“Food is good, awful service!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

I have had the breakfast and lunch items, and both were good. The service is awful and the female servers are NOT friendly or helpful whatsoever. I had a long hair in my water, but rarely saw the server to get a hairless water till our food came out 30 minutes later.

“Reasonably priced food, that is excellent!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

We ate here a couple of times during our stay - great food, great prices. All food was really well prepared and they weren't mean with the portions! Very friendly staff. They are little off the beaten track (ie not right on the main road through Tamarindo) but only a little way off and certainly worth finding.

“Quiet Dinner at the bar”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Good food, cooked fresh. Friendly bartenders. Have the fish tacos. Delicious! Tour guides and tourists alike were enjoying this spot, which is a little off the beaten path, but just a block from the village.

Reviewed January 25, 2013

Looking for tacos and margaritas at lunch and they still weren't serving. Very average and no atmosphere.

“Love Khahiki!”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Khahiki was just down the road from where we were staying and we visited many times over the course of the week. The food was good, service friendly, and prices reasonable. Just outside is a tree that is often full of playful monkeys. Khahiki is good Tican food and we recommend it!
