The food was out of this world. We spent our last dinner at Emilio’s. Now I hate we didn’t go before the last night! I had the whole red snapper and my husband had the sea bass with shrimp. Both were amazing. Highly recommended!

I was told that Emilio’s cafe was probably the best restaurant in Manuel Antonio and I really had a great reason to repeat my visit . The staff are ok and the food is completely amazing... I probably tasted the best tuna ever .

Had lunch here, Greek Salad & Falafle pita. Both were good. The view of the ocean is awesome. The prices are on the higher side but the view was worth it.
