“Fresh seafood”

My husband and I like good, fresh seafood so we stopped here for lunch while shopping in Tamarindo. We ordered the whole Pescado del Dia, which was whole red snapper, grilled. It was wonderful, fresh and really tasty. The drinks were good and the location was delightful. Right on the beach, shady, with a cool breeze which was nice on a hot afternoon.

First, the breakfast was very inexpensive and included juice/coffee/tea and fruit. It was a great deal and the view was perfection. The service was great also! However, the eggs, beans, and sausage were very salty. Unfortunately the flavor of the food was overpowered by the seasoning. My friend who ordered a burrito did not have the same problem. She enjoyed her meal!

We stopped in here for an oceanview/beachview drink on our very first walk along the beach. Loved the place immediately, stayed for dinner. The solo musician was very entertaining, the staff was all excellent, prompt and polite with good English (our Spanish was non-existent), the ambiance was out of this world. We returned for lunch on another day and drinks on the day of departure, wanting our last memory to be of those grounds and that view. Go there, don't miss it.

We were greated by a pleasant server. We all had excellent fish, the service was efficient and good. They had some bad music, but the beach was pretty.

Came twice the same day, first for lunch, later for a drink at sunset.
I had tuna tartar and my friends had piazza. Food was delicious it we waited very long and waitress forgot about our drinks and napkins.
Later came back for a drink at happy hour, also waited for about 15 min for drinks, mojito tasted like lemonade, piña colada also like there was no booze and Cuba libre was probably waiting to long at the bar counter before picked up by the waitress because ice was melted. Life saxophonist music was amazing.
