Stumbled upon this place while getting colones at the ATM across the street. Great food! Arroz con pollo was delicious and well portioned. Service was a tad slow.

A local tour guide recommended El Jardin, and we went for dinner (although we heard that it's definitely great for almuerzo/lunch). During our stay we dined at various nice restaurants in the Manuel Antonio area, but for me, the meal at El Jardin stands out as one of the best. I had fried snapper and patacones (plantains fried sort of... More

The food itself is not fine dining (and nobody would expect that in a place like this either) but the service was nice and fast. I was surprised how expensive the food was, though.

We have been here several times, mainly for lunch but also for breakfast. We have always been provided with good food and good portions. Service is good and the place is very clean. Would recommend to anyone for any reason. It's not fine dining but quality is very good.

Came here on recommendation from a lovely artist's studio down the block. It's where I learned the difference between "Rice & Shrimp" and "Shrimp & Rice" = the amount of shrimp, and that it's common in Costa Rica to serve French fries with rice. My meal, accompanied by a perfect latte was tasty enough (excellent texture on the shrimp) for... More

We don't even remember what we ordered. This was our first meal in Costa Rica and it was disappointing and not cheap either. We had way better meals at the Sodas like Soda Sanchez in Quepos, which is very good.

We stumbled upon this place after a quick scout of restaurants in quepos and a real craving for seafood. We usually eat at budget places but this took our fancy and didn't seem too much out of our budget considering how much others in the area were charging. So to sum up: -English speaking (partial) -friendly, polite welcome -tasty tasty... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. It was wonderful. Great food, excellent service. Note that they don't serve alcohol, if this is important to you. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
