“Hidden gem”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Once we found the place we were pleasantly surprised at the ambiance. Pool side cabanas, full bar, swimming pool, and delicious burgers! The owners and managers are French and are super friendly! Great place to spend the afternoon and evening just relaxing!

“Best Place Ever For a Beach Wedding - Love, Love, Love LBC”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

November 24th my wife and I got married at Langosta Beach Club and to say it was an amazing venue would be an under-statement. We had visited probably 20 places and each place left us feeling depressed that they just didn't "get" what we wanted to do and they treated us like a business. Well that changed the moment we met Arnaud and the staff at LBC. They were so friendly and enthusiastic about our wedding. Renting the condos across the street is a great idea if you have a special event, we took 7 of them and they were amazing. We basically didn't leave LBC for 4 days - it's a great place for family and friends to hang out. The drinks are amazing (Mai Thais!), the service is the best in Costa Rica and the FOOD. Oh man. My wife is a chef, so we are picky, but even for us the food blew us away. AMAZING.

The wedding itself was perfect, they reserved the club for us and let us have free reign the entire day. Their staff even posed for photos with us during the party! They were helpful and the cost was not too much.

Honestly, if you're looking for a wedding location in Costa Rica, Langosta Beach Club should be on your visit list. They will blow you away. We will always be thankful for the kind people, the gorgeous scenery and the tremendous service. We will go back as many times as our little beat up car will allow us.

100% Recommended.

“Olivie is a delight! Food was great!”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

We stopped for drinks with the intent to come back for dinner. We enjoyed rselves so much that we just stayedbthrough the evening. The lobster is straight from the tank and you wwnt fin a better one anywhere in the town my brother had tuna and saidit was delicious. We als tried some type of deviled crab appetizer that was very good. Within walking distance of town, but it is a dusty road unless yiu arrive from the beach side Great atmosphere at bar and tables are around pool looking out to ocean. A little pricwy, but yiu do get great quality.

“Great for lunch or dinner”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Our group of 6 had dinner in 1 of the cabanas on our 2nd night in Tamarindo. Arnaud and his staff were phenomenal to us, both the meal and the service was spot on. This dinner was one of the highlights of our trip to Costa Rica. I am not a seafood eater and I was very pleased with my menu options. We also had lunch here another day and sat out towards the water. Another great meal and service - really enjoyable experience both times. Highly recommend...

“Very nice lunch in a beautiful location”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We visited in November 2012 while staying in a B&B, whose owners recommended Langosta Beach Club for lunch. We sat right on the beach, feet in the sand, watching the sea. The location is beautiful and atmosphere very relaxed.

The lunch was really nice - we had a hamburger and french fries, and the hamburger especially was great.

The service was really slow though - after we got served lunch the waiter stopped paying attention to us. We ordered another beer and when it didn't arrive after 15 minutes of waiting I had to go to the bar area myself to get it.

For a fee of 10 dollars per person we could have stayed at the beach club and relaxed on their loungers and use the swimming pool, however, we preferred just walking on the beach itself.

Overall a nice place to have a relaxed lunch.
