Definitely worth a visit!

really great food and service. Very reasonable prices for an upscale restaurant. We liked the variety on the menu. Ambience was the best in the area for sure.

we expected more for the price and reviews, very limited choices, the two we chose were very disappointing. The main dishes alone get only 2 stars.

The food here was very good and the covered outdoor dining was attractive. Best to dress up a little for this one, and make a reservation in advance.

We loved the feel of this restaurant. It was expensive, but we knew this when we decided to go there. The food was excellent, the service was great, it was probably still a little over-priced for quality, but we wanted a higher-end local dining experience and got exactly that.

We had a party of 13 and they were able to accomdate us at the last minute. The restaurant didn't have the spctacular views that other restaurants have in the area, but the food and service made up for it. Also, they had a pretty good wine list that can be a challenge in Costa Rica. I would come here... More

We ate at this restaurant at our last night in the area. The food is very good, but overpriced, especially the cocktails. I had the stuffed zucchini and my husband the calamari. We were both happy with our meals and thought portion sizes were quite large. The restaurant is definitely worth a try, but there are other restaurants in the... More

This is one of the best steaks in Manuel Antonio. Nice open air seating, great service, worth a try.

This is an attractive place with consistency in cuisine. So often places disappoint when you go back. But this was as delicious as the first visit. Seafood cigars and lettuce cup chicken were Asian influenced and terrific! The macadamia crusted mahi, while ubiquitous elsewhere was tasty. Pleasant surroundings, attentive professional service and delicious and inexpensive Spanish Cava!

This is in a pleasant situation, but no view. The food was competent but not great. The seafood cigars(!) were solid and tasteless. The fish was enjoyed by us 4, but not especially memorable. The wines were modest in choice but expensive.
