Having come here several times over the past few years, we have always enjoyed the food, however service was sometimes lacking. Not anymore! We had excellent prompt service and the food was top notch. We both got the Casado plate with chips and salsa. The Casado was perfect, just what we wanted after a day surfing. Then Robert August came... More

Very cool breakfast spot, great view, good food. Good service. My wife liked the banos. I loved just sitting and drinking coffee, watching morning surfers. I also like the iguana on the hedges. When it is February here in Ohio, I'll just look at the picture of my table there and everything will be alright.

We ate here a few times during our week in Tamarindo on our honeymoon. Laid back, casual, restaurant, right on the beach with a fantastic view. Great vibe. Staff is good but a little slow. No rush though, cause you're in paradise! Get the nachos, twice, you won't regret it. The rest of the food is good too. Love the... More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Joe's. It's a pretty standard beach joint, but the view is worth a million bucks and the nachos were delicious. Service was okay, a little stand offish. If you're looking to enjoy a beer or lunch on a beautiful day, look no further! I imagine it gets pretty crowded in the high season.

This place had great food and super friendly stuff. Skip the Sushi though, that was a bit of disappointment.

This is a great place to enjoy lunch after spending the morning on the beach. The service is good and the prices are reasonable. The fish tacos are really good!
