We ordered the fresh tuna dinner. Ordered seared. It came Seared!! EXCELLENT!! French fries were very nicely crisp and not greasy, very tasty salad. My husband ordered the Whole Fish, it was fried but with a very light powdering type batter, very, very good. I...believe it was Red Snapper. Delicious. Wait service was efficient and the only delay was in getting to get the bill. Not buried out of there. We sat upstairs, which was nice, as it was a Friday night and the street level was busy. Definitely go!More

Along side with Baldi’s Fresh Restaurant, Marlin is also very good. Steve and the rest of the employees are great!

Perfect location, across from beach. A platter of pescador frito and a bottle of crisp white Chilean wine made for a delightful lunch. They also serve a whole snapper, salads and appetizers. After lunch take a walk by the vendors and bargain for some nice...homemade wooden carvings.More

A friendly restaurant with average food and prices. The menu is mainly fresh fish. I found the calamari bit chewy

We had lunch at Marlin's since it was part of our Manuel Antonio excursion package. We absolutely loved the food: it was the best traditional costarican meal we had of our whole trip. Delicious and fresh! Great view of the beach from the terrace. Great...service! I recommend!More

Four 4 days out of 6 I brought my mother here for lunch, we both loved the place. Best restaurant along the beach as it shows as it's the busiest. 2 for 1 on cocktails too until I don't know when but always at midday...anyway. Love this place.More
