This place was delicious. We got a free appetizer! Very good seafood and great drink menu. I highly recommend it and priced decently. Beautiful ambiance as well!

We have had, fish, seafood and pasta here. All wonderfully prepared. I took a break from the local seafood and had a lemon pasta dish that was wonderful. Great view and right on the water.

Had diner here last night. What a disappointment. The soy sauce with the Vietnamese rolls was a disaster and the rolls were no good either. The chickensoup was a bowl of boiled vegetables with chicken in it (no real broth is used) the calamares were chewy and the lobster was dry. It fills your stomag but certainly is not worth... More

Paolo and his staff, presented the most fantastically flavoured mixed seafood dish as I was visiting San Juan del Sur, from Tamarindo, Costa Rica July 30. At the west end of the beach drive, near Hotel Anamar, Bambu Beach is a must visit for your quiet and superb dining evening and sunset view. Receiving the tab....I was extremely surprised that...

They always have greeat specials such as crab, fresh fish, a delicious seafood soup. It is at the end of the beach on the right side when you face the restaurant street. You have to give it a go + the cocktails are delicious

I've eaten here a few times and every time has been wonderful - whether I'm there for a quiet dinner with my young son, with a group of people for a celebration, or with another family for a nice dinner, we have enjoyed it!

We have been to Bambu many times and it continues to shine. We hit it during sushi night on our last visit and had a great appetizer selection before our main meal. Great service...always! Nightly specials, including often a fresh seafood option, which is usually excellent. The setting is on the quiet side of town and the outdoor dining enjoys... More

I spent the afternoon there and they were very accommodating in letting me take up a table for many hours. The food was excellent and they had a great view with a very pleasant breeze.

A little bit further out on the beach, we were pleasantly surprised by this very finely prepared fusion food, mixing Latin and Asian flavors. Strongly recommend for lunch or dinner
