My wife and I had the Crudites appetizer followed by Tuna Medallions seared with a black and white sesame-seed crust and the Bali Chicken Satay with peanut sauces. Fantastic food and an adventure to get there since they golf-cart you up the steep hill of the Gaia Hotel site where you can get a glimpse of brightly colored parrots in... More

La Luna was by far the nicest restaurant we dined at during our Costa Rican vacation. We were so lucky to have Thanksgiving Dinner at La Luna! The views were absolutely gorgeous. We watched a beautiful sunset and took photos while our food was being prepared. I couldn't believe how delicious the turkey & stuffing tasted. Better than I can... More

The restaurant is located inside the hotel so don't be intimidated by the guard gate. You park your car in the lower parking lot and are driven up the hill via golf cart. From the moment you arrive you are treated like the most important guest of the night. The restaurant is beautiful with awesome views. Everything we ordered was... More

We were visiting Manuel Antonio for the Thanksgiving holiday. We wanted a fabulous final meal in Costa Rica. It was my daughters 16th birthday, so it needed to be special. La Luna hit every one of our requirements. Fabulous view, great food, and exceptional service. The golf cart ride to and from the restaurant and the staff singing Hapoy Birthday,... More

We were driving through Manuel Antonio and decided to have Lunch at La Luna. The Ceviche is made with a tasty Aioli sauce and is a great choice for lunch. The restaurant has a fantastic ocean view and the staff are very professional.

We were staying 100m away from the driveway up to La Luna and couldn't believe this idyllic place tucked up high on the hill. We were picked up in their golf cart and driven up the hill to the restaurant while admiring the toucans flying by. The food was some of the best I've ever eaten (tagliatelle with prawns, yum!)...

La Luna Restaurant is the best restaurant we have eaten at during our stay. The food is so good we have eaten there twice not wanting to try any other restaurants since the others have not lived up to La Luna's high friendly standards! We went fishing and brought our tuna to La Luna and they prepared it for us.... More

We had one rainy afternoon so we booked a cooking class with the chef. So much fun! The food is great, and the service is exceptional. Try the Costa Rica casserole!
