Quepos-Manuel Antonio has become one of our favourite places in Costa Rica. Lots of great restaurants, shopping and natural beauty and definitely designed for relaxation. SALT is one of the highlights on the dining scene with its distinctive exterior signage, dark, natural wood floors and...More

We had dinner at Salt at the beginning of our stay in MA and when we arrived, there was hardly anybody there (which we later discovered was the case all over MA that first week in December) so we were able to sit at a...More

This charming restaurant is open to the jungle on two sides, affording beautiful views and cool breezes, even at midday. We ate several meals there, not just because of the 10% discount for people staying at our hotel (Plaza Yara). Most of the portions were...More

I appreciate that Salt is one of the few restaurants in the area actually trying to serve fine cuisine. After a week in CR, we were a little tired of comical tipica and Casadas, so Salt was a welcome change of pace. Did it totally...More

Good food, friendly staff and open air to the rainforest. Several monkeys joined us during lunch which made this a really amazing experience.

Wow, this place is incredible. Open air and facing the jungle with clever lights casting upon the lush vegetation. We had the best shrimp cocktail ever (the mango adds a great twist!) and the fish special (mahi mahi). I try the mahi mahi everywhere I...More

This is a new restaurant, and it shows. The chef is American and the menu is interesting. The space is beautiful. However, it definitely has some kinks to work out. First, the prices are eyebrow raising. This is Costa Rica, not New York city. My...More

SALT is a true oasis in the jungle. On the way to the National Park, look for the bright black and orange sign on the left hand side - step in and be transported into the rain forest! One of Manuel Antonio's only true "gringo" style restaurants with seafood and Italian specialties inspired by the owner's Brooklyn heritage, where he grew up eating and working in some of NYC's finest restaurants.The setting is the jungle - the service is upscale; but the vibe and the prices are purely down to earth. Start with an appetizer or salad (starting from $9.00) and enjoy a full menu with specialties from the sea and some comfortable pasta dishes - our highest priced entree is only $17.00 - a delectable Ahi Tuna. Like Music? Check us out between 3 and 6 PM every day for Happy Hour where a Jimmy Buffet vibe takes over the airwaves or come in for a candle lit dinner where a new age vibe makes the jungle come alive!
