Description: Smilin' Dog Taco Stop se encuentra el camino a playa Langosta abierto desde 1999 dentro de una atmósfera rústica y típica en el día o mas elegante por la noche.Nuestra posición nos beneficia al estar a un paso de tamarindo y a la vez siendo el primer restaurant viendo desde playa Langosta.Nos ubicamos en una zona muy protegida al estar un poco alejados del centro de Tamarindo y teniendo dos manglares alrededor, es fácil estar comiendo y poder ver monos, iguanas, mapaches, aves, etc.Nuestro pastelero, todas las mañanas, amasa las famosas Tortillas de harina de trigo que tanto nos caracterizan.La propuestra del chef se define como comida mexicana fresca y saludable donde imperan elementos orgánicos y oriundos de la region.Ofrecemos Ceviche del dia, Nachos, Ensaladas como entradas y de pricincipales tenemos una gran variedad de Burritos, Quesadillas, Fajitas y Tacos.No pierdas la oportunidad de conocer a sus dueños … ellos se encargaran de hacerte sentir cómodo!

“Their food was great and thier prices were great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

This is a fun place to eat, if your driving towards playa Langosta the Taco Stop is right on your left hand side of the road right past the Super 2001. They have a great menu, great food and very friendly service. I would suggest stopping in for a shrimp of fish taco if you ever have the chance.

“Eh - used to be great. Now not so much.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012 via mobile

This place used to be great (delicious and cheap - and free wifi!). Now it's under new management and the food is more expensive and not as good. I won't be back. Bummer. Tamarindo could really use a super cheap, casual lunch spot after a day at the beach.

Yes, we are a new management, we have a new and extensive menu.Most of our product are organics and high quality so our rates race ten porcent more than you probably used to pay before.Tamarindo is changing every year and we have to adjust to people is looking.
I hope you can come another time and have a better experience with us!

“fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Ate at this restaurant twice while on surf trip and the food was excellent, the shrimp burritos were off the charts, and the place was a great open air eatery with excellent ambience.
