Don't miss this place while in Manuel Antonio. Grilled red snapper was incredible. Great drinks too. I hear the views are spectacular too but we were there at dark. Maybe try sunset.

Great food (particularly the daily seafood pasta special) and service. Nice atmosphere with an open kitchen and bar and clearly popular, even in low season. Only went in the evening so can't comment on the view, but imagine that would be great too!

We loved our lunch at Cafe Agua Azul! The whole-fish snapper was AMAZING. Service was great, and the view was absolutely gorgeous. Our kids (12, 10 & 7) loved ordering a hamburger from the menu. You have to see the menu to understand why. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We were looking for a place for happy hour and hoping to catch the sunset. Unfortunately the sunset was blocked by surrounding cliffs. Might not be an issue in spring or summer.
