We visited Emilio's cafe so many times as we live in Quepos and it's still one of our Favourite places to go to around Manuel Antonio. The staff is great, the food is awesome & the view is is simply stunning. Definitely worth visiting when in Manuel Antonio!

Ate here one night as it was walking distance from my hotel and the food was excellent. It is a bit pricey, although the quality of the meal did not disappoint.

We came back on a couple occasions to enjoy the whole experience. The friendly staff are a pleasure to be around, and the view overlooks the luscious trees and beach in the distance. Worth a try.

Stunning view and fantastic Menu. Emilio's Cafe is one of my favorite Restaurant in Manuel Antonio. Must try Poke de Atun and Tuna Burger. Simply delicious.

This cafe has almost everything. A fantastic view, great food, the best coffee and wonderful staff. The only thing we missed was a view of the sunset as that is hidden by the curve of the shore. My husband is a complete coffee nut and other than the roaster in the town of Quepos, this place has the best coffee... More

Great sandwiches. We grabbed some to go to eat on the beach and were so pleased with the quality. The coffee was also the best I had in Costa Rica

Great variety, delicious food and very nice staff. Had dinner and would have returned again but ran out of time. Will definitely go again when back in CR.
