I stayed at the Aloft overnight before going to Tamarindo and this place was amazing! The fish soup (water) was excellent and very reasonable. We also had the red snapper.

We ordered here twice while staying in a nearby hotel. Both times the food was delicious! My favorite was the shrimp and rice. For two meals, 2 drinks, an appetizer and dessert we paid $42.
