We arrived in Manuel Antonio on a rainy and dark evening, a little bit uneasy after a long drive from San Jose. El Sol was the perfect starting off place, offering local food at good prices, music from a local musician, and a decent variety of Costa Rican beers. The atmosphere, and close location to most hotels, provided a great starting point to start a honeymoon.

After being in Manuel Antonio 6 months I finally decided to check out El Sol. I don't know why I didn't check it out before. I guess I just didn't want to walk up stairs :)

The food is top-notch and the casados are where it's at. The kitchen is an open concept design and the fish tank is a nice touch.

It is located above Super Joseth right across from the beach.

The setting is great overlooking the main road to manuel Antonio. But, the food was just average. I had a hamburger and it should have been a better grade of meat as advertised.

This restaurant is upstairs from the Super Joseth that is right on the corner of the main road and the road to the park. We sat at the granite counter overlooking the beach. I ordered a vegetarian casado, and it was delicious, especially washed down with a couple of Imperial lights.

Sit upstairs facing the boardwalk. Enjoy the beer specials. It's the best spot in MA to people watch along the boardwalk. Highly recommended.
