Lonely Planet review

The featured restaurant at Manuel Antonio’s landmark luxury hotel is perfectly perched to take in the daily sunset over the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. As you’d imagine, you’re paying for the view at this world-class institution, though when the sun dips below the horizon and lights up the sky, you’ll stop caring about the price. The food is largely continental cuisine that takes advantage of Costa Rica’s rich bounty of fresh seafood and tropical produce – if you’re trying to keep to your budget, the lunch menu is a good deal.
