This restaurant was in walking distance to our hotel and we are so lucky for that! The view is amazing and the staff was so accommodating and friendly. Everyone working was happy to help and genuinely seemed like they enjoyed their jobs. The food and drinks were fabulous! All in all highly recommend this place.

The title says it all. Was recommended by a friend and local. She highly recommended the plantain appetizer but I forgot which one it was and ordered the tuna margarita, coconut cinnamon crusted mahi mahi on rice and the fresh garden salad. All delicious, all good portions and with a great view of the ocean. Definitely worth seeing during sunset!

Along with the great view of the ocean, the food and service is top notch. They also make their own green hot sauce thats flavorful and mildly hot. They also sell it in a bottle which we bought 2 of them to take home. Yum!

If you are in the Manuel Antonio area you must go to this restaurant. Excellent food. Great variety. The nicest people. Orlando, Diego and the team are fantastic hosts. Went there 3 of the 5 nights I was in town only missed 2 because they were closed Wednesday and didn't discover them the first night. Can't wait to go back!
