El Patio at Cafe Milagro has long been one of my favorite restaurants in the Manuel Antonio and Quepos area. It’s even better on nights when Puro Bossa is playing. This delightful duo does traditional Brazilian bossa nova tunes as well as Latinized versions of pop and rock classics.
Agua Azul was recently named Best Restaurant in a locally voted on Best of Manuel Antonio 2012 campaign. This open-air, high perched restaurant definitely serves up some excellent food, with arguably the best views in the area. Especially around sunset.
As part of my never-ending quest for the perfect fish sandwich, I lunched at Rafael’s Terrazzas, another local spot with to-die-for views. The views here are hard to beat.
However, the fish sandwich, while offering up a tender and fresh and substantial serving of mahi-mahi, suffered from an all-to-common error–an insipid store-bought bun that wasn’t up to the task.
