Today we’re enjoying a little more than happy hour at the Z Gastro Bar in the Marina Pez Vela, in Quepos, Costa Rica. Z Gastro Bar absolutely has some of the best seafood in Costa Rica. Our Discovery Beach House concierge, Sabrina, and I are on a happy hour tour of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica and the surrounding areas. However, today, we indulged in appetizers and a full meal. We were hungry! Owner, Dean Paquette, and his wonderful chefs treated us to the most delicious seafood.
Z Gastro Bar has arguably the best seafood in all of Costa Rica. When you come to Costa Rica, and when you come to Manuel Antonio and Quepos, definitely come to the Marina Pes Vela. It’s only been here for three years and has some wonderful shops and restaurants. When visiting Costa Rica, you now have three wonderful places to explore, Manuel Antonio, Quepos, and the Marina Pez Vela.
Sabrina, our concierge extraordinaire at the Discovery Beach House, and I are enjoying our happy hour tour at one of our absolute favorite places in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. We’re here at Ronny’s Place.
One of the special things that I love about Ronny’s Place is not only Ronny himself, and the service they provide, but this restaurant is kind of tucked away. It’s the only working farm here in Manuel Antonio. Everybody lines up right before sunset on the benches because we get amazing, uninterrupted, sunset views at Ronny’s Place.
Ronny’s place does have a few signature drinks, such as their sangria, which the Lonely Planet Travel book voted as the best sangria in Manuel Antonio. Sabrina and Ronny also talk about how his sangria is so different from most other sangrias. He’s also famous for his Nanci shot. Then there is the Coco Loco.
Sabrina also shares what her favorite appetizers are and a couple of her favorite dishes at Ronny’s Place. We hope you are enjoying our Happy Hour Tour series at some of the best restaurants in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. We guarantee, if you visit us at the Discovery Beach House, you are definitely going to want to come back to Manuel Antonio.
Evelyn and Sabrina from the Discovery Beach House in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica take us on a happy hour tour of some of the best restaurants in Manuel Antonio. Today they are at Gaia’s La Luna restaurant. As Sabrina mentions in the video, they’ve already had one cocktail at Agua Azul and they’re one hit wonders, so they are really enjoying themselves at La Luna. Sabrina is having the Coconut Margarita and Evelyn is having the Guanabana Margarita. Have you ever heard of the Guanabana fruit? Sounds delicious.
The Gaia Hotel and Reserve is the reason the Scarlet Macaws came back to Manuel Antonio. They started a reintroduction program about five years ago because the Macaws used to be in Manuel Antonio but disappeared in the 1970’s.
Sabrina also teaches Evelyn a hilarious way to get rid of the hiccups. In Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica, we have a relaxed and fun way of living life.
If you are in Manuel Antonio and looking for one of the best restaurants to enjoy happy hour or enjoy a five-star dinner, then Gaia’s La Luna restaurant is definitely one of Evelyn and Sabrina’s favorite places to go.
We’re taking you on a happy hour tour of some of the best restaurants in Manuel Antonio, starting with Café Agua Azul. The margaritas here are not your standard margaritas! The view of the bay and the islands from Café Agua Azul are astounding. The specials are absolutely scrumptious. Listening to Sabrina describe the Panko Tuna will make your mouth water.
If you are in Manuel Antonio and looking for one of the best restaurants to enjoy happy hour or enjoy a meal, then Café Agua Azul is definitely one of our favorite places to go.
