Review of Shrimp Hole

Shrimp Hole
Ranked #9 of 228 Restaurants in Tamarindo
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$6 - US$13
Cuisines: Seafood, International
Description: The Shrimp Hole - small and casual restaurant with a sunny deck, situated only a short walk from the beautiful beach of Tamarindo in Costa Rica and on the way to Langosta. Established in 2014 by a young, food loving couple, who grew up in Europe and travelled the world before opening their dream restaurant in Tamarindo. This tiny, tropical, thirteen seater, 'hole in the wall' restaurant, beneath an yang yang tree serves a simple but mouth watering menu: Only the freshest, sustainably farmed Costa Rican shrimp, sourced directly from fish markets in Puntarenas, served in delicious, handcrafted sauces that are made fresh, from scratch, every day. We also have a delicious Bahn Mi Sandwich as our famous Lunch Special. We serve our juicy shrimps with steamed rice and a selection of fresh salads. You can also enjoy a variety of home made lemonades. ... It's the ideal after surf spot to kick back and relax after catching a few of Tamarindo's famous waves. You can grab your food to go and stroll down to the beach to watch the waves or sit on our sunny deck, watch the world go by, and experience the best outdoor seafood dining in the relaxed atmosphere of Tamarindo. We make every effort to be as sustainable as possible, using only the best, locally sourced Costa Rican ingredients in our kitchen.

What a great little place. Stayed at Park Place so was very close. Price is a little high but so is the quality. Excellent and pleasant young lady that waited on us both times. Mojito was supper. Running a limited menu but plenty options. Thanks!

Honestly the best shrimp curry I've had since I was in Thailand. So nice I actually had it twice, two days in a row. Super small, but friendly. The drink I had was called a screw? something.. was a fantastic mojito

This little street food patio was the best food I had in Tamarindo! It was affordable, flavourful, and the drinks were refreshing. 10/10 would recommend and I would come back to Tamarindo just to revisit this place. Must checkout!!

Had a fantastic dinner here. The woman working was incredibly friendly and quick. We had the classic with garlic shrimp, rice, and macaroni salad. Everything was delicious but the shrimp was especially flavourful. Nice outdoor seating

Very small outdoor space with 3 tables, all the food is cooked in a tiny hut next to the patio. The dishes were very tasty, with great fresh salads. Definitely recommend!
