Grand Red Snapper!

Very small on the outside, but charming and quaint in the inside. Went in late, so didn't get to enjoy the view. But was told by all, that the Pacific view was great. Low ceilings and no fans. Glad I went late after it had cooled off. As for the food, and as I have said before, my star rating... read more

I love this place. Basic, unassuming, but great fare and great view! The seafood soup is rich and creamy, and huge! The pescado entero is my favorite in town. Great happy hour too!

Manuel Antonio restaurants charge western prices without providing the quality and service. This restaurant has great views of the Pacific. We ate lunch here twice (chicken casado both times) and were generally happy with the food.

We had the best Casado here, during our travels. This region of Costa Rica had higher prices than others we visited; the cost was $10 US

We went there for lunch after the recommendation we saw online. The food is delicious, the steak I had is one of the best that I have ever had. Price is towards the higher end, as expensive as those in the States. The view is beautiful!

This was our first night in Costa Rica and we walked down the street to Mar Luna. It was a lovely meal (we went with the local catch of the day - swordfish - which was cooked in a hearts of palm sauce. I also had the ceviche which was great. Attention to service was fine.
