When you own a home in Costa Rica, it's amazing how little you really do go out for dinner. So on those relatively rare occasions that we do actually go out, we want to make sure that the experience something special, or at a minimum,...More

Everything about this place was excellent—the ambiance, the drinks, the dinner, the dessert, the people, and the live music. I’ve never heard such incredible guitar music! The special was mahi-mahi, also had a Dragonfly refresher (cocktail) and a churro basket with caramel ice cream. Delicious!!More

We ate here last night and the food was amazing. I had the whole snapper which was excellent. My wife had the buddha bowl and she said it was delicious. For dessert we split the carrot cake.

Description
Welcome to Dragonfly Bar & Grill, a Tamarindo institution since its opening in January 2005. Highly touted as one of the best dining establishments in the bustling tourist town of Tamarindo, Costa Rica, Dragonfly consistently delivers exceptional cuisine, fantastic wines, cocktails and craft beers with gracious and knowledgeable service. Sourcing fresh local ingredients and seasonally adapting our menu options, Dragonfly Bar & Grill offers creative culinary cuisine and exceptional value in a charming and romantic atmosphere. Tucked away a short stroll from the town center, we are able to create a unique ambiance for our guests and are thrilled to share with them our little piece of paradise! We do not have an actual street address - We are a short stroll for the town center on Corona Street, after Pizzeria La Baula and just before Bolas Locas Mini Golf, behind Hotel Pasatiempo.
