They offer a menu with Spanish food, international snacks and sushi. We tried the Spanish food and it was delicious. There is a beautiful view. Very moderate prices, and good service. The breakfast, however, isn´t wonderful.

This restaurant completely made our stay at the El Faro hotel. The staff is delightful and the view is spectacular. Try the paella, but come back for Jorge's mojitos - the best I've had anywhere!

View great, food good, service rude. That's not how you win the hearts of your customers! This could be the best place in Manuel Antonio but it really needs a big boost on the service level!

Our restaurant has a fusion of Asian, Tex Mex and Costa Rican food, with a great view of the Pacific Ocean and the Manuel Antonio National Park. We also have a great cocktail list and a Happy Hour from 3 pm to 6 pm. We like to be friendly and helpful with a good taste.
