Just ate lunch here today. The decor, staff, food, coffee, music and whole vibe are just perfect. A welcome difference to the many overpriced and underwhelming places on the waterfront.
The Tacos here are superb, this is definitely a place you could linger for an hour or 2.
Great value, vibe and food.
Definitely recommended.

Well, I learned the secret to great health in Tamarindo - eat your vegetables at breakfast. I had breakfast at Green Papaya multiple days for the sole purpose of having the tasty salad with the Green Papaya Breakfast. I also loved the tropical tea and the ginger lemonade. Everything was so tasty and fresh. My sister loved the coffee. We were originally directed tot he Green Papaya for coffee by another shop owner and it was well worth the walk.

Thanks to a tripadvisor review, 4 of us visited this restaurant for supper. The location is down a dimly lit gravel road, so your not sure if your going the right way in the dark! What a treat this place is!

The outdoor area is flanked by swings that sit up against a seating area, very original, additional seating outside as well as inside in the air conditioned area.

Mojitos and beers were refreshing and food was fresh and tasty, while affordable. Would definately return!

One of our best meals while in Tamarindo! Fresh fish taco was awesome and service was quick! Worth checking out-it is very close to downtown.

Loved this place! Right near our hotel in Tamarindo. I am vegan and they had options for me. My friend had the black bean burger and loved it and I tried the veggie tacos. They are HUGE and come on a homemade flour tortilla! Great flavor and homemade chili sauce. Great service and atmosphere. Also had a delicious homemade ginger lemonade! Yum!
