Dinner was good, but the view was better. We loved sitting looking out over the street and the beach. Pineapple frozen drinks are great.

Loved the Mahi Mahi - cooked to perfection. Onion rings were also excellent. Good service. They get bringing ice in a glass for your soft drink. Loved this place. Might be best fish taco in CR. Rivals taco bar in Jaco

We had fish tacos and drinks on the sand while watching sunset. Enrique was our waiter and he was great. Food was delicious and a great first meal in Manuel Antonio. My friends went back the second night too.
