We loved it. All dishes were delicious. Smoothies are excellent. The takaki tuna was the highlight. A lot of breakfast options too, from continental to Mexican or Costa Rican. A bit slow in the evening but it was very ok for lunch. Very appropriate for groups of 8. Nice music. Would return again and again

We stopped here our first day for some drinks and to enjoy the beach view. The wait staff is very friendly. Their guacamole was some of the best I've ever had. I'd recommend the mahi mahi cooked in banana leaf. Absolutely delicious. The breakfast is very good as well, the fruit juice smoothie was refreshing and the super taco was... More

Spent the day here during our honeymoon ordering drinks and food and watching the beach. Costa Rica is HOT and they have a great place to pull up some chairs in the shade with a full view of the ocean. Delicious drinks and food to top it off!

This year, this seemed to be one of few places open for breakfast on the beach in Tamarindo. Well, actually up from the beach...apparently you aren't allowed to sit on any of the beach chairs for breakfast, so we had to move up into the main part of the restaurant. Ok. Breakfast is fairly affordable, but you have to stick... More

This place is right on the beach so it provides for a great ambiance but we thought the dinner was way over priced for what we got. It wasn't bad, it was just okay but ended up being one of the most expensive meals of the trip for just dinner and a few drinks. I'd highly recommend it for apps... More

I stopped in for breakfast one morning and had an excellent desayuno typico and delicious Costa Rican coffee with a beautiful ocean view. I highly recommend the Copacabana for its atmosphere and view and the good food.
