Tabanuco Restaurante on the beach

If you walk west on Samara Beach –  it’s only accessible from the beach – just 100 meters from the police station you will discover one of our favorite places for beach dining.

Tabanuco‘s raised floor provides one of the best views of surfers in the afternoon.  You can survey the entire bay, from Isla Chora to Punta Samara, with a frosty cocktail before you.  The menu is diverse with an array of sandwiches – Steve is always on the look-out for a good sandwich – along with well-prepared fish, beef, and chicken – there are rave reviews on Tripadvisor for the seared Tuna steak and Almond Encrusted Chicken.  The portions will satisfy you after a hard day of play.  It’s also good spot for nightlife, with frequent live music.  Prices are (beach) moderate and service is good.

  1. Eric, Melissa, Jentzen and I had cocktails there one night during our visit. I loved the atmosphere with all the tiki torches, and sitting outside. One of my favorite memories of Costa Rica!
