This was an amazing dinner! I would not hesitate going. Best meal in Tamarindo. My husband had red snapper and I had beef Thai meal with shrimp avocado app. All were amazing. Drinks were awesome too.

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.

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.
