This place looks like a bar joint, but the food is a grade up from that. The special smoked pork loin was the best dish I had in CR, and I hear the ribs are very good too. All in all we all four liked our dishes here and the service and entertainment (guitar player/singer) was very good. We recommend this place. It will be better than you expect.

We stopped by this restaurant on our first night in Manuel Antonio. It was a very short walk from our Hotel, Mango Moon. The food was amazing. Definitely one of our favorite meals during our trip. We had the burger, ribs, nachos, quesadilla, and salad. Every single person in our party was very happy with their food. To top it off they had a beautiful sunset view and live music!

Barba Roja offers great burgers and fresh seafood. We also enjoyed several dishes of sushi. From all indications, Barba Roja offers the best sushi in the MA area. The service was very quick and friendly. We will definitely be going back soon.

The food, price and huge burgers are great, including service. Worth the visit, but make sure you have an appetite.

Barba Roja was my favorite restaurant that we visited in the Manuel Antonio area. The food and live music were great and the service was fantastic. The servers were very friendly and remembered us when we returned a second evening during the week. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
