This was a good restaurant, but it was a little oversold by our hotel concierge. I'd give it an A-. Nothing bad but not spectacular. A little expensive.

This is by far the best restaurant in Manuel Antonio. We've stayed in this area 5 times now and have tried almost every restaurant there is, and we always go back to Ronny's Place because the food is excellent! The view is excellent! And the service is the best there is! Amazing staff and Ronny is always there to greet... More

The food and atmosphere was spot on. The waitstaff were great. The portions were perfect. A taste of Costa Rica for sure. Would definitely come back.

We came here for drinks at the suggestion of our hotel in Manuel Antonio. We had drinks and two appetizers. The shrimp casserole was tasty and the guacamole and chips. The shrimp casserole said it came with bread but it really just came with a few crackers. The food didn't really seem worth the money for the kind of restaurant.... More

Very expensive restaurant. The view is nice. The food was tasty but I finished the meal very hungry! The fish of the day was very small and the steaks were too done and too small. We won't come here once again...

We ended up coming to Ronny's place twice during our weeklong stay in Manuel Antonio. They are famous for their sangria, so we had to come and try it. They sell it by the glass, or by the pitcher. They are situated up on top of a hill, and you drive through a lot of farm land to get to... More

The food here was wonderful, the view amazing. Situated high on a hill, looking over cove of blue Pacific waters, the view just can't be beat. We went here for lunch, the portions were so large it spoiled our dinner.
