Manuel Antonio and the Central Pacific Coast Restaurants

Marlin Restaurant

Fodor's Review

The outdoor tables are pretty much always full, owing to a location on Manuel Antonio's busiest corner, across the street from the beach. This is a convenient place to grab breakfast after an early-morning hike through the park—maybe banana pancakes or a típico, with eggs and gallo pinto (black beans and rice). The lunch and dinner menu ranges from the ubiquitous arroz con pollo (rice with chicken) to tenderloin with french fries, and jumbo shrimp in garlic and lemon butter. The fresh mahimahi and tuna are always a good bet.
