This was by far our favorite restaurant in Manuel Antonio. Such amazing breakfasts and my very favorite meal that I had in Costa Rica was their Caribbean style fish filet. So good!!

We had a delightful dinner here. Most selections are fresh seafood, but they had delicious chicken, beef and vegetable options for non-seafood eaters. The location is wonderful and the service excellent.

The front is off the main road and looks like nothing. Go inside and your smitten by the ocean views and views of Manuel Antonio NP. Prices are reasonable and the food was excellent. We ordered more food because we didn’t want to leave.

My wife and I originally just went there for coffee, tea, and dessert after dinner. We had such a good experience that we went back the next day for lunch. Tried the Mediterranean pita with falafel. Would get it again. Can't beat the awesome view!
