Reasonably priced (not easy to find in Tamarindo) open air restaurant. Chicken is cooked on a rotisserie in a brick oven. Very tender and flavorful. Nice local Costa Rica options.

The shrimp fried rice--Latin dish, not Chinese--was really delicious, as was everything on the plate! I would go back! Atmosphere was very nice as well. It was pretty empty when I went for a late lunch, but the service was pretty good.

The food here was great. They had something everyone in our family liked, even our finicky 9 year old. A lot of places in Tamarindo are packed with drunk college kids, but this place was great for the family and it had a nice atmosphere where we could linger over dinner and not have to fight to be heard over...
