I love the restaurant, especially the service. Waking every morning to freshly made empanadas, natural juices and freshly cut fruits is priceless! the word NO doesn't exist in this place.

Indeed....the word NO in fact does not exist at Gaia Hotel & Reserve nor our restaurant La Luna.

We have the best staff in all of the Manuel Antonio and Quepos area and we are proud of them. Their purpose in life is to spoil our guests and it is evident both in the hotel and restaurant alike.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful experience here on this TripAdvisor forum.

Absolutely a must in Manuel Antonio! We stayed in Manuel Antonio for 3 nights and went 2 times to La Luna! On the way by golf car from the reception downstairs we saw a lot of monkeys playing on the trees. From 5 to 6 pm, there is a Happy hpur to get 2 drinks for 1 (cca 8 USD) you can enjoy both - nice tapas and sunset :-) We sit down in the restaurant and I had a nice plaintain puree with fish packed into banana leave - I highly recommend to take it! I think its name was papillote or something like that. We also tried papaya soup and a seafood plate for 2 - It was nice but a bit small for 2 hungry guys :-).

La Luna Restaurant at Gaia Hotel & Reserve is indeed a gourmet experience. Nothing short of the best food in Manuel Antonio.

Thank you for coming twice in your visit.

We believe our service is the very best in the local area and it's truly a fun time with visitors and locals alike for our tapas time which starts at 4PM and live music beginning at 5PM.
With our 2x1 drinks also starting at 5 PM.......It's a lively place for all to gather.
Thank you for your visits with us and welcome back the next time you are in Manuel Antonio.

We went for pre dinner drinks and tapas and they were outstanding. The setting is gorgeous with a live duo playing music in the background. Drinks were 2:1 happy hour and tapas were cheap ($4) and delicious. It is a fun ride to get there up a hill by golf cart, and the setting is gorgeous. You can see for miles and miles. Highly recommend for drinks and tapas.

Coming from New York City, we are humbled by our recent guests comments.

We are indeed one of the highest points in Manuel Antonio which affords us spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, far away mountains and our precious rain forest.

Tapas is always a fun time at Gaia with our live music and fabulous drinks and tapas. This all makes for a magical experience.

Thank you for your very kind comments and taking the time to post on this TripAdvisor forum.

We were staying at Gaia Hotel so we went to the restaurant for Happy Hour, dinner and breakfast the next morning. It was all delicious! The tapas for Happy Hour were wonderful and inexpensive. Our dinner was great - I recommend ordering the tuna. Theres also live music at night, so the ambiance is very nice. Breakfast was spectacular as well. Our breakfast was included and I don't think I ever had such a wonderful breakfast included in any other hotel. We'll definitely return to this restaurant when we're ion the area.

Thanking our recent guests from San Jose, Costa Rica.
We are thrilled you enjoyed all of the meals you took at Gaia including our well acclaimed sunset tapas with live music every night. Our 2 for one cocktail list is quite famous.
Our complete menu breakfast is part of our guests room rate and we are always open to the general public for them to enjoy also.
