The award-winning TuleCafe Restaurant serves the guests of the exclusive gated community of Tulemar Gardens in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The restaurant includes an intimate open-air dining room, with an attached infinity-edge swimming pool and some of the best ocean views on the property. You don’t want to miss the incredible sunsets!

Come for breakfast and you’re likely to see troops of monkeys joining you in the trees adjacent to the dining area. Come for lunch and spend the afternoon by the pool in the comfortable lounge chairs, made more comfortable with the special Margaritas, Fresh Fruit Daiquiris or Pina Coladas! Dinner is a unique experience from the appetizers to the large selection of entrees to the unforgettable deserts and after-dinner specialty drinks, not to mention the view!

The full bar offers excellent Margaritas, Daiquiris and Pina Coladas, all made with 100% natural ingredients. It’s a great place to spend time after dinner meeting new friends or playing board games (available for guests use). Be part of your own private club while enjoying your Costa Rican experience, making memories that will last a lifetime.
