Melissa and her team at El Be are fantastic! My husband caught Spanish mackerel and grouper on a fishing trip. We brought it in and the chef made a fish taco app out of the mackerel and a baked entree with the grouper. Both were perfectly prepared, served promptly, and everyone was super pleasant. They even took special care of my picky little eater with a frozen lemonade and some high quality chicken strips. I would highly recommend visiting Tamarindo to stop in for a special treat!

Thank you Melissa and your staff for all the great times we had in Tamarindo. We especially loved your place to have afternoon cocktails, lunch, and especially happy hour to watch the amazing sunsets and listen to the music.

A huge shout out to Farcer. He is an excellent waiter. Always welcomed us when we arrived and looked after us. Also, all your staff are hard working, pleasant and provide great service.

Looking forward to seeing all of you when we return. Until then,
Warm regards,

Myself and three friends came to El Be! to enjoy the live music and sip on a few beverages for our last night in Tamarindo, and we had a blast!

We danced to funky jazz music performed by a wonderful saxophone player, sipped on delicious beverages and enjoyed the beach front ambience and twinkling lights! The service was a little slow, but it may have been due to the fact the wait staff were bringing in the furniture from the lower end of the beach. When they were serving us they were friendly and encouraged us to keep dancing and having fun! When the live music was over, they even went out of their way to play the type of music we enjoy!

It was a great place to spend our last night and hope to come back again soon!

My wife and I were visiting from New Jersey and we stoped for dinner and sat at a table on the beach. We listened to the most amazing guitar players we have ever heard! The meal was fabulous and service was impeccable. It was our last evening and a tremendous memory of our trip. Thank you! Jbuilderman
