“Bar - Reggae Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We came here our first night out in Costa Rica. It was Friday and Reggae Night. So much fun! The place was dead until around 11PM and then was packed. Definitely recommend for a fun night out! Great dj, crowd, and vibe!

“Poor quality food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2012

My friend and I ate very poorly at Tabanuco. We had a plate of Mahi Mahi and a plate of chicken Carribean style, we ate 1 bite, paid the $20 bill ($30 with drinks) and left. When we expressed our disappointment to the manager he took no interest in our complaint or concerns over the freshness and poor taste of our meals. A real disappointment. There are a lot of other great restaurants on playa Samara, head to La Locanda for a ceviche or nachos instead! Same price much better quality.

“On the go..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

We ziplined with Wing Nuts and they recommended here. We were rushing out of town, on our way back to San Jose. Stopped and grabbed the mushroom and cheese quesadillos and a chicken sandwich! Perfect!!! Definitely recommend it!

My boyfriend and I found ourselves eating here a lot - we loved that it was right on the beach and their menu was pretty well rounded - also the service was great! I recommend it!
