“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Curry was delicious. My husband's steak and veggies were equally as good. Atmosphere is amazing. Definitely one of the "fancier" restaurants in town and not exactly a local's spot. Be advised, cash only. We would have ordered dessert or another pitcher of sangria but didn't realize the don't accept cards until we were already there.

“Best restaurant in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

In my opinion, the best restaurant in town. Dark, warm & cozy - great ambiance. The fillet mignon with gorgonzola sauce was fantastic as has been wells states in these reviews, even the potatoes on the side were fabulous. Also delicious was the polenta with roasted eggplant and vegetable sauce. Definitely make reservations, this is the hottest spot in town.

“Best date night spot in SJDS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

The food is excellent the ambiance is casual, eclectic and somehow elegant. This is my go to date night spot for my wife and I. We have never been disappointed. The sangria is delicious and dangerous.

“Absolutely a MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Colibri is a MUST if you are in San Juan Del Sur. The food is second to none, the atmosphere is great, and the service is the best. Try to make a reservation because they book up. And there's a reason for that!
