We've got to this place looking for some dessert one afternoon and were not disappointed. I ordered the chocolate waffle and my friend got one with ham and cheese, both were pretty tasty, the smoothies we also ordered were very good. Overall a nice little...place to quickly snack on some carbs. Would go again given the change 4/6More

Loved how simple the menu was to allow for simple selection with the kids. Tried the waffle monkey, fruit of the day and apple pie. All amazing! Only regret is that we didn’t try it at the beginning of our stay.

Waffle Monkey is simply wonderful. The waffles are creative and great, the restaurant is perfectly local and about 5 minutes away, and the staff is really friendly! Since it was my first time going there this morning, they showed me how the menu worked and...that they're flexible to take off and add on toppings. There were tables on the beach to watch the ocean too. Great job Crazy Monkey.More

We visited Tamarindo the last week of January, 2021 with 3 other couples. We discovered Waffle Monkey on day #2, and we went back every morning for the rest of the week! Everyone in our group raved about the waffles, and we had fun trying...out different waffles every morning. The staff was awesome, and the service was excellent! The views from the tables on the beach can not be beat. Highly, highly recommend!!More
