My family enjoyed several great meals during our week long stay in the nearby La Mariposa Hotel. Emilio's fresh tuna was a hit across the board. Definitely recommend Emilio's.

This place is amazing - a must for anyone in Manuel Antonio. I went twice on my trip to the National Park. The first day, a monkey came up and stole a bunch of sugar off the table.

We had the Trio Del Mar: huge grilled shrimp with the heads still on them, grilled whole calamari tubes with tenacles, and local grilled seabass dressed with lemon and vegetables. Food was so good we went back for more the next day... More
