We were here for dinner and loved it! The staff was friendly and attentive. We had a wonderful meal. The restaurant was beautiful and romantic; and, as a mom of 2, I would still feel comfortable bringing the whole family here for a special dinner....More

After a good day on the beach this was the perfect whine down. The sugar cane skewered prawns were amazing. So much so I don't even remember what else I ate. Lol

This restaurant was in walking distance of our hotel, so we tried it. It was not good. Food was mediocre at best. With all the fresh ingredients available, it was hard to understand why our meals were so poor.

Subpar pretending to be more than they are. The travel books ranked this high and they couldn't be more wrong. They clearly don't know good food. The reviews on this site seem to range from amazing and romantic to poor quality. I guess foodies can...More

We had dinner there last week and really enjoyed the food and talking with the owners. It's a great atmosphere and the food was amazing.

The food was decent and excellent service but it was exceptionally overpriced for what it was - a lot more than some really nice restaurants in London. Wouldn't recommend based on value for money.

Kapi Kapi Restaurant is Manuel Antonio's choice for fine dining. Our Asian-influenced seafood, succulent steaks, and original dessert menu keep locals and tourists coming back again and again. Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi sound delicious? How about sugar cane skewered prawns with a tamarind,coconut, and rum glaze? Our fresh peppercorn-seared ahi tuna is to die for! Start with seafood cigars, our most popular appetizer and finish with the hot chocolate souffle! We are open daily 4pm-10pm on the main road to the park across from Pacific Colonial Condos and Tulemar resort.
