We enjoyed our visit to The Great Waltini's. The prices weren't cheap, but the service and quality was good. They also served substantial portions so if you can take home the leftovers it's like two meals. The drinks were huge compared to every other restaurant we visited in CR. They have a nice bar with a flat screen TV that apparently gets ESPN. We were there on a slow night, so the waitress and bartender weren't busy, but they took great care of us. Two thumbs up.

We loved this bar because it's a neighborhood type of place with a very friendly and helpful bartender! He made us great drinks and was very helpful with recommendations for our stay here in Tamarindo.

We stopped in here after surfing lessons for the kids and they were thrilled to have the pool to swim in (hotel looks cute). Prices look high, but when you see the giant-sized portions, it is actually a bargain. An adult could easily split the hamburger and be satisfied. A few oddities - like the fried yucca is not slices of yucca, but is a sort of paste, formed and deep fried, and their tortilla chips are flour, and taste almost sweet. Service was tranquilo, but not inattentive, and we didn't mind at all, given that the kids were thrashing around in the pool happy as clams. We did not sample their cocktail menu, but the bar looks excellent. A good stop!

This was our go to spot in Playa Grande. The food was good, but the service and atmosphere were great, Always something for everyone. They had pet birds which would come visit our table, very cool. The kids and adults always were satisfied and had a great time. Ate there beast, lunch and dinner.

While we were in Costa Rica for our destination wedding Wally and some of his staff came to the house and prepared fish we caught fresh the day before. All of our guests really enjoyed the welcome party. The food was delicious and everyone was friendly!
