“Wonderful restaurant ”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

This is a must if you are in Manuel
Antonio. The menu is diverse and the service is excellent. The owner seems to greet every guest and the views on a clear day are great.
Now to the best part. The red snapper in had may have very well been the best every in taste and
preparation.

“Good Food and View”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

If you looking for a place where you can have a great view to Manuel Antonio National Park and surrondings, this is the place.. food is good. The menu is just like any other typical restautant, burgers, nachos sandwiches and such... but nicely prepared and tasty...

“Overrated”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

I don't understand why this restaurant is so popular. We went one night and were told it was an hour wait. So we left and went to what turned out to be a much better restaurant down the street. The next night we went back to Agua Azul, figuring it must be good since the wait was so long. We waited about 45 minutes. Once we were served, the food was average at best. I had the coconut crusted fish, which was bland and tasteless. On the other hand, my daughter enjoyed her quesadilla. It was as expensive as any restaurant we visited. It was the worst meal I had all week in CR. The view is terrific, but there are other restaurants with similar views. If you are going to go, I suggest going for lunch or dining early to watch the sunset. Order something inexpensive and enjoy the view. If you want a good meal, go somewhere else.

“Good Spot for Views”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Agua Azul was decent food, decent prices, but amazing views. The staff was very nice and helpful. We had beef and calamari tacos, and they were both good, but this place for us was definitely more about the views than the food.
