Marlin restaurant was recommended to us and it was an awesome choice for our family after a day at the beach. I had the fish tacos which were great and had lots of toppings, more than other restaurants we've been to. Just wish we could see the sunset a little better, but still a good location.

had a great lunch here after a few hours at the beach-directly across the street. Great sangria by the pitcher-well priced also. All of our food was very good-my son's tuna burger was possibly the best tuna we had in all of CR (and we had alot of tuna.) Highly recommended for a meal if you are at the beach.

We went here twice for breakfast it was so good, both days I had the tipico, which was eggs any style, pinto Gallo, toast, and fresh juice. The steak breakfast was amazing too. It's right on the beach, so a great view. It's also right down the road from manual Antonio entrance, so a great place to start in the... More

We stop at this restaurant whenever we are near Manual Antonio. It is an open air atmosphere right near the exit to the park. The food is very good, fresh and well prepared. It may take a while to get your food, but the wait is worth it.

Ate lunch at this restaurant on two days and both times it was very good. It is open near the road and beach and is very noisy but staff are efficient so wait is not long. The only complaint is not against the Marlin but there is a open grey Water area not far from the restaurant and the smell... More

We stop by here often and have never been dissapointed. Their tuna salad is one of the best. Price is average and we have always had great service. A must try when at the beach.

Marlin is always a save choice. The menu shows enough options to satisfy most, the food is good and the prices are reasonable for Costa Rica standards. This time we ate the sopa negra, sopa mariscados, the quesadillas and the fish fingers. The fish fingers were fresh and we seldom get them this good, the quesadillas cost a reasonable 5.000... More

Our family of four (including kids ages 11 and 13) really enjoyed this restaurant for dinner. The outdoor seating atmosphere with a view of the beach across the street was a nice perk. Food was very good, seafood was very fresh and tasty too!

Our taxi driver recommended this restaurant. It is at the corner from the beach, the best location on Manuel Antonio Beach. The food is standard, the price is for this prime location. It is nice to have dinner there once during your visit.
