Tough to review. Seating great for the beach. Service typical CR: initially there, never to be seen again. Food- pretty bad. Mosquitos were ferocious. If you have a choice, keep walking to another joint.

Eat At Joe`s is very convenient being at Witch`s Rock Surf camp.
The food is a little bland in my opinion but the staff is super nice.

Having been a guest of Witch's Rock Surf Camp on multiple occasions, I've eaten lots of meals here for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Most of their tables overlook the beach, have a view of the main surf break on Playa Tamarindo, and you can come as your are. With most of my dining here I come in from a surf session, dripping wet, wearing nothing but board shorts and do not feel out of place at all!

The staff is friendly and attentive but not pushy. Don't mistake not being presented with your check at the end of your meal as bad service. They only give you the bill when you ask for it. Again having been a guest of the surf camp, I've sat at a table talking with friends for hours after the meal was done and never told I needed to vacate the table for other guests.

Good 2 for 1 or 1/2 price deals on drinks and beer during happy hour 4-7 every day. Food that I have ordered and enjoyed include: nachos(which is big!), fish tacos, huevos rancheros, seafood stew, the local casado (with chicken or fish), and their sushi is is pretty good as well! Most entrees are around US$8-12 and have a large enough portion size to fill a hungry guy

We ate here on our first night in Tamarindo. We didn't have a clue where to go, so we randomly picked this place as we were walking down the street. The happy hour drinks were huge - 2/1, but the cups seemed larger than that. As for the food, we had a burger, a half order of ribs, and pork quesadillas. All were very good and we had leftovers. Probably could have shared two entrees between the three of us and been good. Spent approximately $70 for three drinks and three entrees.

Stopped here on our way into Tamarindo town center and it was beyond expectations. Amazing banana pancakes and baconator sandwich. Such good food, happy service and the beach view is incredible.

Come eat here you wont be disappointed.
