When I lived in Manuel Antonio, I would always recommend Raphael's Terrazas for the food, service, and value. Raphael and his crew are very welcoming, and know how to treat their guests. It is one of the restaurants in the area at which the locals and tourists won't break the bank. Also- the bar is a great place to have drinks- casual and low key.
