Loved the Mahi Mahi - cooked to perfection. Onion rings were also excellent. Good service. They get bringing ice in a glass for your soft drink. Loved this place. Might be best fish taco in CR. Rivals taco bar in Jaco

We had fish tacos and drinks on the sand while watching sunset. Enrique was our waiter and he was great. Food was delicious and a great first meal in Manuel Antonio. My friends went back the second night too.

Nice place across the street from the public beach in Manual Antonio. I had Sopa Mariscos in red broth an it was pretty good, not the best I ever had, but not the worst. My son and daughter in law each had different fish dishes,...More

This restaurant was recommended to my wife and I from our hotel manager. We were at the beach across from the El Sol to watch the sunset. But since the setting sun did not look as dramatic as the previous two nights, we went early...More
