Darling place a bit off the beaten path . . . so immaculately clean and friendly. Watch out -- huge portions -- we wished we had split ours. If you ask for a taco you get a plate with two . . . not a complaint at all -- just a lot of food. Great lattes, salads, friendly staff and owner. Swings to sit on at tables are fun for kids.

I came here for the fish tacos during my Tamarindo visit. The decor is kinda nice with the swings and wood carved furniture. The food itself is average. I had the fish tacos which came out nice and flavorful however just a bit too clunky to grab and eat. I think maybe if the fish chunks were a tad smaller it would go better on the taco without just falling off and half your meat is on a plate.

Was here for lunch and ordered the beef tacos and ginger lemonade. The avocados and the cabbage in the tacos were so fresh and tasty. The beef was seasoned properly too and was so juice and tender. The service was fast and friendly. They have a good selection of caffeinated drinks too. I couldn't resist but get an iced latte to go. The swing-seats outside is a nice touch. Another must-try when in Tamarindo.

The only burrito option has cream cheese in it? What? I'm a pretty adventurous diner, but I felt like this could be made a little more user friendly.

The service was great and the atmosphere was really great. It threw us off that they said you shouldn't drink the tap water because everything we'd read about Tamarindo said the tap water was fine.

This is a must when you are in Tamarindo. The place is cute and very clean and the food is delicious! Definitely try the shrimp and mahi mahi tacos. We also ate there for breakfast and it was tasty!
