Food was really good, especially the camerones dish. The pina coladas are really good - I believe they're made with fresh fruit - best ones we had in Costa Rica. Staff were really nice.

This place was a nice place to have a relaxing lunch in Manuel Antonio. Food was pretty good and we were lucky enough to see a sloth from our table. I would recommend

Amazing entrées, and an amazing staff. Recommend checking this place out for lunch or dinner. Very small place , but if there's a wait it's worth it.

We stumbled upon this restaurant which was near our hotel and were so happy we did. The food was fantastic. We all had something different - my husband has the snapper, I had the tuna, my oldest daughter had a chicken wrap and my youngest a burger. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. We all had to taste the burger as... More
