“Good Food, Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This place is relatively far from the Main drag, so if you don't know it is where it is, you are likley going to miss it. I ate here with a large group. And even on a rainy evening, we were able to enjoy the comfortable temperature, thanks to the open air dining. I enjoyed the ceviche and fish that was served here. Our good ordered countless things from the menu and everyone enjoyed their meal. The staff was also very attentive and friendly. Great meal in Costa Rics!

“Good Food - Great Ambiance”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

We stopped here after visiting Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica. There were 16 of us and they treated us like royalty. The setting is beautiful and the servers were very attentive. The food was good and I liked the decor.

I'm not sure what this experience would have been like had we not called ahead - but they sure did a great job for us!!

“Nice view, average food”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We decided to try this place after a recommendation from one of our tour guides. It is located in a secluded area, they offer great views. We tried the shrimp tacos which were great but didn't enjoy the lobster and chewy steak. Drinks were good. They had a cat in the restaurant that would actually jump on our table while we were eating. The staff eventually escorted it out of the restaurant but this actually didn't bother us. The waiter was friendly and polite.

Dear Gis0610,
Thank you for your review.
We're sorry that you did not like the lobster and the steak.
Being located next to a port town, we always make sure that our seafood is cooked and served fresh.
About our meat and poultry, we assure you that we provide the best you can find on the local market. Sorry for the cat; we tried different measures, to insure it will not bother our clients, but sometimes it doesn't work. However, the cats helps us (and does a great job), by keeping out other – unwanted – creatures.

Thank you again,
Ronny's Place's Staff

“Off the beaten track”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Down a bumpy dirt road, and definitely not glamorous, but a nice place to get a more local experience. Open air, lots of seating. The sangria is pretty darn good. Food is good, but nothing spectacular - had the seafood platter for two, which was good. Others in our group also had the fajitas (average). Service is ok. Have never made it here before dark, so can't vouch for the sunset, but I am guessing it is wonderful, based on the location.

Dear TonkaC,
Thank you for taking some time to write this review.
Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about the road.
We are glad that you enjoyed our signature drink, La Sangría, and your seafood platter. The Fajitas are cooked Costa Rican style, with local spices, and maybe that is why they didn't meet your expectations, as Mexican Fajitas are a lot more spicy.
We sincerely hope that the next time you'll make it before dark, so you can observe the best sunset in Costa Rica!!

Saludos
