We had lunch here seafood with beans and rice. We washed it down with a cold local beer. This place has a nice feel about it and most of the tables overlook the sea.

We had a great lunch here. Fresh salad and greasy nachos. Staff was friendly and the reastaurant overlooks the beach. A cool iguana was roaming the grass next to our table. All was great but a bit expensive.

Absolutelly, had a wonderful lunch by the pool. Bloody Marys were awesome and the sushi best in town. Service and quality was the best, would highly recommend. Compared to other restaurants it is by far pricie but worth every penny.

We stayed at Ylang Ylang and ate here twice per day and loved it every time. The service is unbelievable and the setting and food are lovely. It was our best dining experience in Costa Rica which sets a high bar!

Went here for a special meal as it is more expensive then other places in Montezuma, however you would expect that being a 5* hotel. We had the romantic dinner with a table down by the beach on our own which was beautiful, as the...More

Tango Mar is about a 30-35 minute drive from Montezuma. If staying at Ylang Ylang you would need to walk in to town (10-12 minute walk) and then take a taxi from there or take your rental car if you will have one.
