The staff at BillFish went above and beyond for us - we are Canadian and nothing is more important in April than Playoff Hockey! We had a great time watching the games and hanging out with the staff! Order the chicken wings! You will be happy you did! Thanks for taking care of us crazy Canadians!

Spend several evenings during Feb 2017 to watch big screen events, ie. Super Bowl and the Oscars. Great audio and video quality. Advice get there early as fills up especially for the Super Bowl. Food is great , can't go wrong with any of the menu dishes.

We went to the Billfish Sports Bar to watch college basketball playoffs recently. We had such a fun evening! There were also many locals there watching a Soccer World Cup game between Costa Rica and Mexico. It was such fun to watch them cheering on their team as we cheered for our basketball team. We ate a variety of food... More

No they won't have EVERY game but if the game is on anywhere in Manuel Antonio, it will be on here. They do show Sunday NFL games, whatever is televised... More

The menu online is different than what is available at the restaurant, the service was terrible- we had to locate the silver wear ourselves since the waiters were not paying attention to us (too busy watching tv and going outside for cigarettes),...

While travelling Costa Rica, the Toronto Raptors were playing in the Eastern Conference finals. We didn't want to miss the game so we came to check out if Billfish was playing the game. At first they had all the TVs focusing on hockey playoffs but so kindly changed one of the TV's so we could watch the Raptors beat the... More

We visited here one of our nights staying at Byblos Bungalows. Their food was good - 3 of us each tried something different and passed them around. We had shrimp quesadilla, nachos and shrimp PO boy.

This was easily the cheapest place we ate in while staying in Manuel Antonio. We walked past it during the day and saw the advert outside saying Ladies Night, so went back in the evening for a quick dinner and drinks. Drinks were free for women (from a small list of options) and the food was typical of a sports... More
