The restaurant is a 15 minute walk from the Mira Mar across the concrete bridge. The restaurant was in a small community. We sat at a table overlooking the river. Lots of local activity going on complete with wandering chickens. We had the catch of the day. It was awesome! Very inexpensive and the portions were huge. The owner speaks very good English.

It's a little walk up the river which is a nice trip to get away from the tourists, and quiet on a weeknight. We were the only ones there until much later. We watched a fish come in off a boat into the restaurant so ordered that. It was one of the best fish meals I have ever had.

Outdoor eating spot, but covered from the direct sun and rain. Ordered the tortilla soup and thought it was the best I've ever had. Delicious food in a totally laid back atmosphere.

We had the most amazing huge coconut shrimp! How often can you say three shrimp was enough! I swear they were three ounces each, and moist and firm. Margaritas contained some serious punch. Service was great, and nice touch with the complementary tortilla chips and salsa.

Manguitos is a bit of a walk from the main part of the village but it's a scenic one and well worthwhile. The atmosphere is relaxed, the food fresh, and the drinks generous.
