Family friendly, they even have a kids Filet Mignon. One of the owners came to ask us how the meal was, so nice! 5 minute walk off... More

Without question, Dragonfly Tamarindo is in my top 10 restaurants experiences.

Tamarindo is a very nice place and has a lot of mini restaurants but most of them are very informal. Definitely Diría Hotel Restaurants are a step ahead on service, cleanness and comfort. Dragonfly is a great example of it, we arrived for dinner and the restaurant was full. I ordered a Seafood soup and my brother a New York... More

I loved this place, and this was the best place my wife and I ate in Tamarindo. The atmosphere was fun, the waiting staff were very friendly. The portion sizes were very generous and the cocktails were delicious. Slightly on the more expensive for Tamarindo but would still highly recommend it.

Really great restaurant. Beautiful, romantic setting. Centro-american/Thai fusion cuisine. I had scrimps and tuna - and it was excellent. My husband was equally trilled with his food.

Live outside of Chicago, so we have more than our fair share of top dinning spots. You will not be disappointed in Roberto and his team. From the appetizers to desert, nothing will disappoint.
