You have to checkout longboards when you are in Tamarindo! It’s a great place to watch the games with a plate of BBQ and a cold beer in hand!

We stopped in for dinner and the food was good for a quick inexpensive meal. The decor is cute and the staff is friendly. I actually prefer to eat breakfast here which is very good.

Last year, we went to Longboards twice because the fish tacos were so good and my boyfriend loved the brisket. This year, I hate to say it wasn’t as good. The fish tacos were tasteless and didn’t have enough slaw. The brisket was ok but...More

The only thing better than the food is the staff that works there! I traveled to Tamarindo solo from Alaska, and they made feel as if I were a local.
