Omg, this place is a little gem in the middle of Manuel Antonio. We are so glad we’ve discovered it. We came every day and tried pretty much everything from The menu starting from different types of coffee, lunch, dinner and amazing cocktails. Can’t say...enough about delicious food they serve. Adrienne, the owner, is such a sweetheart and your story is inspiring. I wish we had a chance to try your flan but I guess there is always a next time. 😉More

I recommend this quaint restaurant! Someone recommended this restaurant and while it does not look fancy, you must trust that it’s good. The appetizers are in my opinion regular size meals. We ordered the poke mango appetizer, and the quinoa black bean tacos. Super good!

We ate there once for dinner and three times for breakfast in our 1 week. We LOVED it. Especially the smoothies and El Tipo breakfast, crepes, and french toast.

Recent visit for dinner. Absolutely do not pass by an opportunity to enjoy this excellent dining experience. The ambiance is a Caribbean vibe even though it is on the pacific side. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. No issues for English speakers. Our food...came out super fast. Way beyond what I expected. The portions were beyond ample. The jerk chicken is absolutely perfect. There is just enough heat to let the flavors erupt. FANTASTIC. Bathrooms were clean and well serviced. All in all one of the best dining experiences in Antonio Manuel or anywhere for that matter.More

This places food seemed better in the pictures than when I actually had it. We went because we liked the idea of a healthy salad place. It was okay. We liked it better than most of the other places we went for Dinner in Manuel...Antonio, but that's not a huge compliment compared to cities like Uvita or La Fortuna. We had one of their salads which had a bunch of Mango on it that was pretty good. Our main meals were less remarkable. The restaurant did have pretty cool atmosphere though and we liked the vibe better than the actual food. Service was fairly slow, but that was probably likely due to Covid causing it hard for them to anticipate how much business they would have on any given night.More

We had lunch on the back patio and got a special treat : capuchin monkeys jumping from tree to tree. The food was incredible!!! We tried cheviche from six places in Costa Rica and this was hands down the best. Service was great. Highly recommend.

We stopped in for breakfast twice and to pick up coffee a few times. Always great food, staff friendly and love all the coffee choices. They also have a small souvenir shop that has a nice selection of items. One of my favorite spots in...Manuel Antonio.More
