All outdoors and enjoyed watching the sundown. Food was excellent and service was superb. Was a nice break from the resort restaurants.

Had a most delightful meal last night for my husband's 80th birthday. Food was excellent - the cinnamon and coconut encrusted mahi mahi was the best I have ever tasted! The staff were extremely welcoming and helped us celebrate my husband's birthday with a chocolate brownie and candle! Can only give my highest recommendation.

I have been going back for the food specially the oriental shrimp salad,I recommend it ! The bad thing is the restaurant only has 10 tables and with just a big group of people it's full and you are out of luck! Prices are high,service is great !

Make it a point to dine here when in Manuel Antonio. Took the family for lunch and enjoyed the food and service as always. Consistently great food, service and views. No Amex though.

The food and service in the restaurant were top notch for a bar, but the view from this restaurant was truly world class. The bar overlooks the bay in front of the Manuel Antonio beach and caught a beautiful sea breeze, which was oh so important in the middle of a hot day. Probably the only down side of this... More

This place is a very casual dining experience. Love the plantain tower. Great sunset views as well. They have a huge burger - I think called the "American". Either share or plan to bring some home. Prices are quite reasonable.

The food was absolutely amazing. We had fresh seared tuna and mahi mahi, both were delicious! It was recommended to us by our taxi driver, he knows the owner. It was well worth it.

I ate here twice while visiting the area. While open air deck seating (as most things in the area are) the setting is fine. The service was spotty on both visits. While each server was warm and friendly, they were just hard to come by, throughout both of our experiences eating here. The food itself? One of their big claims... More

I got the Panko Crusted Tuna, which was outstanding. The mashed yuca is good though really heavy on the butter. Don't get any of the fried dishes, they don't do that well.

5 star view. Great food. Good service. I really like this place! The tacos are good. Can see the whole bay from their restaurant. Not a bad seat in the house
