We ate the waiter's recommendation of Ceviche and Mahi and Tuna. The service was attentive and the food came quickly. We recommend you try this comfortably cool restaurant!

And even by Applebee's it would be on the bottom tier. Pros - none, cons - where do I start?!? First off, we chose this restaurant because of the great reviews and we wondered if we were at the same place that these people on trip advisor had raved about. 1. Couldn't read the menus because they were so old... More

The views were incredible, and sunset was spectacular to... More

Our guide took us here after our tour of Manuel Antonio National Park. We were treated well. The tropical drinks were delicious and I have to say it was one of the best meals we had during our two week stay in Costa Rica. The view was amazing as well. A wonderful experience all around.

I was introduced to this gem by locals I befriended while in the area. On the bus, one of their staff ensured I found it, and he escorted me to the restaurant from the bus stop. Friendly staff. Food was delicious. Definitely a place to return to.

Charming little restaurant with delightful staff and stunning views. They were happy that we shared a meal (which was delicious) and could not have more welcoming. Highly recommend.
