Our group of 8 all enjoyed our meals beginning to end. Yummy cocktails too that are unique. There was live music that night (Wednesday) which was fantastic. Restaurant is open air and has great vibe. Highly recommend! Will be back next year when we visit!

We had planned on going for dinner here for one night but ended up coming here on back to back evenings. The cocktails were amazing. The appetizers were on point and quite tasty. Try the tuna tartare. It's outrageous. For my main I had the red snapper. The mix of freshly caught fish, bed of orzo and fresh organic vegetables... More

We came in with a group of nine and were easily accommodated. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. He gave us a great run down of the specials. We started with drinks ranging from fruity cocktails to a local IPA. I was especially excited by the fact the fruity drinks were not overly sweets. We had the tempura shrimp appetizer... More

We went here for dinner and it was very good! My boyfriend had the seafood dish & I had the Buddha bowl, both were very filling and tasty! We also shared the churro and ice cream dish. This was one of the more expensive meals we had while in Tamarindo (about 70$ Canadian) but definitely a great treat!

My wife and I have dined here twice-- once in a group of four, and another in a group of 8. Both times we seated promptly-- the menu is fresh and has good variety! The drinks-- a mojito and the 'Dragonfly Refresher' were excellent! My wife and I had the Thai Beef and the Filet and both were excellent! Great... More

Very nice quiet restaurant with attentive staff. Service was fast and courteous. We did not eat a large meal but what we did have was good. The blackberry mojito was excellent

During our stay in Tamarindo Diria hotel , we went to Dragonfly restaurant for dinner (party of 4). I would consider it like average restaurant through so many in Tamarindo. Tuna ( appetizer)& grill snapper ( main course) was amazing, but the rest dishes was not that tasty. Meat was chewed, not tenderloin at all. Service was very poor, we've... More

Thank you for sharing your review. We are glad to read that you enjoyed the tuna tartare and the whole snapper, yet regret to hear that you did not enjoy the rest of the dishes and that the beef was not tender. We are also disappointed to hear the details of your service and will discuss all of your comments... More

Excellent service paired with fabulous food - don't miss it! Highly recommend the yellow fin tuna. Favourite for locals so I knew it wouldn't disappoint and it didn't - one of the best restaurants in Tamarindo

Delicious dinner! Decided to come here after reading the reviews. Had the chicken and steak and they were superb. 2 adults and 3 kids in our party and we had an app, 2 beers and 2 adult entrees and 3 kid entrees. Bill ended up being $98. So it was very good, but expensive as well.
