Although we didn't go for the sunset which the place is clearly designed for we lunched there and enjoyed a very good tasting meal and lovely view of the Pacific. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff. Bit pricey.

It's a little hard to find so watch out for the watersport shop with the dingy's in the windows and kayaks stacked up outside. The road is across. You can walk but it's 1 km up the hill. We had the sangria (not my favorite, try it before you get the pitcher) and the ceviche (excellent) as well as the... More

I have been to Ronny's place once before. The views are AMAZING, go at sunset! We happened to get a rainstorm the evening we went and they didn't have electricity. They had candles on the table which made it really quaint and pretty. We didn't get the great views but the food was excellent and the service was great. We... More

We enjoyed our meal due to the lively atmosphere. Good margaritas. Food was adequate -- underseasoned -- but well cooked and large portions.

We went here for lunch and the location has a great view but the food was overpriced and small portioned and the margaritas were rough to get down. Wouldn't recommend the Bloody Mary either. You're basically paying for the view.

The food was very fresh. The staff were lively especially every time a banana flambe was ordered where they would turn out the lights and start dancing!

On our Honeymoon one of the locals told us "not to miss Ronny's Place." We were a little confused by the long driveway but the place ended up being a complete gem! Ronny himself came and greeted us and was a fantastic host. The Sangria is aboslutely excellent and we really enjoyed the food... Grilled skewers with Tropical fruit +... More

To be honest not much to review here. The service was fine and the food was reasonable. The view was great (we sat outside to see the sunset) although after dark you really couldn't see what you were eating despite the candle. I suggest moving inside after dark.

Off the beaten track, this restaurant offers good food at reasonable prices. Well worth visiting for an evening meal.

This tucked away gem had great sunset views, great staff, great drinks & local cuisine. It's a must try in the Quepos / Manuel Antonio area.
