Tikilimbo is almost on the busiest corner of Montanita during the high season, if you can get a table - keep it. During low season they offer %50 percent off on many dishes - ask, it can sometimes be misleading. As far as food - they have a little bit of everything - Italian, American, tourist version of comida typica,... More

Thank you for your review. Tiki Limbo is indeed the place to be seen right on the most representative block in town. Our menu is defined as global flavors and comida tipica is present in some seafood dishes. Besides that, we are more on the international flair and some recipes reflect our passion for particular ingredients. Regarding discounts,maybe you are... More

Took a while to cook. I was the only patron. But I didn't mind. The food was prepared well and very tasty. I went for a classic burger which didn't disappoint. Prices were very reasonable and staff were friendly!

I would highly recommend eating at this place. I can't really recommend a certain dish, because they all are excellent. You will not be sorry. Whether you want a taste... More

As far as i understand, wifi and coffee are the main draws. I ordered the apple cinnamon waffles. It is bready (not light and fluffy like a waffle should be) with a sprinkle of cinnamon and paper-thin slices of apple and steawberry with carmelized apple. Skip it. I wasted 7 bucks. My friend ordered eggs and bread that comes with... More
