Recommended by our hotel, we visited Ronny's Place. Great meal. At first I wasn't sure what to expect as it is down farther down a dirt road and it was after dark. I was pleasantly surprised at the peacefulness, great place for a private dinner.

Get there at 5pm and watch the sunset whilst drinking cocktails. Nice fresh fish and prawns. Live music and a lovely relaxed atmosphere.

My b/f and I went to Ronny's Place to eat when we visited Costa Rica this month. The food here is excellent. I had the Seafood Fettuccine and he had the Lobster. Both of our dishes were very good. The sunset is great here, however don't go too early or the sun is right in your face. The staff could... More

Very cool place with a good service to see the sunset while having some dinner or just a few drinks. We've been there with 3 tired kids and it not easy at all :) But, everything we've ordered was OK (2 kids meals, one pasta one salad, couple of mango drinks and an ice cream...) Bottom line, if you are... More

So many positives. Great location, up on a hillside, away from any distractions. Beautiful spot overlooking the ocean and the incredible sunset. Combine this with absolutely delicious "catch of the day" sea bass and friendly helpful service. We have a tomato intolerance and the staff was most accommodating in making any needed adjustments in the ingredients. A beautiful and delicious... More

My fiancée and I ate at Ronny's several times during our week stay in Manual Antonio, Costa Rica. This restaurant was recommended by our driver (Marcos from Quepos) and did not disappoint! The views are spectacular, food is amazing and they even prepared the Snook that we caught while inshore fishing. We dropped the filet off and Alex ensured that... More

We visited here Feb 8 on our first night in Manuel Antonio and made sure to be there on time for the sunset. This was disappointing as the view is obstructed by a big hill and so actually we had a much better view from our balcony at Tulemar! The Sangria was far from the best we had on the... More

Great location. Good service. Good enough food. This is a great place to take in a sunset. Go for drinks and an early dinner. Prices pretty high. But it's prime real estate!

Ronny's Place is unassuming, perched high upon a hill overlooking the Pacific. It's about 1/2 mile up a dirt road. They advertise 365 day sunset views, but in early February the sun set directly behind a hill, so that's not a totally accurate claim. I walked a few hundred meters down the dirt road to get the sunset pictures advertised.... More

Decided to try this restaurant because of all good reviews online but we were disappointed. Appetizer - Fried Calamari, tasted "funny", we were afraid to get sick and did not eat them. Something was also completely wrong with their Sangria, it had very strong unpleasant smell (smelled like dirty mop). Fried Snapper was ok, did not like the dessert -... More
