Get the lobster, shrimp and red snapper dish. The snapper was the best we'd ever had and even without Mar Luna's special butter sauce, the lobster and shrimp were so flavorful. We're big seafood lovers and critics, and Mar Luna exceeded our expectations. Not to mention, the view at sunset, even a cloudy-ish one---just gorgeous!

This was hands-down one of the best meals I've eaten in Costa Rica. While I've found Costa Rican cuisine to be rather bland, this evening's meal was tasty all around. The fish was grilled to perfection and the plantains candied and crisp. The service was impeccable and the free wifi an added bonus. The ambiance was topped off by an... More

If your looking for a beautiful, panoramic view of the ocean, this is the place to go. The seafood was fresh/tasty, but a little pricey. Service was on point and I would definitely suggest this place if your not worried about spending a few extra colones.

Beautiful setting with wonderful view of the ocean. Best seafood we had while in Costa Rica. Also the candlelit setting at night makes it the perfect place for a romantic dinner.

I've eaten here a few times and a must try is their blackened Tuna, or their shrimps with the Palmito sauce and I really love the seafood soup. I can see why it's the owners favorite. My husband and I on our anniversary had the lobster special for two with a bottle of wine and it was awesome. Fresh and... More

Three of us ate lunch here and we all thought our meals were great. The seafood was excellent. There was also a beautiful view of the ocean. I would recommend this restaurant to others.

We brought our fresh caught mahi-mahi for the chef to prepare-- great views from the cliff-side seating. The fish was served grilled with fresh vegetables and rice. The heart of palm sauce was served on the side and was so good we asked for a second bowl of it!
