“Best Food and Service on our Entire Trip”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Dinner last night at La Luna was the best meal of our entire 8 day trip in Costa Rica. Service was outstanding and only outdone by the food. Beautiful presentation and absolutely delicious. I had the ginger and panko crusted ahi tuna which was out of this world. Fish was caught fresh the day of our meal. Chocolate lava cake was delicious. Prices were reasonable. Live music was a little loud for our taste. I recommend this place HIGHLY

“Excellent Meal, View and Service Recommended by Locals Too”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

My new daughter in law who lives in Manuel Antonio recommended this highly. Not too pricy but super value for what we thought would have been much more expensive. First you park and attendants whisk you to the top of the mtn. by golf cart. A live band greeted us in the open air pavilion at sunset, beautiful! We made no reservation, a Monday night during off season and we got a table for 6 easily. Loved my panko crusted tuna and the Gaia salad was fabulous, highly recommend this speciality. Everyone was please with their food and the price for such an elegant meal,in a lovely setting.

“Unqualified Recommendation”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

La Luna is a standout in the mixture of properties vying for tourist trade in Manuel Antonio. Striking architecture, attentive staff who transport you to the restaurant, and then the spectacular restaurant with its panorama view of the Pacific Ocean. Sunset simply accentuates the ambiance.

Servers are excellent. The menu offers plausible choices, not an unrealistic endless list that engenders skepticism. Prices are moderate; very fair for the quality of the food and setting.

“Honey moon to the moon at La Luna!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

Me encanta la com idea aqui! The food was so delicious and the drinks were great! The bartender, Joshua, makes the best caipirinhas my husband and I have ever had! Definitely would recommend the coconut crusted Mahi Mahi and the Shrimp Tag :) The service was also very good!
