Excellent AUTHENTIC food! A little off the beaten path, but definitely worth the effort! We are vegan, and they had no problem catering to us. Lovely family owned restaurant. A Tamarindo MUST!

It’s true that Tamarindo has food options for every taste – especially the organic-artisanal-gourmet-locavore-vegan crowd – but how often have you seen a soda with traditional Guanacastecan food at affordable prices? Sazon Criollo Tamarindo is a little open-air place that is spacious, cool, and offers traditional Guanacastecan food to tourists and locals alike.
