“Excellent Ceviche”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2014

Had a hankering for ceviche and our host recommended Wild Panda. You can't go wrong with this ceviche. You can get shrimp, fish or mixed shrimp and fish. Have a mojito too while you're at it. Delicious food and good tunes!

Stopped in for a few cocktails and wound up staying most of the night! Junior, the owner, was very hospitable! We sat in the V.I.Panda section and had a blast! Drinks were amazing, vibe was incredible, definitely recommend visiting if you are staying in Tamarindo!!

“Wild Panda Rocks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

When in Tamarindo, you simply must visit Wild Panda. There have an all day happy hour of 2 for 1 watermelon vodkas or pineapple rum cocktails, made with fresh fruit and icy cold beer. They also serve great food and Bocas. Their seafood rice is superb! Junior the owner is always friendly, so too is Claudia behind the bar.

A visit to Tamarindo isn't complete without experiencing Wild Panda!

“The owner is very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We were walking by and the owner a very nice Costa Rican man offered us the 2 for 1 drink special. He made the drinks himself with fresh fruit, they were soooo good and then he chatted with us for about 20 minutes and even let us put on his panda head for a photo op!! Very cool little bar.

“Great drinks!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We were passing by the Wild Panda one evening after dinner, and a man out front (manager or owner?) asked us to try his happy hour (available all day) drinks. The deal for the night was Watermelon or Pineapple vodka cocktails. 2 for 1. There were 10 of us, and we were all thirsty, so why not? The drinks were made with fresh fruit, and tasted incredible. The waitress even put them in to go cups for us so we could continue on our way. We liked them so much, we came back later for more! The staff were friendly and accommodating. We meant to come back to try their meals, but we were too busy the rest of our stay. We will definitely try them next time!
