“Great outdoor dining experience”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

When vacationing in Manuel Antonio we were driving along the main road and saw a large yellow sign which said "Ronnie's Restaurant and Dining" and pointed down a dirt road. After being in the area for 3 days now, we know that all dirt roads lead to good things in Manuel Antonio.

Upon arrival to Ronnie's, the restaurant is outdoors under a cabana style roof high on the cliffs in the rainforest overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Being their in the green season means a lot of rain, and our day was no different.

Thinking that we were only going to stay for a quick ceviche and a glass of wine, our mood soon changed as our waiter was friendly,and was soon giving us complimentary shots of exotic fruit infused with alcohol. We are not talking about an umbrella drink, but fruit picked from the trees growing next to the restaurant.

Food was amazing as we dined on chips, guacamole, and of course ceviche.

We definitely would go back to Ronnie's again when we visit Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica again in the future.

“Tasty snapper and yummy pina colados”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Loved the snapper- very fresh. Down a long dirt road. You can walk it during the day, but should probably take a cab during the night. Drinks were great and came in various novelty glasses ( like half a pineapple).

“Dinner with a view”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Our party was with 4 people. We had a chance to try much of what was on the menu. My son wanted Chimi Churi sauce ribeye steak and they were out of it. We all enjoyed our meals. It was dark early in September for dinner so go early to see the spectacular views. It rained while we were there and it didn't matter. Their sangria is very good! Try it. We shared a pitcher. I had a lobster dinner was deliousus. One of my sons had the grouper and enjoyed it. Pricey place though.....
