The man working outside to lure clients into the restaurant did not let my friend and I come in because we are French. We were confused at first and he very well clarified that it was because we were French. We were very shocked. We noticed him being pleasant with others and when some of our French friends tried to... More

Really good food but slightly aggressive staff. We ate dinner while watching the beautiful sunset.We had pina coladas and sat out front along the beachfront.

Food and service were alright, but we found it a bit pricey and the food wasn't as authentic or tasty as other nearby restaurants. Can't beat the location, though: right across the street from Playa Manuel Antonio!

If you like food, don't come here. The food is tasteless, blend, not inspiring. Actually, the few restaurants on the seaside are roughly offering the same kind of menu with the staple Gallo pinto and other Casados plus americanised dishes like burgers and pasta. Some doing better than others. But not at Hawg! My husband ordered a chicken filet which... More

Chose this for lunch after doing the national park; doesn't look much but our meals were delicious. Chicken chipotle wrap and nachos. Some staff were friendly, some not. Drinks fairly expensive, but view of beach is great.

Just got back from CR: my experience was similar to what others have posted. The location was great, right on the beach, the entertainment was very good and the food was OK. The service I thought was poor, it took a long time to get the bill. The problem was the bill. My wife and I order 2 cheese nachos... More

We were welcomed in with the promise of two for one cocktails "mix & match" they said. We chose one of each - they subsequently brought us two of each and the bill saying you could not mix and match - a total con-job. Also smells highly of the sewers.

Ate tuna tartare salad, tilapia special with avocado sauce and garlic pasta, as well as fish ceviche. All were delicious. Couple we dined with also loved their food. Menu has lots of choices and there is a bar. Service is good, not rushed. Prices similar to in USA, about average for Manuel Antonio. Located on corner about 200 yards from... More
