Fresh seafood artfully presented. Very nice setting with live music. Romantic place with a chef who pays attention to details. We started off with white sangria at happy hour 2-for-1 and the shrimp cocktail. We each had the catch of the day, one prepared blackened and one with jalapeño cream sauce served on an arrangement of fresh grilled veggies. Everything... More

Our family had a wonderful evening in this restaurant near Manuel Antonio. Service was impeccable: Maykol was always kind and attentive to our requests. The party favorite was the tartar de pulpo: fresh and delicious. The appetizers were good and we also tried a couple of the Duos: they were interesting. It was a lovely evening.

I can’t agree more that the Octopus tartar is tops, and complements a menu that our chef enjoys creating and improving all the time. Our commitment to Costa Rican gastronomy assures that we provide a menu including fresh natural ingredients and recipes that highlight the heritage of Costa Rican producers who we support.

I was pleasantly surprised by our dinner at Como Que Sí. I knew the food would be good but it was even better. The food was expertly prepared, the sauces delicious and the service prompt and sincere. I would highly recommend this restaurant with or without the view (I.e., eating after sundown) and look forward to returning there soon myself.
