There is nothing short of amazing on this menu. Everything is in big portions when it comes to food and dining experience. Tamarindo's owners are warm and inviting. whether its for just a dinner with friends or business meeting, you know your someone important. Be ready to open your wallet with a minimum for two of about $70 dollars plus, but you wont deny the waiter a big tip because you have just experience world class service,

Mariscada Soup.

I had it “regular” for lunch. There is also a cream version made with coconut milk. Hands down this was the best seafood that I have ever had and the meal ranks in my all time top five. A rich seafood broth loaded with clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp, scallops, a half filet of fish and one gorgeous langoustine. Served with a tortilla and a generous side of very good rice. One might add a little house made kuvtido to Spice things up.

The owner is big and friendly. The staff is professional, happy and just downright nice.

I will return tonight for their Churrasco which is rumored to be the best anywhere and I cannot wait.

The menu is Latin, Italian, Peruvian and a little Mexican with just a touch of Chicago tossed into the pot.

This restaurant is worth the drive from Miami but if you stay at the FLL Crowne Plaza it’s a very short ride.

Do not miss.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on the way back from Key West. This is a Latin restaurant that also serves some American and Mexican cuisine. Absolutely the best chicken burrito and steak quesadillas anywhere on the planet. The chicken is seasoned to perfection and the filling includes cabbage, rice, carrots, zucchini, onions, and beans and special sauces. The steak is likewise seasoned and full of flavor. Absolutely the best I’ve ever had and my wife agrees. The server was amazing and seemed very happy to be a part of our wonderful experience. 5 Stars and 2 thumbs up!!
