“An intimate setting and an eclectic but high quality menu.”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

This place offers delicious meditarian food, away from the main strip. This place has options for meat lovers and vegitarians alike, as well as people who want something exotic or a local dish. The atmosphere caters to both couples and larger parties. The service was excelent, the amicable and interesting owner Mary Jane was quite nice. Bring cash as they do not accept credit cards. Some of the best food you will find in SAN JUAN DEL SUR.

“My favorite restaurant in San Juan del Sur”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

My husband & I have been to SJdS 5 times now. We've eaten at El Colibri at least once each visit. The atmosphere is beautiful, the food is the best in town, and the beers are always cold. I love the filet with gorgonzola cheese. It is better than anything I've had in the states. My husband is adventurous and tries something new each time, and has never had anything that he didn't like. The staff has been well trained, and checks on you to make sure your meal meets with your approval. This is a class restaurant in a casual beach town!

“Great food”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

The food was great - this place would be a culinary delight in any cosmopolitan city. This isn't a place for local cuisine though if that's what you are looking for. We went all out for a great meal and were not disappointed. The place is charming. There isn't a lot of seating, so be sure to make reservations as we did. However, you do pay more - it cost us around $30/person including tax and tip (we ordered sangria, an appetizer to share amongst three, an entree each, and 2 desserts to share) whereas in town, you can get a great meal for $10/person.
