Our group of 6 made the jaunt to Barba Rosa's for the sunset view while dining. This was a great decision. Barba Rosa's has friendly employees, really good food, good happy hour specials, and superb sunset views. Mix these 4 items together and they combine for a wonderful evening. Arrive early, enjoy the food and drinks, admire the sunset and experience Pura Vida

It was pretty hot and humid the night we were here and there wasn't much of a breeze if any at all. Like most of the restaurants we saw in Manuel Antonio, Barba Roja's is open air and so is quite subject to the weather. There were only a few choices on the menu plus a couple of specials, but everyone in our group of 7 found something to eat and everyone felt that their food was above average. So that was a real plus. The service was excellent (but this seems to be the norm in Manuel Antonio...we never experienced poor or unfriendly service anywhere we went--the local folks are all extremely nice, friendly and accommodating). Perhaps more of a breeze, or perhaps some strategically placed fans to keep the air moving would be helpful.

Barba Rojas has a chef from Hermosa Beach, CA. He's amazing. The menu has a lot of diversity. Good music and a popular spot for dining.

Good wait staff and the view over the ocean makes it especially nice for a sunset dinner. We weren't the only patrons taking lots of photos of each other bathed in the purple glow of the dying sun. Very romantic!
