Massimo loves to chat up his patrons. The food was very tasty. Massimo and Gia gave us some tips on where to buy fresh fish. What gems!

Being our first visit to Tamarindo, the breakfast here is a great value. Which include juice and any coffee you wish Espresso and Cappacino included. The owners are very active and welcoming. Indoor and outdoor seating. They make their own breads on site also. You will not be disappointed.

Buon Apetito is a friendly little cafe in the heart of downtown Tamarindo. The cafe is owned by an Italian couple and features a selection of great itilian Gelato as well as some quality sandwiches, etc. The prices are very reasonable and the environment is very friendly. A Great stop if you need an espresso or maybe have a taste... More

The homemade feel is evident and the love the woman puts into the place if felt when she welcomes and serves you. Food is great and it's less than 50 yards from the sand.
