We stopped by on our way back from the beach and tried the fried calamari. It was excellent. Very light batter (tempura like) and a very large portion.

The ambiance of the restaurant is like being Ina tree house. The pizza is yummy and the meatballs are a must try. Service is good and it is defiantly worth a meal when in the area.

My husband and I stopped by here on the way home from the beach for a bite. The food is excellent and service is spectacular! Highly recommended. It is definitely a hidden gem 👍

Went there twice during our stay this week. Food was pretty good with highlights being the Calamari, pizza and the mahi mahi. There was almost nothing we ate that wasn't fresh and prepared well. Salads were great too. We would certainly make it a return visit when back in Playa Flamingo.

While in general I don't go to Costa Rica for the food, I must acknowledge Angelina's in Flamingo Beach for being a cut above the typical beach resort food. We ate several meals there on our recent visit, and from salads to grilled fish to their excellent thin-crust pizzas, found the food prep and presentation to be the best we... More

I can't say enough about this place. We had dinner and breakfast in a few nearby restaurants but this was by far the best. The staff was accommodating (party of 10 turned into 12), very attentive, and friendly. The cocktails were great and the menu options were authentic and delicious. I would highly recommend dinner at Angelina's.

One of the best we found in this beautiful little beach town. This is one of the few upscale dining establishments in Playa Flamingo. I think the secret to this restaurant's excellence lies in the fact that they use only fresh locally harvested ingredients. This also may be the reason for the frustration of its clients when they arrive to... More

A group of 5 adults ate here while vacationing in a rental home in Playa Flamingo. First off, we arrived at 6:00 to find there was no Sea Bass or Mahi Mahi that day. That eliminated 2 of the choices on a very limited menu. There was a seared tuna option that 2 of us ordered. However, even though lobster... More

Angelina's came highly recommended from our fishing charter Capt. Tom. he made reservations for me adn my wife their for Valentines day. Great place for that special dinner. I had the mixed seafood plate and my wife had the Surf & Turf. Both dishes were delicous. You have to try the Mango Pina Colada. The best drink we had their... More

We hit this upscale restaurant with $$$$ prices at 9:45pm and were well cared for. Attentive but not in your face service. Had an energetic, happy server who was passably bilingual. The food was divine. The BEST salads and the peach ricotta stuffed raviolis were decadent. We were visited by a drunken patron and after making sure he was not... More
