Sophisticated, charming and incredibly unique - and the service is exceptional!! The Sidebar sets a new standard in the greater Tamarindo/Langosta area. Whether you're looking for a place to unwind after a long day on the beach (air conditioned!) or a venue to celebrate life's special moments - an unforgettable experience that will leave you longing to return again and again.

Amazing restaurant in Langosta! We absolutely loved our evening at Bistro Langosta; the food, the staff, the ambience, all were amazing and a of 5-star experience! The food reminded me of my favourite chef (Ottolenghi). There was a live band playing great music, and even a cute little bookstore open next door for the kids to go explore. We were totally charmed and had a great night. We will be back and highly recommend it!

Great evening Once again we returned to Tamarindo, and once again ate at this fantastic restaurant plus this time with our whole family of 8 including our a 9 month old and a 12 year granddaughters. Great atmosphere, great service, great staff and very clean plus the nite we were visiting they had live music. Food choices for all our family members was great, plate presentation 10/10, great wine selection. They even opened a new place inside the restaurant “the sidebar” great in closed AC area. Excellent dining experience, the owner even greeted us, nice touch. Highly recommend, will be back for sure !

Affordable Fine Dining!! We were here last year, about the same time. I was glad to see prices did not skyrocket or quality suffer. My husband and I shared three Tapas, The Beruti Hummas, Tuna Bowl and Tagliata. All were outstanding! Ahi was very fresh, steak was tender, hummus delicious. We had to order more pita for the hummus, but that was o.k., as we took a bit home. They have basic cocktails for $5 on happy hour, which in awesome for a fine dining restaurant, AND they use a very nice tonic!
