“Best drinks in town”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

First off the view at sunset was awesome, but that's pretty standard anywhere in Manuel Antonio. The seating in the restaurant is open so you can enjoy the view and the breeze.The drinks were probably the highlight of the evening. The sangria is as good as they say and they have fruity mixed drinks served in coconuts and pineapples which is just what you want on a tropical vacation. We had the seafood pasta and the surf and turf. Tasty but a little pricey. The service is a little slow but friendly and it just gives you more time to enjoy the view and sip on your pina colada. Really wish I would have known about the flaming dessert, guess that will be for next time.

“A fun night at Ronny's Place!”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We are on our honeymoon in Costa Rica, and last night we ate at Ronny's Place. It was recommended to us by our hotel, and additionally, when I pointed it out to my husband when we drove by earlier in the week, our cab drive piped up that it had great food and a great view. After our dinner last night, we agree! We arrived too late to see the sunset, but with its view over the water, we can tell it would be fabulous. The food was great, a good deal ( especially compared to some of the other places around here), and above all, the people were so nice. Ronny, the owner, spent lots of time at our table- what a delight he is! He even brought over a fun drink for us in a coconut as a surprise for our honeymoon. We loved our beautiful, delicious evening at Ronny's Place!

“A good choice”
Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

Had the Mi Lugar chicken brochette... Very nice with a fresh pineapple salsa. Sangria was very good as well. They don't list fruit on the menu, but they should, as it's a nice option for the kids or as a side. Prices were a bit higher than I'd expect, but I'm quick to point out that EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE in ths area is priced above expectations. Not Ronnie's fault the prices are kinda high, they're just being competitive.

Dear Craiginsd,
Thank you for taking some time to write a review on our place.
We will definitively see what we can do about the fruits, or what to do to make parents and kids feel more comfortable with our menu.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Saludos y Hasta Pronto!!!!!!!

“Loved it”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Best hole in the wall restaurant in Manuel Antonio. The meat and seafood it great, along with the worlds best sangria (not a joke, its the best). Get the flaming show desert and watch the waiters pour fire on the floor and the desert. AMAZING!

“Great view & Service, Average food”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

If you want authentic Tico food as opposed to high priced tourist restaurants this is a good place to go. It's off the main road a bit but worth the hike to get to. It has a great view so it's a perfect place for sunset cocktails, but we thought the food was just average. Friends and I were there in February after a fishing tournament because we heard so much about it but the sea food was average at best.
