We went here 2 out of our 4 nights in Manuel Antonio! The food, cocktails, staff, location and Karma are the best. The shrimp appetizer and chicken satay are a great way to begin. The curry and cashew chicken were so delicious for a main course and the chocolate cake from the owner's 101 year old grandmother's recipe was so chocolaty and delicious! We also had a pineapple upside down cake which was just as tasty.
The owner, Bill, was so friendly and spent a lot of time with our group telling us about his restaurant and information on Costa Rica. The experience at Dragonfly Thai was more that just eating a delicious meal.
Being a vegetarian in Costa Rica isn't always easy but Dragonfly Thai has a lot of yummy dishes to offer to vegetarians and vegans.
We highly recommend that you eat here at least twice :)

Excellent food at an excellent price. One of the cheapest meals we had in Costa Rica and one of the best. Nicely decorated and a very enjoyable evening. Well done.

Facing the famous Manuel Antonio beach this is an offering not to be missed. Being a new business since the beginning of the year the owner is attracting a healthy clientele. Open in the evenings when I was there in January, great time to catch the sunset and a good meal.

Lovely food, I had the fresh spring rolls to start which were raw and very unnusual but great. The food was better than most places I have eaten in Costa Rica and had a great range, and is one of the best in Manuel Antonio for sure. The staff are all very friendly.
