Poor excuse for food. The ribs were fatty. The portions were small. We ordered several dishes and none of it was good. Will not be back. Do not recommend.

I've been in Tamarindo for almost 12 weeks now and I can definitely say, that this restaurant is my favourite one in Tamarindo. The food is really nice and so are the people working here as well! I really can recommend it!
