Manuel Antonio and the Central Pacific Coast Restaurants

Piedra Mar

  • Seafood

Updated 04/14/2014

Fodor's Review

With all the new restaurants popping up along the beach road, the favorite standby is still this old shack down on the beach. Tables and plastic chairs are set up under a corrugated tin roof, and the only decor is the rocky seascape, 10 feet away. Your shrimp ($10) or lobster (just $18 when available) comes flavored with garlic and—on windy days—the sea spray crashing against the rocks. Sunset is popular with locals, so come early; the restaurant closes at 8:30. Or come for breakfast at 8 and watch the early-morning sun light up the ocean.
