Description: Welcome to Dragonfly Bar & Grill, a Tamarindo institution since its opening in January 2005. Highly touted as one of the best dining establishments in the bustling tourist town of Tamarindo, Costa Rica, Dragonfly consistently delivers exceptional cuisine, fantastic wines, cocktails and craft beers with gracious and knowledgeable service. Sourcing fresh local ingredients and seasonally adapting our menu options, Dragonfly Bar & Grill offers creative culinary cuisine and exceptional value in a charming and romantic atmosphere. Tucked away a short stroll from the town center, we are able to create a unique ambiance for our guests and are thrilled to share with them our little piece of paradise! We do not have an actual street address - We are a short stroll for the town center on Corona Street, after Pizzeria La Baula and just before Bolas Locas Mini Golf, behind Hotel Pasatiempo.

Really great restaurant. Beautiful, romantic setting. Centro-american/Thai fusion cuisine. I had scrimps and tuna - and it was excellent. My husband was equally trilled with his food.

Live outside of Chicago, so we have more than our fair share of top dinning spots. You will not be disappointed in Roberto and his team. From the appetizers to desert, nothing will disappoint.

The outdoor atmosphere was fantastic, and the food was delicious. We were with a group of 7, so we tried a variety of appetizers, main courses, and we loved the churro special for dessert. Everyone enjoyed their meals and specialty drinks. My kids were able to order filet mignon off the kids menu as well as pasta, which was fabulous. We dined at several restaurants during the week, and it was the only one that offered a kid's menu. I really can't say enough about the atmosphere either - we had a wonderful dining experience!

I have been to Tamarindo before, but had never eaten here. On the recommendation of a local couple, we were directed here, with the promise of the best dinner of the trip. We were not disappointed. Wonderful setting, great service, and INCREDIBLE food ! There fish and seafood are SO fresh, and beautifully prepared, using local flavors ! You have got to try the Ahi tuna or whole snapper dishes !! It is the best dinner you will have in Tamarindo !! Thank you to Dragonfly ! my new favorite restaurant, we will definitely be back soon !!!!
