Review of Shrimp Hole

Shrimp Hole
Ranked #7 of 234 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.

If you love shrimp .. this place is the best! Super fun outdoor design, pretty ambiance, and great environment to eat. We ordered the Classic shrimp and it had such amazing flavor and seasoning on the shrimp! The homemade macaroni was delicious as well! The shrimp hole has a very basic simple menu that is great for shrimp lovers:) We also ordered the guava punch drink, it was very good! We were very impressed.

The poke bowl is really refreshing after few days of gallo pinto!! You have to lunch there with a hibiscus juice!

Only outside seating. Flies can be a problem - need fans or something to keep them away. Delicious shrimp and poke. Wine seemed expensive. Good for a quick meal.

Great classic shrimp dish. My husband had the shrimp burger and he was really impressed. Fantastic Key lime pie too. If you come to Tamarindo, you must come here.

Had the Classic shrimp and it was very good! The shrimp was seasoned very well and the macaroni salad was excellent. Small intimate street atmosphere. Worth the stop!
