“Best Meal in Costa Rica”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We were in Costa Rica for a little over a week and ate out for lunch and dinner throughout the trip. Eight of us went to dinner at the Cafe Agua Azul and we all thought this restaurant had the best food of the trip.

I had the Coconut Crusted Fish and a few others had the Panko Crusted Tuna. They were delicious. And their drinks were good and strong. I admit that it was not inexpensive but it did seem to be on par with most of the nicer restaurants in Manuel Antonio. Everything in that area is expensive.

For a "bonus", while we were waiting for our table, we sat at the bar overlooking the cooking area and had a great time talking with and being entertained by the cook and support crew. Everyone at the place was very friendly - that part made Agua Azul very special.

“Delicious food and amazing view”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Nice family restaurant with ample menu variety. Get there early to get a good table with a view. It can get busy late nights.

“One of the best views in Manuel Antonios”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

This is without a doubt one of the best views in Manuel Antonios, and while the food may be a bit of a splurge by Costa Rican standards, it was delicious and well worth the extra money spent. Additionally their drinks are made-to-order and hit the spot after a busy adventure day, especially with their attentive waiters, whose service ensures that you'll never have an empty glass in your hand (unless you want one!). Try the local guaro sour. The American owner is kind, bilingual, and has a habit of making conversation with guests, making this place feel like home. Be sure to stop by when you're in the area, even if it's just for drinks and appetizers, but be warned.... you'll probably want to stay for a meal after hearing and smelling their daily specials.
