I came here 3 days in a row because they were showing NBA and the staff were super friendly. The bartenders Will and Bernardo made me never want to leave. Definitely recommend Sharks if your looking for a place to drink

Just like with all places in Tamarindo beware...alcohol is watered down like I have never seen in my life. Food was fine.

Sharkey's is a popular sports bar and night spot in Tamerindo. However, they also serve good food and ice cold beer. My personal favourite is the English style beer battered mahi-mahi fish and chips, however the hamburgers and chicken tacos are also delicious. This a small and crowded bar, so try lunch there or an early supper.

A group of us went in to Tamarindo for the night from Playa Conchal. It happened to be Karaoke night and we had a ton of fun. The place is PACKED, and with the Hostel next door it is a young crowd, but the bartenders were fast and we were fine standing and dancing. The street and sidewalks outside Sharky's... More

Our server left our table twice in the middle of ordering to go help other tables. I've never experienced such terrible service anywhere.

Early in the evening this was a sports bar with an older crowd. By 10 PM it was all twenty-somethings with high beat and hip-hop music thumping. Beer pong games were being played on four tables. The downside is that the place is somewhat small, and it was really jammed in the front area where the beer pong was being... More

We hunted this place out as we were looking for somewhere to watch the NFL game. The viewing for that was good, although the bar is quite small. They have large screen tv's and then smaller TVs dotted around so you can watch it throughout the bar, and outside. The drinks are reasonably priced, expensive compared to Brasilito where we...

Do not get their Thursday special which is a frozen mojito and which looks like a frozen disgusting slurpy is about to jump and attack you from the glass. And it tastes just the way it looks with zero alcohol. Tried their another 2 for 1 cocktail which was supposed to be pretty strong (in your dreams probably). After cocktails... More
