We looked for something for everyone, and found it here. Sushi, pasta, meat, fish. We all had something different to eat and it was very good including desert and drinks. Totally recommended

We came here for happy hour drinks and then for dinner on our final night in Costa Rica. Good beer, great cocktails and yummy food in a spectacular setting, and with very entertaining service from the three brothers who own the place, and from their staff. Have some calamares with your happy hour drinks, then try the huge slab of... More

We visited during rainy season, walking over from the Costa Verde Hotel. Nice people, and really nice food, especially the desserts (they have this chocolate salami thing that's out of this world.) The whole staff was there despite the slow night, allowing my wife to get sushi. The geckos zipped about on the ceiling, making for a great floor (ceiling?)... More

We came up there before the sunset and we could admire it from the terrass together with a nice cocktail. We were really well received by the... More

Someone from our hotel recommended this place. I had no idea it would turn out to be two of the best restaurant experiences I've had in my life. And I say two because we had to go there twice during our short visit in Quepos. I was blown away by everything that I had from their menu, such as tuna,... More

This was our best meal we had well visiting Manuel Antonio. The menu was great, lots to choose from. Service was outstanding. Great view of sunset over the Pacific. Wildlife everywhere including squirrel monkeys, holler monkeys and sloths. The owners have dogs, which my boys just loved. So fun getting to interact with them. Would definitely have gone again, we... More
