We went here because we were staying at villa bosque and it was pouring with rain. Apart from convenience I'm afraid I can't recommend the food. The tilapia I had was bland, and the rice with squid my daughter had seemed to be missing squid entirely. Trying to find any amongst the mound of rice was akin to finding a... More

My husband and I stayed in Villa Bosque for a week, and we ate most of our meals there. I liked instantaneous service and the fact that we could eat at any time of the day. Their Sopa de Mariscos is excellent, and so are their fruit drinks. The atmosphere is casual--you can come dressed as you like. The restaurant... More

Our family of four (including kids age 11 and 13) loved, loved, lived this restaurant...so much so that we ate dinner here twice during our one week vacation in Manuel Antonio. The menu had numerous choices to satisfy everyone in our family and the food presentation was unique. Our kids loved the blackberry smoothies. The "big people" loved the chicken... More

We arrived on a Monday afternoon. The National Park is closed on Monday so I guess things were slow. We ate here because it was within walking distance to our hotel. I had spaghetti and my husband had fish. The food arrived hot and was very good. The bread on my plate was placed to make it look pretty but... More

Stopped by here before and after our tour to Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park with Tukan Tours. Approached by extremely friendly staff and delicious food. Must try the Seafood Paella for lunch! Fun atmosphere!

The restaurant is part of the hotel by the same name and is located just 300 meters outside of Park Manuel Antonio. This place offers a nice setting to relax after hiking the park or visiting its beaches. The food preparation is up to standards and service is responsive.

We had booked another hotel to stay at, not knowing what was in the area. This wonderful restaurant was next door to where we stayed. The food was soooo good. The chef really knows his stuff. After traveling around looking at other restaurants in the area we returned to this little gem, 4 times exactly, we knew the food would... More

We met some travellers from Boston who stayed here and recommended the restaurant. We had an early dinner with happy hour margaritas. I had the chicken (gordon blue it was called). Delicious. Sort of a deconstructed cordon bleu with a cream sauce, ham and mushrooms. DH had arroz con camarones. Also very tasty and served with fries and salad. 3... More

This is by far the best value for the quality received in Manuel Antonio. Upon discovering it, we dined there on three different days for dinner. We had two different chicken dishes on 2 occasions and fish on one. The presentation was excellent and surprising for such an unassuming restaurant. The ingredients were fresh and cooked to perfection. On one... More

Stayed at La Posada right down the street and walked down for dinner on two nights during our Manuel Antonio trip. Drinks were great, my daughter loved the fruit smoothies. Food was amazing as well. Staff was great, very helpful and friendly. This was our favorite place that we ate while visiting.
