It was pouring rain and a quiet night at the restaurant, but it did not interfere with our delicious dinner and awesome service we received. My husband and I both ordered fish...tuna and salmon...I can't tell which one was better; they were both so delicious!...More

Our dinner for 6 at Kapi Kapi was delicious and different. The waiters and owner were so accomodating to our requests that we felt very pampered. It was a birthday to remember.

Place was empty at 7. Food was definitely good. Dessert was weird. Ordered a soufflé but it came out uncooked. And they tried to pass it off as a soufflé pudding. Their oven was not working we later found out. Fish was all real good,...More

This is very different to the other quickie tourist restaurants in the area. The setting is delightful, the staff appropriately friendly and deferential and the menu is very interesting but not crazy. The only lacking is some imagination in the wine list.

Off the road, huge place, nicely put together. Arrived on a Sunday night to the place for us at 7.30pm, not a good sign. Wanted 2 main courses, one was actually good, the other one ; the Calamari was probably the worst piece of frozen...More

The restaurant has had some electrical issues and so ongoing improvements to the lightening, will bring out the Tropical, down right Bali infused feel to this very Romantic place. We've been in MA for almost 2 weeks now and we just had our 3rd meal...More

I'd be surprised if so. It's Costa Rica, so you're lucky if they have a telephone at all.

Kapi Kapi Restaurant is Manuel Antonio's choice for fine dining. Our Asian-influenced seafood, succulent steaks, and original dessert menu keep locals and tourists coming back again and again. Macadamia nut encrusted Mahi Mahi sound delicious? How about sugar cane skewered prawns with a tamarind,coconut, and rum glaze? Our fresh peppercorn-seared ahi tuna is to die for! Start with seafood cigars, our most popular appetizer and finish with the hot chocolate souffle! We are open daily 4pm-10pm on the main road to the park across from Pacific Colonial Condos and Tulemar resort.
