“Amazing view and fabulous desserts!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

A little off the beaten path, but the view is amazing! Best desserts in town! Restaurant is small but worth seeking out!

“Delightful Cafe with a Killer View”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

A delightful cafe located on a side street next to Hotel LaMariposa. They offer fresh food, pastries and incredible coffee. The staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The only negatives are that it is cash only and the menu is limited. But stop by; you will not be disappointed.

“It is a shame when a place doesn't know how to treat a customer”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

I come very often to the Manuel Antonio area and this place was recommended by a good friend, since I wanted to try a new place out of my great regulars. When we arrive, the waiter did not was very friendly at greating us and he brought English menus for everyone, even though two friends in our group did not speak it. I called him to see if he could bring two Spanish menus but he saw me calling him and then completley ignored me. Then, he arrived with a worse attitude that when we arrived, not asking but literally demanding to make our orders. It is a shame that we could not try the food, as we decided just to leave and not take that treatment anymore.

“Don't miss Emilio's!”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Recommended to us by Don from Vacation Buggy Tours, this is the restaurant in Manuel Antonio that we kept going back to. The food, the service, the view -- we loved it! We had breakfast, dinner, coffee and desserts (incredible & homemade) -- everything was wonderful! During the day we could relax and have a leisurely breakfast. One night we stopped by for desserts and coffee and enjoyed wonderful live music. If you go, say hi to Luis -- he's the best!

“Very small cafe”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is a very small cafe that serves delicious pies, salads and panini, and great coffee at a very reasonable price. The staff was very friendly. It is very close to Mariposa Hotel .
