My family and I ate here on our recent vacation. The pizza is absolutely delicious; the best pizza we found in Tamarindo. The location is perfect and we ate under a wide tent on the actual beach front with a nice breeze and gorgeous view. The drinks are 2 for 1 during happy hour and they do take credit cards.

Went to Nibbana with friends during our vacation in Tamarindo. We loved the restaurant on the beach and the liveliness of the surroundings. We would rate the food as average, but one highlight was the entertainment. Costa Rican fire dancers performed and we also enjoyed the singer who played guitar. This is a spot you will want to go to... More

Good food, but check out the Caesars! Being a Calgarian, Nibbana's Caesars were picture worthy and delicious.

This was recommended by our hotel and it was very nice. You sit outside and the sunset view is perfect and the crowd lively.

This bar is fantastic. All the staff and management can't be beat. I can hardly wait to go back and see them all again. The cutest guys in Costa Rica. Miss you so much. Hugs and kisses.

On our last night we ate dinner at Nibbana and they failed to tell us prior to dining that they did not accept credit cards. Since it was our last night, we were out of enough cash to pay for the entire check, and would not have dined there knowing this. They claimed their credit card machine was broken. This... More

We ate at Nibbana this evening with friends and had a great experience! An order of Italian farfalli pasta was delicious with a tangy home made red sauce loaded with lean and smoky prosciutto and follows of fresh mozzarella made my remaining. The equally succulent seafood pasta ordered by my companions was loaded with lobster, shrimp and mahi-mahi. Our server,... More

We took our friends out to Nibbana's in April for a farewell dinner and we all had different drinks and different dinner choices but we were all very pleased with the quality and the service. The bonus was the great live musical entertainment while dining and the fire show that followed, right on the beach of beautiful Tamarindo, great sunsets... More
