We really enjoyed our evening at La Cantina. The portions were a little on the big side although we hadn't realised that we'd ordered a starter each which actually should have been for two!

My fish was great. My husband had the vegetarian brochette which was good.

We enjoyed the live music, there was a latin band on and they did covers of a few Buena Vista tunes and then other, older stuff such as Imagine and Brown eyed girl.

It would have been good to have more choice on the vegetarian menu but apart from that it was a good night.

La Cantina had excellent servers (happy, helpful, relaxed) and a variety of different dishes to choose from. There were fish, chicken, & beef options catering to everyone. The food itself is tasty, cooked to order, and fairly quick. If you're in the mood for grilled options, this is probably a good choice however the price point is higher compared to other Manuel Antonio restaurants. Everyone in our group enjoyed their experience at La Cantina and their meals.

This restaurant is located right across the street from the hotel Costa Verde. It is owned by the same people and the customer service is out of this world. The food is awesome and reasonably priced. Go eat here. And, if you're lucky enough to catch some fish while visiting Manuel Antonio, bring it here, and they will prepare it for you for as little as four dollars. You have a great time. Make sure that you enjoy some of the tropical drinks.

We wanted to hang out and listen to music while eating some dinner. They advertise the 2x1 burger special at entrance - Do not order - the meat is half the size of the bun and it seems to be old or dry meat. My girls shared the chicken nacho appetizer and also said it wasn't good. Atmosphere was okay, live music, relaxed environment, but maybe best just to come by for a beer or drink and chill but not to eat. There are many better choices in Manuel Antonio with much better prices and food.
