Good food and the owners are wonderful people! The omelettes were very good and came with fruit, toast/jelly, juice and coffee. Also tried the breakfast sandwich and it was huge!

This restaurant is owned and managed by a Sicilian lady. They really know how to cook and serve pizzas and pastas. Also they have good sandwiches if you are looking for a quick bite. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very important : the room is air-conditionned !! Important added value in Tamarindo when it is 85/90 F... More

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.
