“Great food and cool atmosphere.”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We ate here on New Year's Eve 2013 and had a great meal. The food is authentic Thai (we've eaten all over Thailand and can vouch for quality ingredients, flavor, and taste. Portions were enough, but would have loved to keep eating more. Wait staff was very courteous and helpful in suggesting dishes to try. They were also vegetarian friendly with lots of dishes made with tofu and other great veggie ingredients.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a good dinner at Dragonfly. I have lived in Thailand and love Thai food. It was a good change after several days of Costa Rican food. The owner stopped by and chatted with us. I would go again.

“Can't wait to go back:)”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

I have been to Costa Rica a few times now, and this restaurant is a must each time. My husband and I will make the trek no matter where we are staying! Since we love Manuel Antonio so much, we usually end up spending a week or two here regardless. If you love Thai food, you will love this place:) Its right on the beach, so it makes for great views while enjoying your meal. The owner and staff are all very friendly, and they will even deliver your food right to your door step if you just want to have a relaxing night in. Some of my favorites include: the veggie pad Thai, the mushroom coconut soup, and the mango salad! I am already counting down the days until I get to go back :)

“Thai cuisine on the beach.”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Great Thai food on the main road in Manuel Antonio, just across the street from the main beach. Second floor location catches breezes and offers views of the beach. Excellent food and service at a very fair price.
