Overall, I would say Pangas is a “must do”
In Tamarindo just for the atmosphere and ambiance. The good however, was only so so as was the service. Our seafood starter was amazing, but my lobster was over cooked (a little shocking considering this seems to be a house specialty) and my fiancé’s snapper was UNDER cooked, another shock, considering they are a fish spot. We felt the dessert was not fresh as it was clearly refrigerated, and service was not as on point as I would have hoped. I would still recommend it, but it could stand for a few improvements.

We had a very special and nice evening in the best restaurant in Tamarindo.
The beef meat on the Vulcan stone is fantastic ! Tasty and tender.
Also the fish with shrimps and vegetable was delicious.
Elisabeth is a great and kind host, makes everybody feel at ease.
I highly recommend

The food is delicious and the ambience is magnificent.
The service was top notch.
Nothing like having an excellent meal and be able to hear the lapping of the ocean waves.
This is an upscale toes in the sand restaurant.

Definitely worth a visit when you are in Tamarindo!

This was an awesome spot we decided to visit last minute. All outdoor seating allowed for the kids to roam around. The are crocodiles located in the river no more than 100 yards or so from where you dine. All of our food was great and the service matched.

Pangas is a beautiful outdoor restaurant, walking distance from most Tamarindo hotels. Everyone seemed to recommend this spot so we had really high hopes. Pangas certainly delivered on atmosphere and most of our food was good to above average. The wine selection was better than most in the area. However, our server was not only unfriendly but not very helpful in making recommendations. It was the first and only bad service we had in CR. There are cooler places to go in Tamarindo if you are only there a couple of days, but if you are looking for a romantic ambiance on the water - it’s worth a night out.
