Great food, service and music. This is an upscale dining experience, with live music and great food. I had mussels for appetizer and Grouper baked in a banana leaf...yum yum! Wife had a salad and tequila lime chicken pasta which she enjoyed very much. I love chocolate lava cake so I waited the 20 mins (noted in the menu) and was not disappointed. Bill was a little over a hundred bucks with one alcohol beverage but that seemed appropriate to us due to the upscale feel. If your looking for family oriented dining or an "cheaper" meal , this probably isn't for you. Otherwise I would definitely recommend it!

We went to La Luna for dinner with a corporate group of 12 peple. The food was excellent, nice live music and a very, very efficient and friendly service. Joshua, our server for that night, was always ready to quickly address our needs. I ordered a caipirinha which was good but not perfect. He came and asked me how I wanted and prepared one himself which was Perfect!
It was dark so we could not appreciate the view but the place is cozy and we had a wonderful evening.

our last meal in manuel antonio was at La Luna and we were so glad because it was definitely special. the service was excellent - joshua was a great waiter! they even brought the chefs out with the courses and introduced us which I've never seen before and we enjoy fine dining a lot. our plates always hit the table at the same time. we had the sangria which was great! being driven up to the restaurant in a golf cart was also a nice touch. i thought the portions were perfect (i couldn't finish my meal and left very full) and it was very reasonably priced for the quality.

I loved this place! Service was great ! I didn't not eat there but enjoyed drinks and view ...I almost cried at how incredible the view was. I'm a big sunset fan. The whole setting was amazing!

We truly do have the best sunset views in all of Manuel Antonio.

Sitting atop of Gaia Mountain, our La Luna Restaurant shows views of the Pacific Ocean on one side and the huge mountain ridges on the other.

Cocktails are discounted for happy hour and we serve the best tapas in the area.
