We are a family of 5 (kids age 17, 13 & 11) and we ordered 4 entrees to share, all different fish, cooked differently. We were simply... More

Delicious food, romantic beautiful setting and wonderful service. I definately recommend this restaurant for dinner while you're in the area. Our server was very outgoing, a great multitasker and had a lot of energy.

We sat here and ate dinner and had sangria for four hours during an evening rainstorm. What a wonderful experience. The tuna and calamari steaks were phenomenal. Felt like a top-end restaurant but was only slightly pricey. We spent about 80 and had appetizer, drinks and entrees.

Great start to a dining experience- their concern was evident throughout the meal. A head waiter offered an excellent wine... More

This whole area has way over priced food. But, Kapi Kapi meals are priced along the lines that would bring me back. This is an... 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.
