Restaurant in Tamarindo for a rehearsal/welcome dinner

Hi Folks,

About 60 of us will be in Tamarindo at the Playa Langosta for my wedding in November. My folks would like to have a welcome reception/dinner for all of our friends and family. Beachfront would be nice, but I understand that accomodating 60 people may be a bit difficult for local resteraunts. Any suggestions???

Are there any catering companies that could do a beach BBQ or something like that??

Thanks for the help!!!!

You can try Sunset catering, they did a marriage celebration (3rd time's the charm) 2 years ago that I attended, and the food was very fresh, lite, and typically Caribbean/Mexican/Costa Rican fusion rpmvacationrentals.com/restaurants/sunsetcat…

and here http://www.tamarindo.com/sunset-catering/

I hope you have a great celebration on a perfect beach.

You could try Nibbana, the El Coconut, or Dragonfly. Nibbana is right on the beach; Coconut is across the street from the beach and DragonFly is a few blocks off the beach but all 3 of those would be able to accommodate that number of people.

I know this might sound like an off the wall suggestion, but what if you held a welcome/reception Sunset Catamaran cruise? With that many people you might be able to privately charter the Marlin Del Rey catamaran for about the same cost as a restaurant.... I think that would make for an unforgettable and very Costa Rican style celebration!!!

Contact the Beach Club at Reserva Conchal. They do wedding receptions there all the time, and its right on the beach. I am sure they could handle 60.

We had our rehearsal dinner for 70 people at El Pescador and it was alot of fun. The new owner is great and the food was delicious. Our wedding planner, Jamie from Tropical Events by Jamie also arranged for live music and a fire dancing performance. The night was simply spectacular!
