We did not stay at this hotel but saw that the restaurant was rated highly so took a taxi to the hotel. At the entrance they take you up the hill in a golf cart. The setting of the restaurant is beautiful. The cocktails and ceviche appetizer were great. We were not as impressed by the entrées. I had the ginger tuna which came with a heavy panko crust and was over cooked. It was served with mashed potatoes on some mixed vegetables. It was slightly sweet and not great. My husband had the Mahi and it was just okay. For dessert we ordered the pineapple ravioli, which were thinly sliced pineapples with cream cheese inside. They were served cold and we didn’t really like it. I think they would have been better it they had been grilled and served warm. Overall, we enjoyed the evening and the service was excellent.

My daughter and I went to this restaurant at the top of the Adults only Gaia resort on our last night in Manuel Antonio. We were picked up at the bottom in a golf cart and rode the steep windy way up to the elevator that took us up to this beautiful restaurant. Great art and sculpture all around with stunning views from the top at sunset. After sunset, it’s too dark to see the sea. We ordered the Mahi Mahi ceviche that was the best I’ve ever had. We then split the spicy shrimp fettuccine that was also the best pasta I’ve had. We had no room left for the fish in coconut curry sauce we ordered so we packed it to go and presented it to our concierge at Si Como No for her wonderful recommendation for our last dinner to top off an excellent trip to Manuel Antonio.

La Luna restaurant is perfect if you want to get a great happy hour with a view ! Probably the best view on sunset and ocean that you can get, plus great cocktails at 25% discount. The cocktails are generous. You can also reserve a table for a good meal at reasonable price. Waiting staff really friendly.
