I visited this place with my girlfriend. I got the fajitas and my girlfriend got the quesdilla. Both dishes were pretty good but a little pricey at about $10 USD each, bit more expensive than your average place in Montanita. We got a waffle after which was tasty. The place is general has a good vibe to it and the... More

We were in Montanita for 6 days and out of those we ate here 5 times. I was really pleased to have been able to order food other than pizza/pasta/salad even those were available!

Everytime I stay in Montañita, my first visit is in the restaurant. We start with coffee and waffles and end up with the dinner. The stuff is very friendly and their is a good range of food for "normal" Montañita-prices. the best day to go is saturday, because all the street-artists are performing right in front of the Tiki-Limbo

The food was decent and had a good presentation, but boy did we wait to get it. We received our food after about an hour and half (1.5 hours, yikes!!!) after ordering. We asked about our food after 45 minutes and the waiter said we had three tables still ahead of us. If we weren't hungry at the start, we... More

I've come here with both family and friends, and we've had a great time. Servers are super friendly and the atmosphere great. Cocktails are VERY strong and cheap. The food is good, diverse and comes in big portions. It gets quite busy so you might have difficulty finding a table (or bed, since some of their tables are actual beds).... More

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!

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
