“Truly a beach hangout to enjoy a beer and some fresh flavors.”
Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

FT's does a wonderful job of providing spacious and low-key dining ambience with some well crafted menu items. Their hot sauce is made fresh and does not disappoint. The fish burrito is huge, priced fairly and as tasty as could be and made with fresh sea bass. You get to choose the ingredients and I would advise getting it loaded. Definitely a spot you would consider eating at more than once during your stay. $2 cold beer is something I'm happy to mention also

“#1 in Tamarindo!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

We ate at FT's twice in one day during our 2 day stay in Tamarindo. We never heard about FT's until a nice couple suggested it when we were on our way to Coconut. Out first meal consisted of monster burritos for $6-7 and tico style steaks (with caramelized onions). The drinks were priced reasonably (ex. imperial $2-3) and the fruit smoothies were delicious. Their hot sauce was so good and addicting! We were trying to save money so as a result we ended up at FT's again for dinner. Luckily, it was taco Tuesday ($2) and 2 for 1 margaritas. They had the standard tacos with steak, chicken, shrimp, fish and the langy made with papaya & mango (chutney-like) salsa and fish. $2 per taco might be expensive for the locals but it was a great way to end our CR trip. We also had a couple of pura vida $1 shots - orange juice, grenadine, cacique (CR vodka). Wish there was a FT's in NYC!
