Calle Manuel Antonio, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica,

Serves meat, vegan options available. This restaurant has a cute theme where it's taken the body of a 1954 Fairchild cargo plane which was originally purchased by the US government in the 80s for the Nicaraguan contras, but it never made out of its hangar in San José because of the ensuing Iran-Contra scandal. In 2000 the owners purchased it for cheap and proceeded to cart it piece by piece to Manuel Antonio. It now sits on the side of the main road, where it looks as if it had crash-landed into the side of the hill. It's a spot for drinks, dinner, and a Pacific sunset. The oriental salad and oriental fried rice are both vegan suitable. Call for hours - tell us.

“Good options for veg - fun airplane theme - Edit

This restaurant has a real cute theme where they've taken the body of a 1954 Fairchild Cargo Plane which was originally purchased by the US government in the ’80s for the Nicaraguan Contras, but it never made it out of its hangar in San José because of the ensuing Iran-Contra scandal. In 2000 the owners of El Avión purchased it for only US$3000 and proceeded to cart it piece by piece to Manuel Antonio. It now sits on the side of the main road, where it looks as if it had crash-landed into the side of the hill. It’s a great spot for a drinks, dinner and a Pacific sunset. The food was good and really large portions (even their appetizers). We ate the veggie nachos (vegetarian), oriental salad (vegan) and oriental fried rice with came with a large salad (vegan). We had to doggy bag our food. A great place to take pictures and enjoy the view of the ocean - lots of seats where you sit and admire the view. The service was great! It was pretty inexpensive for a themed restaurant with beautiful ocean views!

Pros: Interesting, Ocean view tables

Cons: Noisy
