Last minute cocktail due to rain on the beach brought us to Kapi Kapi. With desperate cravings for Martinis. When we noticed they were not in the chart, we asked around and the bartender kindly made us awesome Martinis (Gin, not Vodka LOL). There was...More

One of the more pricier restaurants in MA, expect to pay over $100 for 2. Food is good, service is good and very romantic. Great for couples.

We chose this restaurant with friends we had made while visiting the Manuel Antonio National Park. Our food, while plentiful and good was not great - as the ratings from multiple sources had suggested it would be. They only had two of the 4 red...More

The food was nice but maybe too expensive in comparison to what you can get elsewhere in Manuel Antonio. The cocktails served though were amazing , I would go back just to drink a pina colada :-)

I'd be surprised if so. It's Costa Rica, so you're lucky if they have a telephone at all.

Kapi Kapi Restaurant is Manuel Antonio's choice for fine dining. Our Asian-influenced seafood, succulent steaks, and original dessert menu keep locals and tourists coming back again and again. Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi sound delicious? How about sugar cane skewered prawns with a tamarind,coconut, and rum glaze? Our fresh peppercorn-seared ahi tuna is to die for! Start with seafood cigars, our most popular appetizer and finish with the hot chocolate souffle! We are open daily 4pm-10pm on the main road to the park across from Pacific Colonial Condos and Tulemar resort.
