We were 18 people including three small children under 5. Staff was helpful and understood the different allergies we had. The kids were fed first and were able to get dessert while we were just getting our dinner. They timed everything perfectly. Food was amazing....The beet salad, tuna tartare and empanadas were delicious. The yellow fin tuna i had was amazing and tasty. My mom said the filet mignon was the best she had. Would definitely go back. Drinks were good too. Owners were attentive and made sure everything went smoothly.More

A beautiful atmosphere with great food and service. Highly recommend for a special night out! Plenty of seafood in my linguini-4 at our table ordered the filet special which was excellent. Good cocktails too!

We ate here our last evening in Tamarindo and what a find. It is lovely. The prices were so reasonable and the portions are huge. I had the yellowfin tuna which easily lasted me two dinners. My husband had the shrimp and herb stuffed chicken...which was unbelievable. The menu sounds like all the stuff you've had before but the taste was really unique. So glad we chose this place! The service was very friendly as well. We loved that it had an open kitchen.More

Just a few hundred meters off the main boulevard, tucked on a hill, Dragonfly is appropriately named -- like the large Costa Rican dragonflies that come out at dusk, their menu is creative, expansive and really well done. The sushi menu is outstanding, and their...salads are fresh and creative (the kale salad rivals any I've had from places that specialize in salad). Their specials vary by night, and we explored a seafood pasta and pork loin that were both outrageously good. Lots of work go into their sauces, and they got the pork temperature perfect to capture the flavor without overcooking it. If we were staying longer or closer to Tamardino, we would have been repeat customers.More

We had a lovely dinner at Dragonfly. Covid safety precautions were well executed with tables spaced out and all staff wore masks. We started our meal with perfectly made mojitos. For main courses the whole roasted snapper with vegetable orzo was delicious and Asian inspired...beef and rice noodles were spiced to perfection, served with delicious local vegetables. Always a wonderful meal each year we come back to Tamarindo.More

We’re happy for reviews because this restaurant is off the “main roads” and a bit of a hidden gem. We enjoyed two delicious meals here including the seafood linguini and the strip steak with seafood risotto. Service and food was excellent. Thank you!
