    My favorite spot in Tamarindo. Cool colorful decor, chill vibe, incredible service, felt very welcome by the owners. Ceviche with mango is the best, as are the smoothies! Mostly healthy foods and juices.

You can get all sorts of tacos, ceviche, smoothies, salads, etc. etc. The best part is the set of swings available as seating at the bar.

    We think this is one of the best dining experiences offered in Manuel Antonio. Every menu item is delicious. The ambiance is quiet, comfortable, and relaxing. Ask ahead about ordering one of their special desserts, too.

    This is a moderately priced restaurant with great seafood and sandwiches. A great place to get table seating on the beach. Do take some bug spray if you are going during the evening hours and sitting outside.

    Lemon Zest Restaurant

    Richard and Nellie Lemon, expats from Miami, love what they do and it shows. Super innovative menu with only the freshest local ingredients make for a changing menu that might be one of the best at the beach.

    La Luna

    9 reviews

    Simply walk south down the beach about 150 yards and you are at laLuna. One of the best place to watch the sun set over the Pacific and have dinner in the state of Guanacaste. This restaurant went through a rough spell when the owner had a baby but it is back to hitting on all eight cylinders now.
