“Nice steak”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This is a great place to get a steak on the island with a beautiful view over the sea. Make sure you are there to see the sunset!

“Favorite at Zanzibar beach”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Very tasteful, good portion, Argentinian (meat) dinners. Grilled in a very good way. Served with very nice vegetables and sauces. Very friendly and adequate service. The view, looking out over the sea, is a bonus.
Personal service, we ate there twice, but the second time Guido and his staff knew us by name, very nice.
Very advisable.

We stayed at the Papagayo Design Hotel, and this was by far our favorite meal in the area. My husband actually works in the beef industry, and thought this was the best hanger steak he's ever eaten.

“(A bit pricey), but great romantic restaurant”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

The first time we went there was on my birthday. The food was delicious, some of the best skirt steak I'e ever had. The service is superb, the atmosphere is great. You have a full view of the sunset over the ocean, just have to be there at the right time to see that, of course.

Later at night the lagoon gets underwater lighting and you can see fish swimming near by.

The second time we came back was on our anniversary. There are other good restaurants in the area, and I don't usually come back to the same place when on vacation, because there is just so much choice. Well, Tinto has exceeded our expectations the first time, so it was very worth a second visit.

It is a bit on the pricier side, but the food in Curacao is generally not cheap. It was still less expensive than an equally positioned restaurant would be in the states or Canada. We spent about $150 for an appetizer, 2 courses, a dessert and a bottle dinner with wine, not including the tip. They also had a set course menu, for those that like that.

Again, the steak was great, the wine pairing they've offered was amazing. the service and the atmosphere were amazing. If it wasn't for the screaming kidas (on both occasions) at nearby tables, the evening would have been beyong perfect.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the kids love the food there, but in my mind a restaurant that positions itself more on the romantic side shouldn't allow screaming kids after dark, or at least get a designated area for them away from people who came by to enjoy themselves. Also, there is a perfectly loud family restaurant nearby, on the same beach..

in any case, I would definitely come back there again!

thank you for making our nights so wonderful..

ps. the second time we got a table right on the sand and I have to say, it was an amazing experience.
