Good service, nice atmosphere. Cozy feel, not too large. Best of all the food! Ive had steak a few times there and my suggestion is if you like it rare better order medium. They do tend to undercook it but it was delicious anyways. They serve you hot rolls with chimichurri sauce before your meal that is to die for!... More

We had a very good experience at this restaurant and would go back if in the area. It was low season, so pretty quiet. But the staff were all great. Good food and wine.

This steakhouse is the best. That's it, the best. Come in & eat!! The price is somewhat higher for the area but cheap compared to a steakhouse in Canada. The staff are very nice,worm & professional. You can also have chicken,pork or fish. If you enjoy a good steak then you'll be in heaven.

We found Carillo and Samara to be a bit lacking in the food department (although we didn't have much time for research prior to heading down!), however after a quick tripadvisor search we decided to try Cabinas El Colibri. Note: It is located just off of the main road. When you come up the steep hill from Carillo beach and... More

My family and I read a few reviews on Trip Advisor before visiting. I was thinking we were going to an upscale bar. Instead, what we found was a wonderful dining experience with delicious food. We enjoyed an incredible rib eye steak while our children ate the chicken skewers. The appetizers, salads, main entrees and drinks were on point. The... More

It has been a pleasure to book with Cabinas Colibri. The people is amazing, the food (even though I'm vegan they accommodated their menu for me), the piña colada is out of this world and the rooms super comfortable. We recommend it 100%.
