I ended up eating here a couple of times because of the location right across from the beach. The food was okay at best, and the service a bit slow, but I wasn't in a hurry so that was no big deal. Not a bad...More

Went in with expetactions, but everything was bad. Service was terrible, checks never made it, we had to ask numerous times until we got up and helped figure the cost out ourselves. Food could be much better, not very good. Overall, could have essily been...More

We called in here for happy hour, and were made to feel very welcome. I think Happy Hour is most of the time on certain cocktails. We did eat here (after being ripped off by our very expensive hotel the night before) and we found...More

Horrible food and slow service. I ordered a fish casado. The piece of fish was so tiny, like palm sized at the most. Absolutely tasteless and hard like cardboard. Cost almost $4000 colones. My husband had a fish fillet again very small piece and over...More

Want the sushi? Bring a magnifying glass! These are the tiniest sushis I've ever seen. What they taste like? I seriously don't know. They were such a nibble that I couldn't feel the taste while they past the throat. Or the respiratory system for what...More

Overpriced somewhat decent food on the strip on Manuel Antonio. Service is great. Stay for the happy hour. The restaurant is a great location to overlook the ocean and people watch. They serve sub par sushi. One California roll is $8.50 usd.

I think it's a bit overpriced for the size of the dish, but in a tourist area, everything is. However, the casados were great!!! Fish was grilled and delicious. The salad was really tasty and overall it was a good dish. Also they had 2x1...More
