“A wonderful find”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Oh, what a good meal! Who would have ever thought that this tiny, little beach town would have such good food? I enjoyed their shrimp skewers over rice and they were fabulous. Really big, plump shrimp. Wanted to go back again, but we ran out of time. Would definitely recommend going here.

“WOW WOW WOW !”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

El Colibri had the most delicious food and was easily the best meal we had in Costa Rica. We loved it so much that we went back the next night (our last night) too. We didn't want to go somewhere else and be disappointed, so we went to the restaurant that we knew would be memorable and amazing.

Service is fantastic, attentive, friendly, and professional. The food is incredible. We ordered the whole red snapper (~ 2lbs), which was fabulously roasted on the grill and was enough of a meal for 3 people. We tried three of their steaks and loved each one. They are made perfectly and the quality of the meat is superb. It was one of the best steaks I've ever had in my life.

The restaurant ambience is great and the cost canNOT be beat. The prices are very reasonable and of great value. Check it out!

We had the best tuna steak and local whole fish. Service was great. I enjoyed watching my food being cooked out in the open.

“Amazing steak!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I proposed to my fiance on Carillo beach and then we drove up to El Colibri to celebrate. The setting was perfect and the Malbec was amazing. The highlight however, was the steak. I actually dreamnt about it the following night. It was an incredible perfectly cooked ribeye lightly marinated and served with an equally incredible side of charcoal roasted small potatoes. I live in Chicago and have tried some of the best steaks around the area. The Delmonico from El Colibri was arguably better than any other steak I have tried in Chicago. The price is unbeatable as well.
