    El Avion: El Avion - Better than most food in Manuel Antonio

    by sean420 Written Jun 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    El Avios

    El Avion is a cliff side restaurant that features a bar located inside an entire Fairchild C-123 cargo plane that was left over from the United States’ secret war against the communist Sandinista government in Nicaragua during the mid 1980’s. The food at EL Avion was good and more reasonably priced compared to the other places we are while in the area

    Principal street of Quepos

    Great little mexican restaurant, open and well design. Good mexican food, good options, generous plate, good quality. Recommended for an inexpensive lunch.

    Favorite Dish: Mexican salad and burritos (although the meat was ground beef)

    Laterna: Wood oven pizzaria

    by Suzanne123 Written Feb 26, 2005

    The ambience is very nice here. The prices are high ($16.00 for two personal sized pizzas with two toppings). A very popular place with other tourists. Service charges are added to the prices on the menu.

    Other restuarants in Quepos, el gran escape and los docos, were popular, crowded, and pricey also! They wanted 7.50 for a burrito!

    Manuel Antonio beach: The ultimate tourist experience!

    Coconut on the beach

    This must be a real tourist trap, but we enjoyed it a lot, imaging we are royalties on some desertic tropical island! And couldn't wait to send this picture to our friends back home in the snow...

    Favorite Dish: A vendor stroll on the beach with a big coconut. An ibiscus flower on top, just for the fun of it. When we hailed him, he cut the top off and put a straw in it for us to drink the milk.

    He later came back to cut it open so we could we the insides.

    Decadent!

    PS it seems weird to pay for a coconut there, but we were told the park authority try to preserve as much as possible their coconut trees and their fruits... understandable.

    Manuel Antonio hill

    El Avion Restaurant

    By the end of our Manuel Antonio Beach Day, we decided to walk back to our hotel, up the hill. A very extenous decision that I'm now glad we took as we got the chance to (slowly!) explore the area. Numerous restaurant brightens the lush green vegetation of the only road between Quepos and Manuel Antonio, each one smeling better than the other one. A lot are quite original, like the El Avion on the picture. There was one in an old fashion train too. From up-scale to economical, but all with a great view and fun ambiance.

    We didn't stop, unfortunately, but do so for us! Or at least, know that you have the option!

    Cafeteria Kamuk: Little soda

    Patrick at one of the tables of Cafeteria Kamuk

    Browsing around after our last day of fishing in Quepos, we stopped at this nice little restaurant. We found it was the Kamuk's (Best Western hotel) snack bar. They offered a varied menus, really offardable prices, welcoming service, friendly atmosphere and quite a nice view on the Pacific ocean and Quepos docks.

    Went back a year later, still good, cheap, clean, perfect for a quick lunch!

    Dos Locos: American hangout

    by yelli Written Jul 28, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    also serve comida tipical, like all CR restaurants

    This is the only place we went in Quepos to eat (twice, once for drinks and once for food), but that was because its very close to the bus stop and has a friendly looking atmosphere. We didn't realize until we were almost done with our meal that the only non-Americans were the waitresses. So... if you feel homesick you can go there for some "Tex-Mex." The food wasn't bad and there arent really walls, so you can watch the city (and the bus stop - a plus) while you eat.

    Rico Tico Bar & Grill: LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION

    by jag17 Updated May 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A casual restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. I honestly don't remember the food, although I remember that we enjoyed it. This place is all about the atmosphere. The restaurant is perched on the edge of the hotel, overlooking the jungle and the ocean. It was pouring rain the night we were there, and it was beautiful. Not bad for an afternoon beer and a snack as well. Live music while you dine is an added bonus.

    Favorite Dish: They advertise a menu of Tico and Tex-Mex.

  • Cafe Milagros: Not so pleasant service

    by aliang9 Written Jun 5, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The food there was nothing spectacular. Typical cafe food (muffins, eggs, bagels). However, the frozen drinks like Mono Loco and Quepoccino were great. One thing I did not appreciate was the snotty and unhelpful service. I guess Cafe Milagros is becoming more and more commercialized. :-(

    Favorite Dish: Mono Loco and Quepoccino.

    Juan, the owner is very accommodating. The seafood is done very well. We had the tuna sashimi which was very fresh. The guitarist and singer is very soothing. Definitely have to go there if you are in the Manuel Antonio Area.

    Favorite Dish: tuna sashimi, tres leche, house specials

  • Soda Coma Bien: Typical Food!!

    by aliang9 Written Jun 5, 2003

    "Cassado" is the staple. However, Soda Coma Bien is the place for the more traditional food. The ladies are very nice and helpful. This soda (diner) on the east side of the Quepos bus station serves delicious foods like Olla de carne (Beef soup w/rice), Mondongo (Beef tripe) and Pollo Consumme (Chicken and Vegetable soup with rice). The empanadas were great. The tamarindo drink is as local as you can get. Get there early because the good dishes sell out fast.

    Favorite Dish: Olla De Carne, Mondongo, and empanadas

    bar y restaurante Mar y Sombra: double breakfast...

    by pollon Written May 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At least for breakfast there is a wide choice and don't think that fruit with yoghurt is something to add, it's a whole breakfast itself so I had a sort of double breakfast as I ordered after a huevo revuelto, which doesn't come alone...

    Los Almendros: parrila...

    by pollon Written May 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    this parrilla (steakhouse) serves meat in "big" portions and the waiters were extra friendly.

    they have also an internet sevice and when later on I was back to play with it, they were not strict at all with the minutes I had exceeded (you pay for each half an hour).

    Favorite Dish: a quarter of a chicken, grilled and served with sauces, is huge and if you are a chocolate lover, don't miss their big, yummy mousse...

    El Fogon: on the way...

    by pollon Updated May 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had breakfast here, on the way from Jaco (where I had overnighted and exactly at about 40 km from it) to Manuel Antonio, in a little town called Parrita: the place is less Central American in the style - as I normally plunge into the most local places I can find ;-) - but not in the food, good and at a very reasonable price.
