Fodor's Review

Much of the appeal of this open-air bar-restaurant whose name translates as "The Golden Shrimp" is its bougainvillea-shaded location on Brasilito's beautiful beach. Some tables are practically on the beach, with the surf lapping just yards away, making it the perfect spot for sunset drinks. The white-plastic tables and chairs are a little downscale and the food, mostly locally caught fish and seafood, is not quite up to its former standards. The house specialties include

mahimahi prepared various ways, arroz a la marinera (rice with seafood), grilled lobster, and either jumbo or the smaller pinky shrimp al ajillo (sautéed with garlic). Keep it simple and enjoy the setting, especially at sunset. If you have a reservation, a van can pick you up from Flamingo; or if you are a party of six or more, from Tamarindo hotels.
