“Location location location........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

Perfect location on second floor facing the ocean, with stools and tables. This place provided the best Casado meal while in that area. We returned the following day to order the same exact meal!
And there wings are good too. Owner is on location and a real soccer fan.

“Delicious food and great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

They had the most amazing food. That is the only way to put it. I got chicken in mushroom sauce. Perfectly cooked veggies. The only catch was that there was white rice and I prefer brown. Also had a great ocean view.

“Great Food Overlooking Manuel Antonio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

El Sol was recommend by our hotel so we gave it try. The price was reasonable but not cheap. We were happy to have something other than the typical Costa Rican "casado" for a change and we had shrimp quesadilla and fish tacos. The lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados were very fresh and tasty and the portions were generous. The service was quick and very friendly.

This restaurant is on the second floor over a little super and it looks over the main drag (such as it is) of Manuel Antonio and out to the beach.

“A place tourists love”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

I'm from Costa Rica, so to me this place was just OK and a bit overpriced, but being used to hang around with tourists, this is a place they'll love! But make no mistake, food was good, and prices were within what you'll find around, it's just overpriced if you're a tico ;)
We went there in the night, but I imagine that the view on the sunset is just amazing!
