We ate here for dinner one night during our four night stay. It was not a good meal for either my sister or I. The breakfasts were okay if you chose something from the grill. The handmade tortillas were excellent.

This restaurant is well located in a hotel next to the Manuel Antonio National Park. Service is good and the food is well prepared. This is an excellent spot for those visiting the park or town.
