Beautiful sunset cocktails, great ambience swinging in the hammocks. Very tranquil...

We sat and drank cocktails for a few hours and then went to the restaurant for our dinner reservation. It was nice to receive A complementary Arancini amuse bouche. My partner had the coffee beef tenderloin and I had the chicken breast with broccoli purée! Finished off with a bottle of red and a chocolate fondant. Service was excellent!! Highly recommend

We stayed at Nantipa hotel for 16 nights and i think we ate at Manzu for 13 of them-it was that good. The food was simply stunning. The staff were excellent,very knowlegeable and everyone spoke perfect English! The beauty of this place is that you can eat either on the beach (facing the sunset) or more formally in the covered area. i would recommend Manzu for a formal dinner, sunset cocktails or a snack on the beach. it does all three superbly.

New year dinner

My experience at the restaurant and the New Years meal was amazing, service was incredible, seven dishes serviced on the table on perfect timing one by one was, If I expected something better could be imposible. The food presentation, flavor and portion priceless.

All the personal have the best costumer service ever.

My experience was beautiful thanks Nantipa and Manzu restaurant for a perfect new year beginning.

Everything in Santa Teresa is pricey, but got a nice restaurant with the quality of food, this is really good value for money. I've paid similar eating in a trashy road side restaurant.

This restaurant has it all. Incredible ambiance, food selection, quality, and service. Stroll along a winding tropical path to enter the open air restaurant on the beach. Choose to dine at tables nestled in the sand, or in the main dining area under a bamboo roof; both while listening to relaxing ocean breezes. I went with a large group and we were catered to with spectacular care even during a busy holiday week. I loved swinging in the hammocks after dessert and looking up at the sky. 5 Stars!
