Great place

This is one of the best casual restaurants in Tamarindo. Great ambience, excellent service and even better food. Pizzas are great and desserts are really good. Try flan con dulce de leche and Natalia's brownie, you won't regret it. Everybody was very accommodating here, the place is really nice... read more

We absolutely loved this restaurant.. Smoothies, pizzas and pastas were fabulous. They even had fries for my picky eaters that they loved. We tried to go back our last night (Sunday) but unfortunately they were closed. Highly recommend going to this restaurant just off the main street towards Playa Langosta. Fantastic!

The service here is always great no matter how busy they are. They have very friendly staff and a nice relaxing environment. Last night I ordered the Arugula and Prosciutto Pizza. The pizza was average, not bad and not fantastic. It seemed a little light on the cheese, the crust was a little soft and doughy in the middle and... More

Our girls loved the fresh pineapple smoothie. We ordered the Daniel and arugula/prosciutto pizza, both yummy! Service was attentive and our 11 year old enjoyed the swing set;) Sure bet.

You can truly tell this is a labor of love. The owners truly appreciate good, fresh food and this is what they delivered. Greens were so fresh ( not an easy feat in Costa Rica ). Service was outstanding!

We really loved it here. We came in later one night and got a pizza and some wine. It had been a long day and it was a really nice place to sit back and relax! You'd never know you were right at a busier intersection once you get inside the seating area. Playground for kids too!

We all got pizza and it was the best pizza I have ever had! The Daniel was my favorite. Definitely a must try; the overall experience is excellent!

We were hungry for pizza so we stopped here. The pizza was really good, but the Chicken Quesadilla was the best we ever had! You have to try the Caipiroska cocktail....tastes just like lemonade!

This restaurant is awesome. The menu is diverse and the food is outstanding. Whether it's pizza, a burger, or shrimp tacos, it's all insanely good. So this is a must visit restaurant as I've never been disappointed. I rent my house in Langosta and have put this restaurant on the top of the list of places to eat. Just outstanding.... More
