Fancy to basic Italian food in an open outdoor setting with the feel of a family restaurant. Service was great and we enjoyed our dining experience.

The bruschetta was well presented and although I prefer mine with a bit more garlic bite it was delightful. But hold onto your hat or the carbonara will blow it away. Nicely done La Pachange! And the décor and ambiance was very elegant and clean - I highly recommend eating here if you are in or near Tamarindo. I will definitely be back for more many times over ;)

My 8yo daughter and I had dinner here on our last night in town. The staff were simply amazing and made the meal a fun and special experience for us.

The evening began with my daughter's fruit smoothie: They offered three different flavors, but when my daughter couldn't decide, they created a combination of flavors for her. Our waiter taught her to order the smoothie in Spanish, teaching her the names for the different fruit ingredients.

For our meals, my daughter had the shrimp tagliatelle, which was delicious. The pasta is all home-made, and I was surprised that there was so much fresh shrimp in her meal. I ordered a pizza, and while my plan was to take half of it home for the rest of the family, it was so good that we ended up eating most of it there.

I can't say enough how friendly and attentive the staff were at La Pachanga. We will definitely be back!

We walked by this restaurant for a whole week before dining there tonight. Outstanding! The bruschetta was the best we ever had. My wife had the spinach ante cheese ravioli with the butter and sage sauce. I had the tagliatelle with the fish sauce. Wow! Both were outstanding. As good as any meal if not better than any meal we've had in Costa Rica over the last 2 weeks. Great service too,

My husband had the mahi mahi special and I had the homemade pasta special with vodka rose'
sauce. We shared the dishes and everything was so yummy we are going back before we leave. The prices there were very reasonable. Just note only the specials use homemade pasta. There is a lot of specials to choose from. You will not be disappointed with this restaurant.
