“Food served with love.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

Our family of 10 had a wonderful experience here. We were greeted so warmly, service was quick. We all ordered something different and shared. My son, who loves trying different hot sauces from around the world, asked if they had anything other than the tabasco and he was given some of the chef's own blend. My son, loved it, even though he was sweating profusely. He asked if it was for sale and no, it is not. He saved a little of his food for the next day so he could enjoy it all over again! It was a great evening.

“Great views and Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

This place was an amazing find! I just happened to be in the area and stopped in. They are open all day and have great breakfast and lunch/dinner. The service is great and the staff is extremely friendly. I ate here numerous times and would love to go back. The ocean view is breathtaking!

“Great atmosphere, good food, nice change of pace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

We recently returned to Cantina Salsipuedes after about two years and were pleasantly surprised to discover that time had not impacted either the great ambiance or the tasty dishes. While the menu is primarily tapas, there are are other entrees-although I would recommend sampling several of the tapas plates.

The servings are plentiful and full of flavor. The staff is friendly and attentive-even though there are only two- three servers on duty.at a time. Whether you're looking for a quick lunch or a late night dinner, this little tapas place will leave you feeling satisfied and smiling.

“Winner Best Local Hangout in Manuel Antonio 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

The residents of Manuel Antonio and Quepos have chosen Salsipuedes (leave if you can) as their new favorite local hangout in the Best of Manuel Antonio & Quepos 2014. This restaurant has a wonderful blend of delicious tapas (appetizers) and a magnificent ocean view, expats and Ticos (Costa Ricans), and a friendly staff with good service. Sunsets are particularly awesome here.
