Recently I visited El Mercadito with some friends and i was really impressed not only for the variety of food but the quality of the place, the cleanliness, it was good it was literally for all the tastes!!!! I went to the Asian Fusion Food in the corner, the Teriyaki Steak was amazing, some friend had food from the snack of the Patagonia, which is mostly meats, but there were homemade HUGE burgers, Venezuelan empanadas, sushi, Vegan, Vegetarian, even deserts..... It is a great option to share with friends!!!!!!

We were recently in Tamarindo on vacation and ate at El Mercadito several times. it was fabulous! There was something for everyone in our family. We tried the Poke place, Sushi, burgers, smoothies, jerk chicken place and Argentinan sandwich place. All were fresh and delicious.

Found this when we were exploring Tamarindo. This place is fab- lots of choice but you all need to go to Hawaiian Poke.

Food is fresh, tasty and you can design your own bowls with the choice of ingredients.

Great value-ended up being lunch place of choice.

When looking around the burgers also looked mighty fine!!

We were surprised to see this popped up in the last 6 months. What a great addition to downtown Tamarindo. Right off the strip past Patagonia, this little market offers a selection of quick but delicious meals, snacks and drinks. My wife and I hit it up 3 times on this trip. I liked the Ohana's poke bar and & Cocina Tropical. My wife liked Pura Vegan & Asian Fusion. The sailboat bar was fun and had a great selection of drinks. Next time we will try the hamburger bar and Patagonia to go place.

Someone overheard my husband asking a local about a great place to eat in town and a tourist stopped and had to turn around to tell us about the best burger he’s ever had here. It took a bit to find the place but this little mercadito is precious from the bar boat to the burgers. All the service here was exceptional! I even found the cutest pants at one of their little boutiques. They have a swing set for kids to play and the burger is pretty top notch. The fries were phenomenal and their house made lemonade with mint and basil - exceptional! Don’t miss this place in Tamarindo!
