We had dinner and drinks here on our recent trip to Manuel Antonio. Typically the food and value for money is not that great along the main street, but this is a gem. It is highly recommended for tourists who want to catch a great sunset while sipping on tropical cocktails. The sunset view from the hill looking down on... More

Definitely a tasty meal, we really enjoyed our time at Ronny's place. The fish was clearly very fresh and best part of our meal was the ceviche. For a place known for its sangria, we weren't super impressed but still thoroughly enjoyed it. We were disappointed that it was cloudy so we didn't get the full meal and view beauty... More

We have been going to Costa Rica for 20+ years and since we have discovered this place it is a stop we make every trip. The views are outstanding and the food is great. It is a guaranteed good experience and worth the bumpy road drive out to it.

Come before sunset, to watch the sunset. Come for a few drinks while the sun sets, or come for that plus dinner (like we did.) We came here our first night in Manuel Antonio/Quepos. It's a ways down a dirt road, so get a cab to help you find it. It's an outdoor restaurant with a roof, overlooking the spectacular... More

We went there dinner on December 28, 2016. Be prepared - the road is unpaved with no street light, not a lot of parking space either. The place was very popular. We sat on the outdoor table with only candle light on the table. (There is no other light source). We used our iPhone's flashlight to read the menu. The... More

My son ate the red snapper and was violently ill that night. We had to miss whitewater rafting the next day. Of course we cannot prove it , but that was the only thing that made sense - the rest of the food was good and the atmosphere was open and casual with a view of the ocean

Our AirBnB host recommended this place for sunset. We arrived early and managed to get a table outside. The sangria was amazing but good we felt was overpriced and average. If we were to go again it would only be for a drink to watch the sunset which was worth the drive up there.

Ronny's Place was highly recommended by our concierge and she was right! Although we were too late for the sunset, the ambience of the open air restaurant, the music (songs upon request) and the food were exceptional! It really is a "can't miss" if you are in the Manuel Antonio area.

We had drinks and a few snacks at ronny's and enjoyed it totally! The view is perfect for watching the sunrise and finish the day off perfectly!
