Really great restaurant. Beautiful, romantic setting. Centro-american/Thai fusion cuisine. I had scrimps and tuna - and it was excellent. My husband was equally trilled with his food.

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.

The outdoor atmosphere was fantastic, and the food was delicious. We were with a group of 7, so we tried a variety of appetizers, main courses, and we loved the churro special for dessert. Everyone enjoyed their meals and specialty drinks. My kids were able to order filet mignon off the kids menu as well as pasta, which was fabulous.... More

We visited this restaurant on Saturday night with our two teenage boys. We arrived to a funky atmosphere , two amazing guitarist playing and the most delicious food. The tempura prawn starter was to die for, followed by Asian tuna, boys had the steak . If we had time we would have definitely returned . Highly recommend

The food was great. We happened upon this place and were not disappointed. Everything was great. The lighting was not great to see the menu and I didn't have my reading glasses but the waiter was more than happy to review the specials. Wanted to go back another day but ran out of time and they were not open for... More

This might be the best dinner I have ever had!!! I had the seafood linguine and there was so much flavor every bite it was absolutely superb! My husband had the fiery Thai beef which was definitely a new dish that neither of us have ever experienced, but very good. Both my husband and I were very impressed with the... More

Dragonfly is a gorgeous open air restaurant, up the hill and off a side street from the main strip in Tamarindo. The food and cocktails were all wonderful, setting was peaceful and pleasant and all around a great evening. I would definitely recommend it for dinner!

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.
