We ate here for lunch with our three boys. The waitress immediately brought us water as we placed our 9 month old in a high chair. We were very happy with the high chairs here because at most restaurants the chairs are poorly designed and our could easily slip out. However, here we could fully enjoy our lunch knowing our...

We dropped in for a cool drink and to enjoy the view. This is a nice pleasant place to spend some time relaxing. Overall the service was a tad slow, especially considering the number of waitstaff on duty. The server was very polite and helpful, the drinks were fantastic, one of the best Pina Colada's I have had.

Had a nice relaxing lunch at Mercato del Porto overlooking Marina Pez Vela. The views were very nice and the lunch was not bad either. They have a nice lunchtime selection of sandwiches, salads, and pizza. We did some personal pizzas that were nicely prepared, just the right size for 1, and came out from the kitchen very quickly. Mercato... More

My family of five - kids ages 14,11 and seven enjoyed this restaurant but the service was lacking. We had to ask the waiter to bring our drinks as we saw them sitting at the bar. And then to order we also had to flag him over. However, the stone fired pizzas and chef inspired deserts were amazing!

I eat at the Mercato somewhat frequently. The staff is always very attentive and always have smiles on their faces. The view of the Marina and never ending ocean is stunning. I love the pizza there. One of my husband's favorite meals in Manuel Antonio is here and it is the seafood pasta. Joxan, the server, is always very friendly... More
