Stopped in for dessert on the way to Manuel Antonio.. I had the coconut flan while everyone else opted for the chocolate cake. The dish was excellent and the waiter indicated that it was made fresh on site. While it was raining when we were there, the view still made it worthwhile. The airplane might be the drawing card for some, but for me it was the dessert. The prices were very reasonable, under 8 colones for four.

Goofy Canadian owner had this idea to bring in airplane fuselages and stick them in the side of the mountain. So out of place, really ruins the vibe of the rest of the very nice hotel property

We were a family of 9 with 3 kids. We sat the kids while the next table was being cleaned. Very slow service. The restaurant was at maybe 15% with around 7 servers. No one came to offer water or menus. We all speak perfect spanish. So communication was not an issue. I saw that gorgeous view from plenty of places with out the poor service and there 23% tax.
We ended up leaving and spent our money elsewhere.

Incredible view and good service. The food was delicious. I had a sea food stew that was very tastful. The waiter told me that is a very traditional dish of the Caribbean region. It was delicious! I seriously recommend it.

Incredible views, especially at sunset. Food is ok, stick with the appetizers. Great story behind the plane.
