Great food! I might be bias because it is where we stayed for our trip. Sunset views are unreal and so is the service.

This restaurant was very close to the house we were renting, so it was a must to go to, but would not choose to return because of high prices. The atmosphere is wonderful (music too loud for us), service is excellent, food was VERY good (just had appetizers during happy hour) and we would have definitely returned if it wasn't... More

My husband and I were staying in a different area, but took a day trip to MA. We spent the day on the water and wanted a nice meal before we headed back to Uvita. We had made reservations and the staff was prompt to help us park and take a ride in the golf cart up to the restaurant.... More

We decided to have our "fancy" dinner at La Luna during our stay in MA. We had very nice evening with excellent food. My steak was fantastic and cooked to perfection! They had excellent complimentary sauces to go with it, but I prefer just the steak alone and medium rare. Though our time here was at night, you could still... More

We had an outstanding dinner for quite a reasonable price. Get the plantain appetizer and either of the two Mahi dishes (plantain/ coconut crusted or local specialty in a tomato based sauce).

The views were stunning. The restaurant ambience was classy, modern, and comfortable. Service was five stars all the way around. The food, however, at this price point was average at best. My steak was medium to medium-well though I ordered medium-rare. While we weren't disappointed, we were all underwhelmed. Nevertheless, I still recommend this restaurant during your visit.

Thank you for your very nice review. We wish you had pointed out the issue with the temperature of your steak. That would have been rectified immediately. Please e-mail me directly and provide the date (along with your mailing address) of your dining experience with us. We will take care of the cost. Thank you for your patronage! More

The view was unbelievable and the food was even better! The plantain crusted mahi mahi is a MUST TRY! The outside coating was crisp and the fish inside was cooked wonderfully. The sauce and the puree on the side paired perfectly with the flavors of the fish.

Excellent food at reasonable prices. Our waiter Josh was outstanding. His English was excellent and he made our visit very enjoyable. In fact, all of the wait staff worked together to see to our every need. The view of the sunset is spectacular. Catching sight of the scarlet macaws that are in the area is 'the cherry on top'.

What an outstanding experience! Great staff! Food was amazing! We had drinks during sunset with a spectacular view and with several Macaws flying by. Also, a white-faced money in a nearby tree. We followed with a birthday dinner for my wife. The chef and his team joined to sing Happy Birthday. We couldn't have asked for more. We are going... More

A few years back I had dinner here and it was AMAZING. So on my recent trip with a bunch of friends, I brought them all back telling them how great it was. I was so embarrassed! Not one was happy by the end of the evening. The food left nothing to be desired, totally over priced and the service... More

Please recheck your location. We have not had a party of 14 at our restaurant in the past 3 months. Furthermore, a $40 cocktail just does not exist on our menu. We suggest you were at a different restaurant? More
