This was a great first restaurant on our trip to Manuel Antonio. We arrived late and they were out of several options, but we loved the ceviche, chicken fajitas, mahi filet were delicious! The two for one drinks were an added bonus. Our waiter was a little snarky but overall a great experience.

We gathered with about 6 girls to watch Germany v. Italy place a soccer match. Food selections not bad and pretty much what you will find in most locations. Cold beer and wonderful set view are the normal fav hangout for locals. Today was a little overcast and service a little slower than usual but this is classic Costa Rica.... More

Friendly servers, always a smile. Yummy food! Beautiful view and a lovely cat that would swing over and almost smile while showing off her beautiful home.

We walked here from Tulemar for Happy Hour, with the possibility of staying for dinner. The place was pretty empty at the time, but we found service somewhat inattentive. We ordered sangria and fajitas to share. The sangria was really “thick” - a lot of muddled berries in it. The fajitas were fine. Nothing to write home about in either... More

This might be a nice place to stop by for a drink because of the view. The food, however, was gross. I ordered the chimichanga, which was actually not fried but instead a cold tortilla encasing a lukewarm flavorless canned chicken/cheese mixture. There might have been rice too but I couldn't tell as it was so bland. And it was... More

Great spot to hang out with locals during the week, perfect spot for viewing sunsets, taking light meals or snacks, and then Sunday evening, there usually is a large gathering of partiers for sunset happy hour with a gay festive background and music!

The location of this restaurant offers a great ocean view and delicious cuisine. Don't be scared off by the presence of the spider monkeys in the dining area. They really do not bother anyone, but supply an amusing sideshow for the diners.
