“Amazing fresh food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

This restaurant had only outdoor seating with fresh, farm to table food from a fram that was right around the corner. They did not have small, hand-held menus, but instead, a large chalk board with the entire selection. As we were looking at the menu, one of the chefs came out to tell us the specials. When he was finished, he offered to give us a tour of his kitchen! We ended up getting a family style meal, offered by the main chef. The food was great, the service, fast and the atmosphere was spectacular. It was so good, we ended up going back at the end of our trip!

“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.
