“Perfect Sunset”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was the first restaurant we ate at in Manuel Antonio. We arrived early and barely any people were there, so we had our pick of tables. And the one we did sit at, had such a perfect view of the sunset that it took me forever just to eat the food!
The menu we received was very limited, I am not sure if it was the time we were there...or perhaps you had to ask for the specials. Our food was quite good and I have no compaints. I just wish we would have seen the bigger menu that was advertised and discussed on line.

“Great mahi mahi”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Came here last night with my two girlfriends, had really good daiquiris to drink! The service was fast and the food was delicious. I hope to come back in the day and check out the sunsets next time. I really enjoyed the live band as well. Will be back next time I visit, I will try the BBQ:-)

“Awesome food, service and sunsets”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Generous portions, delicious home cooked meals, fresh sushi and cold beer served by friendly staff who remembered our names and sitting outside up on a mountain overlooking those types of sunsets you'll never ever forget. And reasonable prices too. If I lived it Manuel Antonio, I'd be a regular!
