Visited here on our first night in the area; had really good service from Ronny himself and the staff, food was good, although nothing special, and plentiful. Sadly didn't get to see the view as it was pitch black but would return for drinks at sunset.

Our tour guide and our B&B owner recommended we eat at this restaurant. It is one of the few restaurants in the area owned and frequented by locals. Carlos from My Casa B and B called ahead to be sure that had fresh tuna. My husband had fresh yellow-fin tuna--the thickest and largest portion that we have ever been served.... More

First off, don't try to walk to this restaurant! My husband & I made the mistake to walk to Ronny's Place, thinking it was closer to our hotel than it was.

A little hard to find and get to, and if you aren't used to driving on CR's mountain dirt roads, to can be intimidating. But the drive is worth it to get to the top of the hill. The view is breathtaking-- and the breeze off the Pacific cooled the place nicely on a very hot and humid day. We... More

My friend and I went to Ronny's in June 2016. Both of us heard so much about this place I think we really had expected more. For both of us it was good, but not the "wow" factor we had hoped.

We have eaten at Ronny's Place 3 times this year and every time it has been a very enjoyable experience. The view is stunning, the food is wonderful, best fried whole snapper ever, and the service is attentive and fun.

I came here after a long day at Parque Manuel Antonio and the sangria absolutely hit the spot! Ceviche and fish was delicious and service so nice I decided to hang out and watch the sunset. Don't miss it!
