Forget the falafel stand that is gaming the Trip Advisor review system - El Patio is the best place for your dinner. It's a coffee shop, breakfast and lunch place all day long, then at night the back garden comes to life, live music sets a tranquil mood, and first-rate service brings you everything you need. I ordered some terrific... More

The food was acceptable, but nothing special. We each had the fish special as our main, but it wasn't memorable so I can't even describe how it fell short. The service was decent enough and the dinner wasn't overly expensive. All in all, Meh. I'm guessing being a cafe their breakfast would likely be better.

The dinner was outstanding and the atomoshere in the back has a wonderful setting. Nice wine selection that compliments the food very well. A place you should surely check out.

Food was really good. The patio at the back of the restaurant was a beautiful setting. I was there with family including a 1-year-old and the waitress and waiters were very nice and accomodating.

Came with my mother and boyfriend and had a lovely meal here. The main of chicken was extremely tasty along with the special of the night which was bbq pork. We also had an avocado and chocolate mouse for dessert to share which was amazing!

Nice backyard setting and great food. We had the tuna which was exceptional. Apps and dessert were great too. The coffee was average which was unexpected

I was encouraged by a friend to try their ceviche ! Unbelievably delicious, mine was made with large chunks of tuna served in a large cocktail glass, with fresh julienne vegetables, cilantro, onions in a wonderful lime dressing. I have gone to other restaurants for ceviche, but none compare!! I have to return to taste and to take a picture... More

We have been in Manuel Antonio for 2 weeks and tried all the places according to TripAdvisor. That is the biggest disappointment! Worst service and food is absolute disappointment. Don't bother - better try the place across the street. Chocolate mousse was extremely salty on top of everything else
