend this place. The food is just not that great. The place was nice and the staff was very friendly.

After 5 days in manuel, I would have to say this was our favorite meal. Both mahi and snapper were delicious, service was excellent, and the desert was the perfect ending. Walking distance from tulemar.

Fairly new restaurant. Had our best meal here while in Costa Rica. Walking distance from Tulemar. Super service, quiet atmosphere. We all had spectacular meals, beautifully plated. Won't disappoint.

Architecturally the place is a gem at night and despite no ocean views, it has a charming chill vibe about it. The lettuce wraps were super but no surprises in terms of prep or ingredients. If you like them at PF Changs you will love them here. The signature Mahi Mahi was overcooked and the crust kept life itself from... More

The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. After being in this area for 4 nights I would have to say this is one of the nicer restaurants we attended. I had the crusted Mahi Mahi which was cooked to perfection with an excellent chili sauce. My husband had the snapper which i have to admit was better than my mahi.... More

Fantastic food....more upscale than most places in the area. Feels almost like a Houston's or Bandera, if you're familiar. Kids (11 and 13) loved it. They have the best souffle we've ever had. In fact, we returned on New Year's Eve just for the souffle. Highly recommend.
