This place should probably be ranked #1 in Tamarindo. I went there last week for the second time, and it was amazing! It is the perfect place for a romantic meal.

More upscale than the taco restaurants but still not stuffy. Food , service, drinks, atmosphere were all delightful. Probably our nicest meal in a week of great eating!

We had dinner here last night and it was a fantastic evening. Great setting and service. Very flavorful food. Each plate that we had from appetizers to dessert had something unique about it. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant. The owner was highly visable during our night, coming to check on us and make sure everything was good.... More

An incredible evening for myself, husband & three children. Food was exceptional. We didn't have a reservation: they could have easily told us no, however were super accommodating & sat us immediately. The chief was incredible & can over to our table as well to see if we enjoyed our food. The service was fantastic - everyone was very friendly.... More

Another place where we showed up with a party of 8 (4adults & 4kids) and were met with great meals, great drinks & great service all around. Interesting entrees and ambiance to make for a magical vibe. We will always come to Dragon Fly at every visit to Tamarindo.
