About
The Shrimp Hole, casual seafood restaurant with the sunny deck, situated only one block from the beautiful beach of Tamarindo. This tropical 'hole in the wall' style restaurant serves a simple but mouth watering menu. We use sustainably farmed shrimp and the freshest seafood you can find in Costa Rica. We also serve Catch of the Day, Ceviche, Poke and other seasonal seafood from our internationally inspired menu. If you are not a big seafood fan, we have some Chicken options for you too! You can grab your food to go and stroll down to the beach to watch the waves or sit on our sunny deck and watch the world go by or choose our new indoor restaurant seating and experience the best seafood dining

Try it, you'll love it! The food and staff were wonderful. There's inside and outside seating. The menu isn't huge, but there's something for everyone. We even had some key lime pie...Yummy

Fantastic find just a few minutes from the beach. Cool little spot and the food was amazing. We had the tuna poke and they made one custom shrimp poke for my daughter. One of the best meals we’ve had this week in Costa Rica.

Nice restaurant in Tamarindo. We ordered the shrimp curry dish and a couple of beers. The shrimp were cooked and spiced perfectly. The beers were cold too. Nice wait staff and fun location with a fair price.

Most memorable meal in Tamarindo beach by far. We planned to go somewhere else nearby but stopped here instead because of how cute it is. And the food was even better. We both had the classic Shrimp Hole plate and it was absolutely delicious. The...More
