Visited primarily to sample the selection of craft beers they have on tap - by far the best selection in Manuel Antonio. Food was also delicious and the brownies are not to be missed. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Getting the kegerator for our business was a selfish gift! ;) However we do enjoy sharing Costa Rica's delicious craft beers with all. Thank you so much for coming in to sip a few and I do hope we will see you again. Pura Vida!

We went to Cafe Milagro with our travel group. We were greeted by the owner who put together a specialty menu for our group. It was very nice. I almost ordered the tenderloin, but the server recommended the catch of the day which was mahi-mahi. Before our entrees, they brought out a few of their signature appetizers to try. They were really nice, there was one that tasted like cornbread that was topped with what I think was pulled pork, that dish was my favourite! After sharing around the plates we were all stuffed. It was also two of our friends birthdays, and they treated them to dessert which was nice. The chocolate avocado mouse was pretty good, very rich though. I prefer a non-vegan option. But if you're looking for vegan, then you should definitely go for it! The coconut cream pie was delicious too. The most notable thing about the experience was the customer service. The owner came and introduced herself. And the server was very nice(Arland). Every plate was placed at our corresponding seat, which I am not used to in Central America. At the end of our meal, they even offered us a coffee tasting which was a nice little touch. Also, I'm not sure if it's every night, but that night they had live music. It was very nice! I definitely recommend this cafe.

We visited Cafe Milagro on November 10th. I ordered the Lomito de Cerdo Criollo and it was so good! My favorite thing on the menu was the calamari appetizer. I swear I ate the whole platter (sorry to my friends... haha)! Definitely worth your time in Manuel Antonio, you do not want to miss it!

Some friends and I visited the cafe for a birthday celebration and were very pleased by the ambiance and service of the restaurant. Live music was great and as the night progressed the energy got better and better! Would highly recommend to anyone one looking for great food and a fun atmosphere!
