Can't go wrong with this outdoor restaraunt. Perfect for lunch! We went here a total of 3 times in a one week vacation with kids. We all loved it!

We had heard about this place from our son in law and it was every bit as good. The food was amazing and the view is breathtaking !! Come early as the place is fairly small and gets busy. I think you'll like it as the food and atmosphere are great !

My boyfriend and I had lunch there on our way to Quepos. It's fairly small, not even a dozen of tables. Where we were sitting, we didn't have a full ocean view since there was tables in front of us but we could still see it and it was just beautiful. The lady that was working there, from South Carolina... More

My friend I came here upon recommendation of the great views for sunset. It serves seafood, burgers, wraps, sandwiches, etc. Our food was nice, nothing exceptional, but very satisfying. The views were gorgeous. The place gets packed, so come earlier to see the sun set. Definitely recommend it!

Great food and atmosphere after a long day of adventure in Quepos and Manuel Antonio. Local fresh ingredients make for some incredible seafood. Their homemade hot sauce is incredible with a nice balance of heat and flavor. This is a place I could eat at every day.

Any time we asked someone in Manuel Antonio for a restaurant recommendation, they would include Agua Azul in their top 3. Just a casual, fun little place with a great view and probably the best service we had at any restaurant in the area.

My family and I had lunch here on our recent trip. The view was fabulous, but I felt like the food was just so so. I had the fish sandwich with fries. The fish was delicious, but the fries, bun etc. were just average.

The first place I stop when I arrive in MA is Agua Azul and mainly for the grilled Mahi sandwich. It is the best I ever had and I dream of it when I return to the states. This year I brought 10 other family members and they couldn't believe how incredible the food was especially the Mahi. Every day... More
