We had the pork tenderloin special, sea bass and jerk chicken for dinner. The pork was very good, tender and moist. The service was a bit slow, considering we were one of the first tables to be seated for dinner that evening. Dessert was fairly generic. Ambiance was nice with live music and open air patio in the back.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

This was a nice relaxing meal after a fourteen hour journey here. Good ceviche, great jerk chicken and relaxing acoustic guitar. You can also tell a restaurant by its rice. If they pay attention to the rice, you know they paid attention to the main course. The rice here is tasty and cooked just right. More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at the backyard garden area. They had craft beers to enjoy (this can be hard to find in costa rica). Great spot for a good dinner at a reasonable price.

Great food, service could improve. Little gift shop, with coffee to come home with. Patio is lovely, and live music is a great benefit, changes daily and doesnt assault your time together.

Evening meal had here; small menu but all dishes done really well. Authentic Costa Rican fare, delicious. Tuna ceviche is a must try. Live music every night. Situated right by the road so outdoor tables can be a little noisy and hot.

Very cute atmosphere, and great food. Try the tuna ceviche in coconut sauce if they have it, and fried green plantain appetizer. Can't go wrong with any of their drinks or menu items.

Tasty food with a gourmet twist (a little bit fruit-centric for my tastes, but not bad). The coffee is spectacular.

The atmosphere is very cosy, the staff great, the food really good and in generous portions, try the cocktails. A haven of peace in the chaos of Manuel Antonio. Not to be missed.

It has a nice sitting patio out in the back as well but try to sit in the front. Slow paced environment so you can enjoy the ambience. The ice coffees were exceptional.
