Great food. Everything is fresh. They make the best Key Lime pie you ever try. Both indoor and outdoor dining.

I stopped into the Shrimp Hole on my last night in Tama, I had walked past it so many times that I just had to stop in and I'm so glad I did! More than anything the sweet staff made the experience. They were very...attentive, friendly, and genuine! I wasn't too hungry so I just got the Banh Mi which was very flavorful, big shrimp, delicious bread, and the slaw was to die for! I also got some key lime pie to take home and that is a must! It was delicious! I definitely wish I had time to go back!!More

Love the Shrimp Hole. Off the beaten path just a little, with parking and quaint little seating areas. Service was faster than anywhere else we have eaten in Tamarindo and the food was delicious. Take a break from the crazy of the next block you...wont regret it.More

Wish I could have tried other dishes! We love what we had, even the kids. Get the house lemonade!!! If you don't like shrimp get fish as a substitute!!! Inexpensive high quality Cena (dinner) option

OK, not really sure why all the five-star reviews and I am a generous marker. Firstly portion sizes are tiny and prices over inflated for what you get. Food was not great, it was OK but bland nothing to write home about or to go...back too. So many more places in Tama that are much better food and cheaper.More

Stopped in for a fresh lunch on my visit into town to go to the bookstore. Shrimp hole is right next-door and I always make it a combo. The ginger lemonade was so refreshing! We started with a ceviche which was quite a large bowl...Served with patacones. I had the tuna all he bowl which was really delicious and he had the spicy shrimp dish and. The shrimp will never disappoints. And at night sometimes there’s live music and cocktails are delicious. The atmosphere inside and on the patio are both lovely. Try it on your trip to TamarindoMore

So we came to the Shrimp Hole to have some dinner and I tell ya what, wow. The food was amazing and the staff here are on point with customer service. We met the owner Tyler “Ty” who was there, what a great guy for...sure. If your in town here please go eat here you won’t be disappointed! Oh and the drinks here are very very good. We told Ty that we’d be back on out last night dinner, as we walked up with 2-other friends he called out all our names for the other night and made it seem like we were family! Thank you to Ty and staff...we will be back!!!!!More

JW is about 20 mins from town.. So you would have to take JW shuttle. When you are in Tamarindo definitely check it out!! It's great
