“Amazing Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

The presentation of the tuna tartar appetizer was stunning, and it was delicious. The Mahi Mahi "special" was also really tasty. The prices were low and the food was really great!

“Great Bar/Restuautrant/Staff and bartender Jonathan.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

I have not been back to CR for over 25 years. My fiancée and I decide to check out Tamaindo for surfing and other fun staff. This was our last stop in CR. Our first night in town we were looking for a nice happy hour bar by the beach. There seemed to be lots of them, so picking one was tough. We did try several places; however, one place truly felt like your home town bar, and that was Njbbana beach bar and restaurant. The bar was rocking and playing two of my favorite musicians Jimmy Buffett and IZ.

On our three nights in Tamarindo, we spent our happy hours at Njbbana beach bar and restaurant because of the staff and our favorite bartender Jonathan. We also meet several nice folks at the bar while just chilaxing. I would truly recommend this place and don't forget to say hi to Jonathan the bartender. Awesome service, clean establishment and great bartenders.

“Great entertainment, so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

We strolled into the restaurant because they had beach access and live music which were both great. The food and drinks were just OK. There are better options for food.

“Great steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We tried Nibbana on our last night in Tamarindo and were not disappointed. You can sit on the beach or in a more indoor setting. We chose the beach, which was nicely lit and had a lively atmosphere. The menu offered a great selection including steaks, seafood, pasta and salads. My ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and brought to the table piping hot. The vegetables and potatoes were also fantastic and seasoned with fresh garlic. The grilled chicken salad was just what we expected. The lettuce was fresh and crisp. Try the bloody beer _ a mix of tomato juice, worcesteshire (sp?), lime juice and beer. It is a tangy tasty treat. Maybe the only drawback, like many restaurants on the beach, were the no see-ums/mosquitoes. They weren't unbearable, but for a more enjoyable experience, apply repellent before you go.

“Fancy Drinks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

If you ever wanted to drink out of a coconut or a pineapple, this is the place. Fun! Just don't eat there. The food is awful. Saving Grace...it is right on the beach!

Thanks for your comments. We appreciate you stopping in and we are glad you enjoyed the drinks and the beach! Visitors come from all around the world just to have a coconut drink on our beach...
Sorry to hear about your meal, As a destination location for many travelers, we pride ourselves on the best menu, service, and quality in Costa Rica-as is evidenced by the vast majority of our reviews. Although we are not perfect, we ALWAYS make it right if we are informed--one way or another. If you are in town again, we would love the opportunity to see you again.
