Description: Kapi Kapi Restaurant is Manuel Antonio's choice for fine dining. Our Asian-influenced seafood, succulent steaks, and original dessert menu keep locals and tourists coming back again and again. Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi sound delicious? How about sugar cane skewered prawns with a tamarind,coconut, and rum glaze? Our fresh peppercorn-seared ahi tuna is to die for! Start with seafood cigars, our most popular appetizer and finish with the hot chocolate souffle! We are open daily 4pm-10pm on the main road to the park across from Pacific Colonial Condos and Tulemar resort.

“prawns, snapper filet to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

beautiful and peaceful setting, excellent service. We went back two nights in a row because we had such a good experience the first night and wanted to try other menu items. Highlights were prawns on sugar cane skewers with pineapple fried rice and a snapper filet in a red pepper sauce! my mouth is watering remembering it!

“Simply FABULOUS!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Everything from the atmosphere to the outstanding service to the freshest food, sets this restaurant apart from all the others! I was greeted by such a friendly server with such a beautiful smile. He suggested I tried the "mango Mojito" instead of a "regular" one, and what a refreshing treat that was?!! I enjoyed the BBQ rib appetizer and the "seared tuna" and both were simply terrific! When in Manuel Antonio, please fellow Tripadvisor members, put this one on your list! It's a tantalizing dining experience, sure to please!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Kapi Kapi is a must try in Manuel Antonio. The food is absolutely delicious. We heard that the quality of sea food in such high touristy areas isn't always the greatest (cheap picks at inflated prices) but Kapi Kapi is an exception! The restaurant is absolutely beautiful, I was with a girl friend and there were a couple of groups - but it is definitely a romantic spot. I had the tuna and my friend had the red snapper, both meals looked so good that half way through we switched so we could try the other. We also tried the sangria and mojito - I am a snob when it comes to both and they were both fantastic! To top it all off, we ordered the chocolate souffle for dessert (have to order it 30 minutes prior) - I don't want to say too much b/c I don't want to over hype it but it is so lovely and perfect after the main meal. You will not regret dinner at Kapi Kapi!
