Be careful at this place - staff were blatantly trying to change prices on us to charge more, trying to sell a drink and then demand more when it arrived. Terrible service preceded that nonsense - this place is a joke.

While eating and drinking our way through CR we found this place.. I had the Pacifico burger it satisfied, I am a burger guy and can highly recommend. Wife had the whole fish and it was very tasty.. The margaritas were very good too!

Fantastic, fun place to dine with college age grandkids. Burgers were excellent as were the margaritas! Definitely will be on our list of places to stop again the next time we visit Tamarindo!

Great bar/restaurant. Close to the beautiful beach. Great Food. A tiny bit pricey as I am Canadian and our dollar is crap right now. Good tasty drinks. Ate here twice!
