Nice setting and very busy place, favourite by many (US) tourists. Exaggerating friendly staff. The many offers more of the same, like in any restaurant. Large portions, but everything comes breaded and with sauces full of sugar to give it a taste. For sure not...More

Great restaurant with amazing food. It is expensive but it is worth it. Probably the best and classiest restaurant in the area. Fish wes well cooked with good garnish. Meat is very good as well and good cuts of meat.

Wonderful meal! Not overly expensive and all 4 of us loved our meals. Mahi Mahi was terrific! The table was ready on time for our reservation and waiter was as friendly as possible. This restaurant and Victoria's right next door are not to be missed....More

The food and service here were top notch. It was an unexpected treat in the Manuel Antonio area. The only thing lacking was no sunset view, so go here after dark and you won't be disappointed.

We tried Kapi Kapi because of the great reviews, but we found the food extremely oily and over-cooked. We knew the restaurant had an oriental theme, but we had thought the food would have been more seared and less saturated with oil. The music was...More

I ate here twice. Each time, one or two of the meals were excellent but the others (pad thai, tuna) were just okay. For the price, portions were just adequate. There are better choices for restaurants in the area, altho the setting is lovely.

I'd be surprised if so. It's Costa Rica, so you're lucky if they have a telephone at all.

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.
