Ok, I haven’t tried all the Casado in town, but Eat at Joe’s is the favorite of what I have tried. The chicken is perfectly marinated and the salad is fresh with big ripe tomatoes. I have tried to replicate this dish at home and...More

Tough to review. Seating great for the beach. Service typical CR: initially there, never to be seen again. Food- pretty bad. Mosquitos were ferocious. If you have a choice, keep walking to another joint.

We ate here on our first night in Tamarindo. We didn't have a clue where to go, so we randomly picked this place as we were walking down the street. The happy hour drinks were huge - 2/1, but the cups seemed larger than that....More
