Along with the great view of the ocean, the food and service is top notch. They also make their own green hot sauce thats flavorful and mildly hot. They also sell it in a bottle which we bought 2 of them to take home. Yum!

The staff was very friendly and the mojitos were excellent. They have a wide range of food options here, each one was very good. My family all highly recommended the burgers. Their fries are also excellent

If you are in the Manuel Antonio area you must go to this restaurant. Excellent food. Great variety. The nicest people. Orlando, Diego and the team are fantastic hosts. Went there 3 of the 5 nights I was in town only missed 2 because they were closed Wednesday and didn't discover them the first night. Can't wait to go back!

My husband had a great burger and I enjoyed the most massive burrito I have ever had! 3/4 of which I took back to the room! Good Margaritas!

We dined at Aqua Azul twice with similar and memorable meals as a result. The place is crowded likely because of its reputation for food and service.

Very nice welcoming staff. The food was delicious. Be careful of the house made hot sauce! It was out of this world but is truly HOT. The Plantain Tower was awesome! The buffalo chicken salad was nice and spicy. The Burrito was huge! The veggie was great as well. Great assortment of seafood.

After spending two weeks in Costa Rica travelling around different areas we came across this eatery on the penultimate night of our stay. We enjoyed the experience so much we came back on the last night. Great food, fun atmosphere, happy customers and very friendly staff.
