Beautiful sunset! Excellent seafood sampler!

We were recommended by our local hotel, La Mariposa, that this was a local's favourite for seafood. Excellent seafood variety plate, even though it was the priciest item the waiter suggested it was for two before I could order a second meal. Good place to eat with a beautiful view for sunset but if... read more

We just spent a week in Quepos (hint: don't stay at the Shana Hotel), but I digress . . . We were lucky enough to get a great taxi driver (Yader) the first day that we called the whole week. He recommended La Luna, which was just awesome!!! It is quiet, and romantic. My husband and I split a tuna... More

We happened on to Mar Luna, and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was great. I had a seafood casado, which reminded me of a paella. The food was tasty and well presented. My wife commented that she enjoyed watching me "get after" my food.

We had a misunderstanding with the waiter when ordering the drinks. He brought us an additional drink and refused to take it back! After paying the bill, I asked for the person in charge and I was told no one was responsible for the business at that time. Too bad they preferred to lose a customer for a $7 cocktail.... More

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary dinner, it was recommended by Kimberly, our house manager at Casa Panarama, it did not disappoint! The food was fantastic, but the restaurant itself is beautiful and the view is worth going up just to watch the sunset while having a wonderful dinner.
