“This view is worth 2 million dollars”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I am in love with this place, once you enter the gate you will be impressed by the simple but great architecture of the main building. The best is the view of the Tamarindo estuary, flowing into the ocean, the view of Playa Grande and the end of Tamarindo Beach. I went first for lunch and returned afterwards for dinner. Both of the clients I took there where impressed with the food quality and the array of new flavors experienced. Select your piece of fish from the fresh fish exhibition and enjoy some of the best Kinoa salad ever.

“Outstanding in every way!!!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Costa Rica a dozen times, this was the best dining experience we've ever had. Spectacular setting on the beach, excellent service, and innovative, delicious food. Prices are very moderate, especially for the quality and originality of the menu items. Everything was great, but save room for dessert!

“Best Restaurant in Guanacaste. . . maybe Costa Rica”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

My family and I have been coming to Costa Rica (specifically Tamarindo/Brasilito area) for 6 years now and this is by far the best meal we have ever had. The staff were conversational and amazingly warm. The restaurant is on corner of the beach, so it is virtually empty at sundown. The views were amazing. Food was amazing and very reasonable. I had an amazing tenderloin served on a volcanic rock. . . all for $20. The deserts were all fantastic, but especially the Mango Crumble. A must visit if you are in the area. Seriously considering going again this trip. The combination of the people, food and atmosphere all make for an unbelievable experience.

“Best in Tamarindo”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This place is the best restaurant in tamarindo. We had a party of 8, no reso, and they fit us in and showed us an amazing time. The food was fantastic and the drinks superb. For anyone that like Manhattans (ours with Canadian Rye), they make the best in town.

“Fantastic dinner in Tamarindo !!!!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Our family enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Pangas Beach Club tonight.
the mussels were perfect, the lobster fabulous and the steak served on a searing hot stone slab soft as butter.
The Pangas Beach Club is a beautiful beach front restaurant . Romantic candle lit dinner with a fantastic band playing on Sunday nights. for sure the top restaurant out of all the restaurants in Tamarindo.
Familly dinner or a Romantic Date, you can't go wrong with Pangas !!!
