This beach front open air restaurant is on the northern side of Santa Teresa towards Playa Manzanillo. It's far out of town, but worth the trip for the amazing location and beautiful beach. It seems like a local haunt, though we were joined by tourists as well. The beer was cold and the guacamole was tasty. We both had the casados- one with fish and one with chicken. Both excellent. This is how vacation should be- fresh local food on the beach :)

Drove here from Santa Teresa, which was an adventure in itself. The options were limited in this part of the country, but we were recommended to come here by two at Koji's (which doesn't offer lunch). And we weren't disappointed. If you like typical Latin almuerzo, you'll no doubt be pleased you stopped by. The view is nice and the staff friendly. And then embrace your intrepid side and take your 4x4 on the beach and drive for miles north. It's quite the adventure..

who knew this place was at the end of the beach road heading north from playa hermosa? not me! we stopped in on saturday lunch time by accident. a few tourists and a bunch of local ticos drinking, dancing and having your good old tico saturday. we had patacones with guacamole and it was DELICIOUS. i am sure the rest of the beach food was as good. and the beer was cold. pura vida.

On a recent side trip to Manzanilla we discovered what is now destined to become one of our local favorites.

The Atardecer Dorado is The perfect seaside beach restaurant. It has an unbelievable view of one of the prettiest beaches in coaster Rica. We were treated to a performance of pelicans diving for their lunch as we were waiting for our fish to be served.

They cook with fresh local ingredients and have managed to elevate Costa Rican cuisine to a higher plane. The grilled fish and the fresh seafood soup were spot on. What really got me going were the fried Plaintain pancakes served with our ceviche and guacamole. It may not be the healthiest way to serve a banana but it is something I intend to eat again as often as possible.

Even if you're not staying in Manzilla, this is worth the trip from Santa Theresa or Mal Pais.

I have been to this place three times. The first two times it was all pretty good. Food was average and prices are right. However, the last time I had a ceviche which made me very sick for almost two days...not fun! Also, they don't give real receipts.

Besides the bad experience with the ceviche, the place is in front of the beach, it serves cold beer and is visited by locals...all good. This place is better for just grabbing a quick beer and some finger food...but be careful with the ceviche!

The rooms are very basic but priced right (30$)...wouldn't pay more.
