We stayed at Olas Verdes last week, and ended up eating at least one meal per day at El Manglar, often more. The food is fresh and delicious, prices are fair, and the service is fantastic - they actually seem to enjoy meeting their guests and getting to know everyone. I'm missing the breakfasts already!

Unlike other jaded places in Nosara, Manglar really tries to please. Food was excellent...ceviche, Casado, fish burger, and spaghetti. Also appreciated how they easily modified an order to please a picky 4 year old. Worth a visit.

We love the food at El Manglar Restaurant. Their breakfasts are to die for. I usually had the fruit salad with yogurt, but my husband and kids tried everything else on the breakfast menu. The surfer sandwich, the Tico Breakfast, Huevos Rancheros...it`s all fantastic. The food here is always fresh. We loved coming back from surfing and sharing an order of chicken nachos. They are delicious! For dinner, we often chose the Sesame Seared Tuna or one of the many other fabulous fish dishes (usually, Mahi Mahi) or a typical Costa Rican dish of rice and beans. The ceviche is also a delicious post-surfing meal. The people who work in the restaurant are all very kind and friendly and make you feel welcome. We love coming here.

Through Surfi Safari we had breakfast here each morning. Friendly welcoming service, wonderful fruit and yogurt with granola. Perfect way to start the day. My husband has had a variety of egg dishes and been pleased with them all. One morning a lizard fell from a tree onto our outdoor table. Fun surprise!

This restaurant was a nice surprise at our hotel, Olas Verdes. We usually don’t eat at hotel restaurants often, we made an exception here since food was amazing!!!!

You will not be disappointed with breakfast, lunch and dinners here. The fresh fish is very well prepared (tuna and red snapper).

Sandwiches are large, filled with yummy items like avocado, cheese and bacon. There is entertainment on some nights (ie belly dancing). Beautiful location quite close to Playa Guiones beach. This restaurant is a must-Tasty, good portion size, well priced and excellent service (thank you Daniella!).
