About
OPEN ALL YEAR ROUND for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and inspired by the brilliantly colored, blue songbird of the tropical forests of Central and South America, COTINGA at The Tamarind is truly a haven of peace and beauty. The restaurant is sprawled between a central courtyard that overlooks the hotel's beautiful natural garden. With a seating capacity of 50, guests have the option of dining indoors as well as al fresco. Very large TV screens make watching games so much more fun . There is an indoor and an outdoor bar serving the choicest drinks. Our fresh juices and smoothies are not to be missed. We serve special coffee, including Illy (spanish coffee)and fresh Tamarind Tea.
