Lovely location overlooking the ocean. Food was delicious. Seemed to be a good variety on the menu. friendly staff with quick service. Food was quite good value for what it was and the portions were generous.
Really nice atmosphere. Nice layout and nice furnishings.

No reservation after sunset. 20 minute wait at the bar, enjoying a cold Imperial. Watching the Chef was entertainment enough. He and assistants know how to work a kitchen. Calamari was a good choice to share. Macadamia and coconut encrusted mahi-mahi as well as cornmeal encrusted snapper with mustard aioli were both good. The biggest surprise was the mashed plantains with their unique taste. All good! Be prepared for large portions.

We ate here twice during our stay in Manuel Antonio and really enjoyed it. Don't miss the calamari, it's delicious and why we went back a second time. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The owner happened to be there both nights and she actually remembered us the second night - she was interested in ensuring we had a good experience and enjoyed the food. We did (the drinks too - mojito was very good!0 and recommend it as a place to stop if you are in the area. The prices were also reasonable. And the view is great - overlooks the ocean.

This place caught our eye on walks between the store and hotel so our group decided to give it a try. The staff and food were both excellent and our only wish is we dined a little earlier to take advantage of the ocean view before dark.

Awesome view, very nice people, and good food. Pretty good combination! Not a whole lot of seating up there so you need to get there 30-45 minutes before sunset to get a spot
