We chose this restaurant with friends we had made while visiting the Manuel Antonio National Park. Our food, while plentiful and good was not great - as the ratings from multiple sources had suggested it would be. They only had two of the 4 red wines on their limited list. We had to ask them to change the music to... More

The food was nice but maybe too expensive in comparison to what you can get elsewhere in Manuel Antonio. The cocktails served though were amazing , I would go back just to drink a pina colada :-)

I have reviewed this restaurant before, so consider this an update. This is the place that gave me the best meal Ive ever had in my 42 years on this earth. Macademia Nut Crusted Mahi Mahi. However, upon recent visit, it turns out that the chef from few years back has moved on and the dish simply isnt the same... More

We were here for dinner and loved it! The staff was friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful meal. The restaurant was beautiful and romantic; and, as a mom of 2, I would still feel comfortable bringing the whole family here for a special dinner. I will definitely visit again on my next trip to Manuel Antonio!

After a good day on the beach this was the perfect whine down. The sugar cane skewered prawns were amazing. So much so I don't even remember what else I ate. Lol

This restaurant was in walking distance of our hotel, so we tried it. It was not good. Food was mediocre at best. With all the fresh ingredients available, it was hard to understand why our meals were so poor.

Subpar pretending to be more than they are. The travel books ranked this high and they couldn't be more wrong. They clearly don't know good food. The reviews on this site seem to range from amazing and romantic to poor quality. I guess foodies can see a bad place and folks that aren't foodies, can't. This place is beautiful and... More

Description
Kapi Kapi Restaurant is Manuel Antonio's choice for fine dining. Our Asian-influenced seafood, succulent steaks, and original dessert menu keep locals and tourists coming back again and again. Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi sound delicious? How about sugar cane skewered prawns with a tamarind,coconut, and rum glaze? Our fresh peppercorn-seared ahi tuna is to die for! Start with seafood cigars, our most popular appetizer and finish with the hot chocolate souffle! We are open daily 4pm-10pm on the main road to the park across from Pacific Colonial Condos and Tulemar resort.
