Along with breathtaking views and gorgeous sunsets, our restaurant serves breakfast and dinner using fresh, local ingredients. Start your day with our complimentary breakfast: fresh fruits, homemade granola, warm muffins and breads, eggs, pancakes and of course, Costa Rican coffee. Our dinner menu includes highlights such as locally caught fish and other delicacies at this authentic full-service Costa Rican restaurant.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2009

One of the best restaurants in Manuel Antonio. I absolutely loved the Costa Rican-fusion menu, and the ambiance and views of the restaurant are incredible. You can even watch monkeys swing from the nearby trees as you sip on a Tico Sour!

“All I have to say is "wow!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2009

Dinner at El Mirador is an exceptional experience!! The signature cocktails are creative and delicious. The restaurant is in a beautiful location, you can see the beach and watch the sunset. The service was wonderful, everyone is so friendly and helpful. The food really topped off a great evening, the tuna was absolutely delicious, I had it two nights in a row! Highly recommend to people staying at Arenas del Mar or in the Manuel Antonio area! Very affordable for the quality and service!
