A great little local restaurant with yummy food and drinks. The price was right and the service was adequate. This was a good find in the Tambor area and better than the pricey restaurant in the hotel we were staying at.

If you find yourself in the Tambor area, you really must try the H&B restaurant! We had three meals here, a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner and each was a delight. Ask for the "birders breakfast" - a true hearty Costa Rican breakfast named for the birders who arrive from the trail behind the hotel. (BTW, we did this... More

Of all the places I have eaten in Costa Rica this has to be my favorite. The restaurant and lodge is owned by a local family and the chef is one of the best in the country. You will not regret stopping at this place and having a bite to eat. The prices are modest and the service is excellent.... More

We've dined at H&B virtually every time we've been to Tambor in the past three years, so probably about 6-8 meals. Very clean, with excellent service. Seafood casado in particular is excellent and always fresh. Wine is not overpriced as you find in many restaurants and the beer is ice cold. Always seem to have 2 to 3 specials which... More

Very friendly staff and the meals were very good. Just my husband and I for dinner - we both ordered appetizers and a main course and both had dessert for around $60 dollars including the taxes and tip. A quiet (except for some occasional traffic noise), very clean and well kept place that also has a small hotel attached. The... More

I have always enjoyed my meals at HyB. The New Years special menu was outstanding and the service delightful. While we only visit once a year, we are always welcomed as if we live in Tambor.

Nice food and friendly service. It was at the end of the season so we were probably two of a handful of customers all day but still there was service with a smile. Have seafood for sure - you can't get much fresher than here!

The food in this simple restaurant is really amazing: very good quality and service, very nicely dressed - it seems that they learned the business from Tango Mar which is managed by a Belgium women and which hotel has a high European standard both in food and in rooms. Very reasonable price also. Definitively woth going, don't let the simple... More
