“Very lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We really enjoyed this meal. It could have been a bit spicier but that is our only complaint. The sauces were beautiful the preparation and presentation was excellent. The cocktails were superb, all in all, a very enjoyable meal.

“A delightful surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

We had tried going last March without success. It was closed when we finally found it. This year we found it easier thanks to the signage from Farmer's Market. A lovely meal with terrific service. The vegetable market is expensive and not as attractive as Flora's. An oddity was that they didn't seem to get the need for bread with the carb free meals (Vegetable Extravaganza and Mahi Mahi) we ordered.

“Everything Involved in Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Los Tamarindos describes itself as "Daily Market, Organic Farm, Cooking School & Restaurant" and they excel in almost every area. Owner/operator Enrique Silva embraces organic food and designs his menus to utilize his own current crops and those of his neighbors. The cooking school starts with a tour of the farm, featuring the importance of organic farming and moves to an outdoor kitchen area. Cooks tips abound as the participants enjoy hands-on for preparation and finishes by enjoying the plentiful lunch that they prepared. The lunch and dinner menus are the same, so lunch is recommend for the views and ease of travel.

“What a great afternoon we had here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We did the discussion on organic farming, went down to the farm itself, then came back up to the guest area/kitchen/restaurant and did our cooking class. We had a group of 7 + others who were there and everyone had a great time. Plus, the food was delicious. My kid was 13 and really enjoyed himself because he could participate. Smaller kids who couldn't participate probably would get very antsy during the organic farming discussions and the cooking.

We will go back next time we are in San Jose or Cabo. It's easily worth the drive over from Cabo.

“We would not recommend Ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We went to this place because of all the great reviews and boy, were we disappointed. We made the mistake of bringing our children, and this is NOT a child friendly Place! The experience left us speechless, and wondering who is writing all of the great reviews, Friends? Our kids were in danger, there are power lines and drop offs everywhere, they refused to make ANYTHING that the kids could eat, and even the goat stew we had was inedible. I would not recommend to families!

Lourdes K, Director de Relaciones Públicas at Organic Restaurant at Huerta Los Tamarindos, responded to this review, December 27, 2012
Dear Donna,
Thanks for coming to Los Tamarindos. We are so sorry about you experience in our restaurant. We had have many children at the place without problem. The food is for both, adults and children. The only thing is that we don't have another food out of the menu in the place. That is our concept. The reviews are written by people who enjoy to live a new experience, rounded of nature and freedom.
We'd like you to come again fot getting out the bad taste of our restaurant.
