Milagro is by far our favorite breakfast spot in M.A. Yes, other cafes have better views, but Milagro has the best coffee, best service, and great local food.

Indoor and outdoor seating with a great menu for all diets, even VEGAN like our daughter, live entertainment in the evening too! It is common knowledge that... More

We ate here once during our 6 day stay in Manuel Antonio and were so tempted to go back, but resisted only because we wanted to try out a range of restaurants. A slight regret, I must say, as this was definitely one of the best meals of our holiday. We sat in the back garden area of the restaurant,... More

Didn't love my steak, but my family enjoyed their meals - wraps etc - the yuca fries were probably the best fries I've ever had! And yes- coffee was excellent

Thank you for coming in with your lovely family and we are so happy everyone enjoyed their time with us. We are sorry to hear you weren't excited about the steak, that surprises us and we hope you informed your server so we could take care of you. Agreed, the yucca fries are out of this world!

Good for breakfast and dinner. A good, down to earth restaurant. Good patio area and terrace. Nothing fancy but good food and definitely worth a visit.

This cafe was very quaint and simply lovely. Not sure about the food because we only stopped for a coffee, but would highly recommend stopping here for a drink as it was shady and peaceful. The service was really good too to top it off.

This place is a little bit away from Manuel Antonio hotels and the town of Quepos. The ceviche and Jamaican jerk chicken are excellent. The pumpkin soup is very rich and delicious. The decor of this place is very cool. A must try in Manuel Antonio.

Incredible back patio, delicious dinner ( seafood) and great coffee! Highly recommend for a high quality affordable meal in Costa Rica. Breakfast looks good, but similar to an american brunch spot.
