Tia Maria's is a home who's downstairs has been converted into a quiet and intimate restaurant with a mere 7 tables on the patio and inside. The service and the experience are extremely personal. Our house manager called Maria after Luis proposed to me and arranged for a bottle of champagne to be waiting for us. This was the only place in Tamarindo besides the two major hotels that served champagne!

We would not have found this place if our house manager did not suggest it.

Favorite Dish: Costa Rica is well known for having excellent beef. With this in mind, I chose the beef tenderloins.

We enjoyed an incredible chorizo dip with toasted bread squares for an appetizer.

Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Tia Maria's is located in Playa Langosta just a few yards uphill from the supermercado.
Price: US$11-20
