This restaurant is a great place to eat Mediterranean food not just in Tamarindo. The owners are Israelis and they know what they serves! The Greek salad and the masabaha were amazing! The right food to eat after a long day at the beach.

Pleasant, kind owners and operators. Nice shaded deck space, Food was very good and menu had a variety of Mediterranean choices. Set back away from hustle and bustle of downtown Tamarindo, highly recommend, would go back again.
