Always worth a visit here for the freshest seafood dishes. They offer surf and turf and we always start out with their Margaritas. Whether at the bar or in the dining room service is always Terrific

My husband and I ate here our first night in Costa Rica and it was absolutely amazing. The seafood was so fresh and seasoned to perfection. It was an awesome, laid back environment we'd visit again.

Great food and scenery. We had beef tenderloin with shrimp. Big shrimp. Bigger than the Gulf shrimp and nachos

Nice little place with a beautiful view that was recommended by a local and it was across the street from our hotel. We were a group of 11 people and the wait to get dinner was over an hour and the place was empty when we got there. They have happy hour between 5 pm and 11 pm with two... More

We happened upon this place on a recommendation. It didn't disappoint. There weren't too many people when we were seated but by the time we ordered the place filled up! The seafood platter for 2 was amazing! Lobster tails, jumbo shrimp, while red snapper...perfect cooked and delicious. It was also happy hour and the drinks were refreshing.

We went to Mar Luna the first night we arrived in Manuel and it was absolutely fantastic!! The setting of the restaurant is gorgeous, and we caught amazing views of the sunset. The food was also some of the best I've had here. I had grilled chicken with rice and beans and it compares to nothing I've had anywhere else.... More

Excellent whole grilled red snapper. Family hoovered up the nachos. Drinks were tasty but a bit weak. Casual place that offers good value in this area.

We came here for a late lunch and we had very quick and friendly service. Excellent drink specials on cocktails that were a generous size. We were brought chips and salsa while we waited for our food (excellent by the way) and our entrees were great! This restaurant has excellent views and fair prices for the large portions you get.

Simple preparations, excellent sauces, the freshest ingredients make this place a standout in standouts around the world. The creamy seafood soup is an art in soup. The seafoods and sauces just make you want to stay and eat till you can't eat anymore then return for the next meal. Prices are reasonable and they have a happy hour daily. My... More
