Parking lot is small but we took taxis so no problem. Ambience pretty typical for this area: no walls, open to the world, trophy fish on display, lighting low but not too dark to see, soft local music - kind of like eating in a...More

A great little roadside restaurant with, again, a fabulous view. Their tuna was wonderful and the spices used added to the flavor. Their french fries are really good and also their nachos were surprisingly tasty!

We had an awesome dinner with amazing local seafood. The tuna was done perfectly. Make sure that you try the fish ceviche and the sushimi tuna appetizers. The seafood platter was more than enough for two. Three could share this plate and be very satisfied.

This restaurant is right on the road to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Relatively small in size but the food coming out of that kitchen is awesome. I kept mostly to the fish dishes. Fried snapper, Mahi mahi and Tuna with their indescribable garlic sauce.

We caught some Mahi and Tuna and the owner was glad to cook it up for us. We started with sushi then fried Mahi fish fingers and then perfectly cooked Mahi and Tuna steaks. Honestly! Best meal we had in Costa Rica

We recently ate at this local gem after several locals recommended it to us. We weren't disappointed. It's a small primarily seafood restaurant that sits atop the mountain and has wonderful views. While it was dark by the time we arrived for our late dinner,...More

We thought the food was delicious. As everywhere in Costa Rica, seafood is plentiful. If you're looking for vegan (no seafood), you can always just order rice, beans and plantains. This goes for most restaurants in CR.
