Right in front of the beach, with a pleasant view of the ocean, have a lunch or dinner. Try the CASADO with fish, a Costarrican style of full meal. Have fun in Pavones

A good restaurant so close to the beach. Service was a little bit slow, for that the very good marks, and not excellent. In Pavones, there are few good restaurants, so it is good to know there is one that is reliable. A good mix of foods to choose from, and appetizers as well. We had a lovely fresh fruit drink of Maracuya (passion fruit) that was so wonderful. They also have happy hour for those that like their drinks. Nice place to take in beach activity.

We sought refuge from the rain in La Manta, and I am so glad we did! Right on the beach, super hip, and the food was awesome! We had the fish tacos and mango margaritas, and they were insane! Wish we had made it back for the weekly Saturday-night dance party.... The owner (Eric?) was great conversation and helped orient us to the CR scene. A MUST visit if you are in the Pavones area!
