Colibri is known for its steaks. Wish I could review them. Instead, we had caught a bunch of mahi mahi and yellow fin tuna and had them cook them for use. Very inventively and deliciously prepared, in a variety of ways. We started with tuna...More

Restaurant is the best! Coming from NYC haven't found a beat to their meat quality! Their free bread and dressing is a killer…

Dinner here is a fantastic experience. Watch them cook your dinner to perfection on an open pit. Steaks, kabobs, shrimp, are superb. Definitely a highlight to our trip and visiting Playa Puerto Carillo.

we live in Playa San Miguel, de Bejuco and would love to come for a dinner with friends. My husband eats fish but no other meat. Is there anything that he can eat? I am unable to find a menu on line so far. Thank you.
