Tamarindo - Costa Rica Restaurants

Tamarindo Restaurants

The biggest upside of an eclectic and multi cultural community has to be the amazing variety of culinary options. Tamarindo does not only have a big variety but also a huge amount of restaurants, cafes, juice bars, delis, coffee shops, bakeries, etc. There is even a To Go service that will pick up from a restaurant and deliver it to your room.

While in Tamarindo make sure to try the typical Costa Rican Casado, a dish made with rice, black beans, a protein such as meat, chicken, fish or egg, a salad, fried plantains and a picadillo (chopped vegetables). As black beans get better with age they are mixed with rice, bell peppers and onion the next morning and served with eggs, a tortilla and plantains for a delicious Gallo Pinto. Costa Rica is famous for its fresh fruits and batidos. A batido is a fruit that is blended with either milk or water and sometimes a tad of sugar. Some favorites are Banano en Leche (bananas with milk), Papaya en Leche (papaya with milk) and Pina en Agua (pineapple with water).

The bottom line is that you will not go hungry in Tamarindo, whether you like to eat fancy, have a burger by the beach, eat a vegan or vegetarian meal, enjoy sushi, feast on freshly caught fish there is an option for everyone. Not all restaurants will take a credit card though so make sure that you carry cash with you.
