Great food and appetizers. Sitting almost on the beach. Great service and friendly iguana. Awesome service.

Beautiful view and setting under a stunning tree. OK if you want burgers and fries, but my ceasar salad was inedible, and they don't make delicious fresh fruit drinks or smoothies like other places in Tamarindo.

This is part of the Tamarindo Diria Beach Resort hotel with buffet style meals. Has the unibiquous thatched roof to give that tropical attitude and the multiple ceiling fans help with the opressive humidity. Breakfast is very uninspiring: rubberly scrambled eggs, bullet-hard sausage bits and...More

This oceanfront restaurant is in the Tamarindo Diria. Since it is outside, the birds and squirrels are present, but add a welcome presence, not an obnoxious one. Wonderful ceviche, very good chicken, cold Imperial, and very good service.

View of surfers on Tamarindo beach while enjoying top notch Italian inspired food made this a fantastic lunch for our family. The tomato sauce was amazing.

One of our best meals of the trip. The hotel grounds are beautiful and service was great. The menu items were hit and miss - some great others below average. The location and atmosphere are worth a visit.

Description
This showpiece restaurant is the only fine dining establishment in Tamarindo located right on the beach. Enjoy lobster, steaks, seafood and a variety of international cuisine under the shade of a huge Matapalo tree, as the sunlight and moonlight are filtered between its leaves. Watch the breaking waves or listen to the gentle breeze while partaking in lunch or dinner.
