Best food in Manuel Antonio?

What are your favorite places to eat, and drink, in MA? Would love to hear everyone's favorites, from beach vendors to sodas to bars to restaurants . . .

Thanks,

For me, one of the tastiest places in Quepos is Bohemia cafe. I love Marjorie's chicken curry. Everything is fresh. It is a tiny place.

There certainly is a wide variety of restaurants in various price ranges. The previous posts have given good suggestions.

Agree mostly, but as a food blogger, www.costaricaeats.com, I also have my favorites, and as a native New Yorker, I kinda have strong opinions, ;-)

The above food blog has a selection from a complete restaurant guide to Costa Rica that was formerly put out by the Tico Times, and will someday be converted into an eBook.

Yup, Kapi Kapi, El Patio Bistro/Cafe Milagro, Gran Escape and Agua Azul, all amongst my favorites...

I think Rafael's Terrazas giving Ronny's a run for the money these days...

I hope this doesn't violate any TA advertising guidelines, as the blog is not a business, does not make money, etc, etc...

Love the whole fish at Rafael's Las Terrazas, coffee at Cafe Milagro, 2 for 1 burgers on Tuesdays at Barba Roja, the calamari appetizer and Tuna Margarita at Agua Azul, Sunday breakfast at Arenas del Mar, and the spicy chicken wings at NGO. Emilio's Cafe has yummy falafels and desserts to-die-for like passion fruit pie. There's a short strip of reasonable restaurants on the hill, which includes NGO and Emilio's.
