All reviews shrimp rice macaroni salad banh mi poke bowl curry ice cream seafood hole in the wall ginger lemonade small menu small place passion fruit quick bite amazing food cooked perfectly fresh food
Shrimp hole was good! Lots of shrimp (or fish as a substitute) options! Pretty decent prices for a touristy area. Just off the beaten path but still very accessible. I had the jungle curry - very flavorful!
I stopped into the Shrimp Hole on my last night in Tama, I had walked past it so many times that I just had to stop in and I'm so glad I did!
More than anything the sweet staff made the experience. They were very...attentive, friendly, and genuine! I wasn't too hungry so I just got the Banh Mi which was very flavorful, big shrimp, delicious bread, and the slaw was to die for!
I also got some key lime pie to take home and that is a must! It was delicious!
I definitely wish I had time to go back!!More
Love the Shrimp Hole. Off the beaten path just a little, with parking and quaint little seating areas. Service was faster than anywhere else we have eaten in Tamarindo and the food was delicious. Take a break from the crazy of the next block you...wont regret it.More
OK, not really sure why all the five-star reviews and I am a generous marker. Firstly portion sizes are tiny and prices over inflated for what you get. Food was not great, it was OK but bland nothing to write home about or to go...back too. So many more places in Tama that are much better food and cheaper.More
This restaurant is absolutely amazing. i've been here a few times since i've been in town and every time the service and food has been unparalleled. the owner has remembered me by name, which makes me feel so at home here! everything on the menu...that i have tried has been fantastic. the cocktails are the best in town and it is all worth every penny!More
Stopped in for a fresh lunch on my visit into town to go to the bookstore. Shrimp hole is right next-door and I always make it a combo. The ginger lemonade was so refreshing! We started with a ceviche which was quite a large bowl...Served with patacones. I had the tuna all he bowl which was really delicious and he had the spicy shrimp dish and. The shrimp will never disappoints. And at night sometimes there’s live music and cocktails are delicious. The atmosphere inside and on the patio are both lovely. Try it on your trip to TamarindoMore
So we came to the Shrimp Hole to have some dinner and I tell ya what, wow. The food was amazing and the staff here are on point with customer service. We met the owner Tyler “Ty” who was there, what a great guy for...sure. If your in town here please go eat here you won’t be disappointed! Oh and the drinks here are very very good. We told Ty that we’d be back on out last night dinner, as we walked up with 2-other friends he called out all our names for the other night and made it seem like we were family! Thank you to Ty and staff...we will be back!!!!!More
From A to Z absolutely fantastic dinner! The place is beautiful, service is excellent, staff is supernice and the food made us speechless. So if you cannot decide what to have for dinner just go and get some shrimps tonight and please, do yourself a...favor and try one of theirs signature cocktailsMore
