The BBQ Nachos here are amazing. I've had them with pulled pork and with brisket. Both were awesome. Max plays there live on Wednesdays and Sundays and he is amazing! Don't want to miss this place while in town.

I had breakfasts here almost every day while I stayed in Tamarindo. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were really good, and the portions were huge. Definitely try the breakfast quesadillas with pulled pork and the pancakes surrounded with fresh fruit. Yummy!
