We had dinner here on our last night in Manuel Antonio. It was a rainy evening and we sat on the bar overlooking the beach and street. We enjoyed two pasta dishes - the ham and mushrooms with a cream sauce and the seafood pasta...More

Service was extremely nice, no dress code :) The food was great and they are right in front of the beach. Sometimes the waiter forgot our requests but we didn't mind and we were not in a hurry at all.
