“Beach front dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The whole menu is amazing. The food is fresh and prepared very well. The setting on the beach has great views. If you can go at sunset it makes it even better.

“Reasonable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

MY wife and I went here expecting it to be great and it was ok but not amazing. The Red snapper that I had was good, however my wife ordered lobster risotto and we think it may have been shrimp that came instead based on the texture of it. We had a good evening but we're not sure if we would return next time we are in Tamarindo.

“ok? si?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

some food was really good and some so-so But it had just under gone a new ownership. The Costa Rican Mariachis were great and the nice touch at end of the dinner with the local alcohol with coconut water shot. Great space, hope the food gets more even out

“Best food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

It's one of the best place to have a drink/dinner in Tamarindo. Mike, the new owner, pays a lot of attention to his customers, he's a great guy! We have been here many times, and we've always loved everything we order. This is a hot spot...and very romantic!
