Stopped here for happy hour with friends we met in Arenal. Our drinks were made to perfection and we had a blast! Will be back next time we are in Manuel Antonio.

My daughter and I ordered smoothies, ceviche and mani-Mahdi. Total cost is under $30. Great price for the value of the food. We loved it and would come back again for the views and taste of the local cuisine.
