Excellent service and excellent food! Don't miss this little gem if you visit Playa Grande Costa Rica. We went twice in the 10 days we were in the area - and would have gone more if we had discovered it sooner! Prices are reasonable and everything was fresh and delicious.

The woman who is the owner of this cafe is so friendly that you not only don't feel you are in a different country but also she greets you like your grandma would.
Loved the coffee and carrot cake!

We fell in love with Cafe del Pueblo the first time we came to CR, and have become fast friends with Alexandra. It's hard to explain how this little oasis on the road to Playa Grande can be so special, but it has everything to do with Alexandra making you feel so welcome while preparing you a fabulous meal. You can keep it simple with pizza or have one of her wonderful pasta, fish or meat dishes, all are outstanding. And the fresh salads are incredible. The staff is efficient and friendly and the prices are very reasonable, so there is nothing not to like. We could not recommend it more highly.

We stayed in Playa Grande for six weeks this January and February. Ate at Alexandra's restaurant every week. Food preparation and presentation was excellent. Staff works very well together pitching in where needed, servers will help in the kitchen. Alexandra is a wonderful host who provides each diner with personal attention. The fish and pasta are superb. Pizza is excellent. The restaurant schedules in music when musicians and singers vacation in the area.

We recommended Cafe del Pueblo to people who rented a house near us... they went back three times in their two week stay.

Five hugs for Alexandra.

This is one of the best restaurants in the whole Tamarindo,/Playa Grande area. The atmosphere is excellent and the food is incredible. The menu is perfectly sized, with pasta dishes, meats, pizzas, and vegetarian fare, there is something for everyone without an overwhelming amount. Of choices. Small plates, pizzas, delicious salads, it's all there. Can't recommend it enough.
