Found this little sushi cafe in a back street! The most wonderful sushi I’ve eaten and i have eaten a LOT of sushi! When we arrived, we were the only two but within a half hour it was waiting lines! The staff were very friendly...and recommended The Boat! Soooo much food! Delicious fresh fish! Apparently this is not a hidden jewel but a La Fortuna favourite!More

The food was good. But there were four waiters, two tables with guests, and we had to waive like 5 minutes to ask for ice. The same happened when we asked for desserts and the check.

I feel really sorry for the owners of this place as it cannot carry on the way it is. The night we went, we were the only couple in the whole place. Zero atmosphere. We asked for the wine list and were told they only...sold it by glass - white or red. We both had the fish - really average. Definitely the worst meal we had in Costa Rica. So disappointing as it was given a great review in my guidebook.More

This restaurant was a bit disappointing. Was rated a top restaurant on TripAdvisor, but didn't live up to that rating for my wife and I on our recent visit. The menu is very limited and the beef dish was not available the night we dined...here. I had the grilled tuna and my wife had the mahi. Both meals were just OK. The vegetable was rather bland. Dessert menu was limited to just one item, which was again just OK.More

This restaurant should be called Krappy Krappy instead of Kapi Kapi. The service was awful. Only 3 tables in the restaurant that were filled and hard to get service and get the bill. The waiters seemed very lost. The food was tasteless. I had the...red snapper and the plate didn’t have the ingredients that were in the description from the menu. I would not recommend this restaurant. Very disappointed for a first timer in Costa Rica.More

Nichole, We do apologize for your experience at Kapi Kapi. Manuel Antonio is a tourist town and believe me we wish it was full all the time. There are lots of options here in Manuel Antonio and a lot of the other restaurants experience the...More

What a great restaurant! Food was fresh and of extremely high quality. Good selection, reasonably priced and the restaurant is lovely. Nice atmosphere and great service. Amazing Sangria! Good wine selection. Overall one of the best we found in CR. Thank you!

Had a lovely meal here. Quiet setting with beautiful trees. Food amazing. Ceviche delightful. Tuna great. Mahi mahi very fresh with the best coconut rice. Owner very cordial and since his wine order hadn’t arrived let us bring our own. Great evening

Luckily we found this oasis during our 3 nights stay at the hotel Makanda-by-the-sea. Our hotel restaurant was expensive with disco music - what a difference to Kapi Kapi. Excellent food and service, balanced ratio price-quality, soft music. After having found this place we did...not eat elsewhere.More

I loved this place. The terrace was very cozy with all the lights and the food was amazing. Our tuna was cooked to perfection even though we had different requests. The waiter told us, that several parrots (Macaws) visit the tree outside the restaurant two...times during the day. I therefore wish we had visited the restauration earlier and had a chance to see the beautiful birds.More

I'd be surprised if so. It's Costa Rica, so you're lucky if they have a telephone at all.
