We visited with a large group of friends and the experience was subpar. The menu sounded ok but when the dishes came out we were all disappointed. The setting is beautiful, though...

This is one of the better places for a meal in this area. The menu is limited and sometimes an item it not available. However the food is well prepared and the service is efficient (at least when I was there in a slow night). Drinks were well made. As others noted the seafood cigar is a very tasty item.... More

We had a very large group and prepared the staff by letting them know what we were ordering. My children were served 1/2 of what I ordered for them. My table was served dessert when another table in my group had just had their order's taken. It was raining and the roof was leaking. Some in our party did not... More

The decor is very old and bad maintained. The food is between good and medium, the decoration of the plates is American style. The waiters were nice. We don't think we will go back but we do not regreat that we have been there.

Visited Kapi Kapi several years ago, and their Mahi Mahi dish I had there, remains the best thing I have ever eaten in my 41 years on this earth, to this day. I have considered travelling to Costa Rica so I can visit again, and in fact I should be in the area within next few months. It is not... More

Kapi Kapi Restaurant is Manuel Antonio's choice for fine dining. Our Asian-influenced seafood, succulent steaks, and original dessert menu keep locals and tourists coming back again and again. Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi sound delicious? How about sugar cane skewered prawns with a tamarind,coconut, and rum glaze? Our fresh peppercorn-seared ahi tuna is to die for! Start with seafood cigars, our most popular appetizer and finish with the hot chocolate souffle! We are open daily 4pm-10pm on the main road to the park across from Pacific Colonial Condos and Tulemar resort.
