Went there for lunch the first day and the food was excellent. The waiter was extremely friendly and took the time to review the money exchanges, etc. He showed us surfing pics from his phone. He made us feel welcome on our first day.

Nice atmosphere and great food! We had breakfast here on our first day in Tamarindo and it didn't disappoint. Nice mix of traditional breakfast with some local flair. Our server even gave us an impromptu Spanish lesson. She seemed to be having as much fun...More
