This place was loud and touristy. Decent bar food. Cold drinks. Turned into a live music venue at night. Lots of locals liked the live music scene there.

Another great Tamarindo surprise. Laid back and fun. Fish tacos were great and the sweet potato fries were the best. But the wings were the wings I have ever had!

Stayed at Coral Reef Surf Hostel and went here for breakfast every morning. The breakfast burrito with bacon was so good! I had at least 6 of those during my trip. Jon the waiter is such a cool guy and the girl with the tattoos is really nice too.

Acceptable if hungry. Service eager to please. Fine for Superbowl but I'd have prefered something more interesting.

The smell of smoked meat is sure enticing, especially when spending the day on the beach. The problem is the beef in Costa Rica. Their brisket isn't what it is in the United States, it's too lean...and too tough. Certainly not worth $16. But they make up for it with good sides, friendly service, and decent drinks.

Had a few beers, they have a a couple craft beers from Costa Rica which are mediocre at best. Great staff and fun /chill vibe. Locals and tourists here. Great place to hang out. We didn't eat here, although... More

We've been here 1 week as of today and eaten at about a dozen venues and this one stands out for outstanding service and really good food. For price-to-quality it's a 9/excellent. The wait staff was VERY attentive and shared responsibility for all customers - even the bartender went out to take orders. Manager Kathleen and our main server, Mylan... More

Such a great pub! Just behind where the bus lets you off in town.We were hot and hungry and they more than filled to spot. Great Brisket with several sauces for you to add. Ice cold beer. A true great restuarant! We will come again!

We happened upon this restaurant/bar in Tamarindo. The bartender was very nice. The had hamburgers, chips, salsa and guacamole. Everything was good. We also made another trip back and had their BBQ. All I can say is, WOW! It was very good. I would highly recommend.
