  • Dragonfly: if it's busy, don't go

    by lickerish Updated Mar 17, 2007

    We had experienced wonderful food & service our first few nights in Tamarindo. We were really looking forward to dinner at Dragonfly. We could see that the restaurant was busy earlier by all the dirty tables. We found one that was kinda clean & sat down. After 15 minutes I finally got up to request menus, I was told they were over there. I brought them back to our table & assumed the owner would clue in. No such luck, no one came to our table. I went to the bar & ordered from the bartender. I had to make 3 trips back & forth to the table since I ordered 2 drinks each as well as bottled water for us. During this other customers were trying to get my attention thinking I worked there. Unfortunatley I had ordered appetizers before being informed that they were out of steak. We sucked back our cocktails, ate our mediocore appetizers & got out of there. When we did get the bill we were charged a 10% service charge even though on the menu they claim to not include a service charge since they know people will tip more since the service is the best in Tamarindo. Ya right! Well we did get great service & food that night but not at Dragonfly, we went to The Lazy Wave again where we have never been disappointed.

    El Jardin del Eden: Catch of the day - Costa Brava style

    by holligolytly Written Jun 8, 2004

    This was a very nice (casual fine dining) type restaurant at a luxury hotel in Tamarindo. The food was excellent as well as the service. The hotel is located on a small hill at only 3 walking minutes from the beach. It features a magnificent view of the entire Tamarindo Bay, one of the best places to enjoy the magnificent sunsets of the Pacific Ocean!

    Favorite Dish: I really loved the red snapper served costa brava style (the catch of the day with their house creamy sauce) Delicious! The salads were also very good.
