Went a couple times during our week long stay in Manuel Antonio. Sushi was good! Drinks for happy hour were outstanding. Little pricy but everywhere in Manuel is expensive. Sunset was beautiful!

Wonderful food, great view, good service and atmosphere. Looks like they probably are hopping in the evenings with entertainment.

We left the kids back at house and enjoyed a great adult dinner. The sushi and tuna was outstanding. We share two pitchers of sangria (the best), and all had different meals off the menu. Everyone was very pleased with their choices! A must in...More
