Agree with some previous posters that food is more Americanized and it might be a good or a bad thing depending on the person. I did like Cafe Azul more then top rated La Hacienda(self proclaimed to my believe) . Views were great.
On a negative note, the bill had more beers on it then I had.
Out of three food places we visited in Manuel Antonio, we liked this one the most.

We went to agua azul craving a hamburger after weeks of Costa Rican food. The huge burger did not disappoint. Nice views. Food and restaurant very Americanized in food and prices. Not bad if you are craving some American food in paradise!

Aqua Azul was excellent. We tried many of the guide book recommended restaraunts in Manuel Antonio during our Dec 2009 vacation, and all were good, but Aqua Azul served one of the best meals I've had in years.

Fantastic food. Sautéed calamari were one of the best I've tried anywhere. Outstanding view, service, everything. Went there twice. When I see La Hacienda listed as the #1 restaurant in Manuel Antonio, I just laugh. This place is FAR better, with a view to boot!
