Stayed in Manuel Antonio for two days and came here twice! If you come and there is a wait--it's absolutely worth it. Not only are the staff incredibly friendly, but the view of the ocean is unbeatable. The first night, my boyfriend and I came and sat at the bar. It was so cool to watch the chefs cook right...

The seafood is really good here and fresh! We saw burgers that are huge and some nachos that looked so yummy. The staff makes you feel very welcome.

Service and view were great at this restaurant. Food was good. The restaurant is small but we were able to get a table for 6 at lunch.

Fun atmosphere with lovely staff. Food is excellent, comes quickly, hot and fresh. High recommend tuna margarita and calamari with wine. If you've been fishing why not ask the chef to cook your catch!

This was the best restaurant we visited in the Manuel Antonio region. The food was amazing and priced well - surprisingly one of the least expensive dinners we'd had and the fish was so fresh and delicious. Kid's menu was available and the portions were very generous. The wait staff was very friendly. Highly recommend eating here!

This was recommended by our hotel and reports on Tripadvisor seemed to rate it. It was very popular and we had to wait for 40 minutes to be seated. The food was good but we both had a starter and a main and shared a bottle of the cheapest wine and the bill was over £100. Definitely not worth that... More

We loved this place! We felt very welcome and he gave us good suggestions from the menu. We had the margaritas that were the best we have ever had! The food was excellent and the view was fabulous! They are closed on Wednesdays. We were only there for 5 nights and ate here twice.

The restaurant was recommended by a fellow guest at our hotel and we were not disappointed. Many items on the menu caught my eye and there were many fresh seafood options. I opted for a pasta with mixed seafood and it was fabulous. You could choose red or white sauce. I chose white and was happy to find that it... More
