Angelina's is a fine dining restaurant situated near the crescent-shaped shores of Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. Since 2008, we have been serving locals and visitors of the Playa Flamingo area. We pride ourselves on our attentive service, our globally inspired locally sourced cuisine, and our unique open-air dining room that inspires us every day. Our food is authentic, fresh, and inspired by the bounty of the northwest coastal Guanacaste region. Named after our beloved grandmother, Angelina's represents her Italian roots and heartfelt dedication to her family. We welcome you into ours!
This is a very nice, upscale restaurant and the wonderful staff make it even more special as they have a focus on customer appreciation that is second to none! I had the Flamingo arugula salad & grilled shrimp which was delicious and my husband had the catch of the day which was Mahi-Mahi & crisp romaine salad which he thought was very tasty! Along with drinks and the relaxed atmosphere we had a lovely time at Angelina's and will be back next time we are in here!

Informal dining in a beautiful relaxed environment. Serving super fresh seafood, steaks and vegetarian options. Live dinner music through high season Tuesdays and Saturdays. Breakfast and dinner specials daily (best value in town!) and Happy Hour with signature cocktails and local beers 2x1 Chef Hilda Rodriguez creates signature dishes including cocounut Mahi-Mahi, lobster with mango chili salsa, fresh seared sesame-crust tuna, Thai style coconut curries, and our famous Surf 'n' Surf. We highly recommend Reservations in high season.
Great atmosphere and better food! A troubadour, Darin Talbot, was playing during dinner. Very mellow, easy listening that added to the experience. Often, dinner music is too loud and makes conversation difficult...not so with Darin. Really created a pleasant experience. Waitstaff was very friendly and the food was to die for. Similar to Anders in quality of food but much less expensive. Will go back again!

Really cute breakfast place...outdoor "Shack" on the side of the road-picnic tables, shade, intimate and clean
Owner is an expat-from Boston. Super interesting guy
Food is delicious! *One of the best breakfast joints in Playa Potrero
(also Perlas Pub does a great breakfast!)
Typical breakfast fare, eggs, pancakes etc...but all high quality ingredients and home made
GLUTEN FREE, VEGAN and VEGETARIAN!!
GF pancakes are SOOOOO good! We splurged and added chocolate chips and bananas
Coffee is serve yourself
They close around 2PM ish (2:30?)
So if you go later in the day for brunch, they don't make a new pot of coffee at 1PM since they'll be closing soon
Doug the iguana is well fed with the red flowers from the trees by the owner -cute!

Restaurant Estero Azul is located near Flamingo on your way to Potrero. Before you turn right at the beach at Restaurant Plemar keep on going straight all way to the back of the road (about 100m). You'll find a fisherman's house with a small eating place next to the beach. Here they'll serve you the catch of the day without paying Flamingo prices. This google search (El Estero Azul Playa Flamingo) has little information but at least lets you know it's legit. GREAT PLACE!
Estero Azul is an amazing place for a simple but delicious breakfast on the beach or for fresh shrimp and avacado salad with a cold beverage at lunch Staff is friendly and accommodating and the setting is perfecto!

We have been to Marie's many times and tried many things on the menu and are always happy with the food and the service! It is easy walking distance from most places in Flamingo and has parking out front. The one meal we have never ate here is breakfast and next time we will have to do that as have not been disappointed with any of the other meals we have had!

A casual beach restaurant offering gourmet local cuisine at very reasonable prices. Feet in the sand outside or covered area. Gorgeous sunset view or watch the waves any time of day. Open for lunch and dinner. Visa and Master card accepted. We close annually from September to November for the rainy season.
If you're looking for a more commercial beach (still not crowded) but you can rent chairs and a tent/shade, Playa Flamingo is the place.
Grab a drink (in a coconut!) and some yummy fish tacos at Coco Loco! Perfect beach bar/restaurant.

Good portions and fair service. This is where the locals eat. We enjoyed their breakfast/brunch and would go back.

We have been by this place many times, but never stopped in for a meal until this last trip and we were happy we finally did! It is under new management, but apparently they have kept the terrific chef and the wonderful server we had named Charlie who I must add was excellent & very professional and together with these two on board we had a very tasty meal here! I had the Caribbean Ceviche which was very, very tasty along with a perfectly made Mojito - kudos also to the bartender and my husband had a very large, loaded, tasty hamburger and potato wedges which were perfectly crispy! Will be back & hopefully the management keeps the staff they have!

The best of traditional and gourmet cuisine in front of the beach. Book now! Nasu Restaurant specializes in seafood and international food, offering creative tropical gourmet cuisine. You can sample traditional Costa Rican dishes or choose from among the most sophisticated international recepies, served with a tropical touch. All this, combined with the finest selection of wines, beers, liquors or fresh tropical fruit juices. With its elegant open palapa and spectacular ocean and pool views, this fine restaurant is the ideal setting for a perfect meal.
I had two breakfasts and one dinner at Nasu this week. The setting is lovely and several dishes were tasty and well-prepared. Unfortunately all meals were marred by service problems that suggest serious training deficits and management weakness.
Example 1: At breakfast I ordered the Huevos Rancheros Casserole that the menu described as including fresh bread and avocado. The "casserole" was 2 fried eggs and a tortilla combined in a casserole tin (no salsa, cheese, etc), and no bread or avocado accompaniments. When I asked about the bread and avocado I was told the kitchen was out of avocado but the waiter did bring bread.
Example 2: At dinner we ordered caeser salads (four ingredients) but the kitchen forgot the shaved parmesan.
Example 3: Our "Seafood Platter for 2" was lame. All the seafood was cooked together in a single sauce which overwhelmed the individual flavors - it was more like a ciopino with small bites instead of big chunks, or a seafood sloppy joe.
Example 4: We requested a dessert menu at dinner but the waiter proudly delivered it verbally instead. Unfortunately he told us only about three desserts and not a fourth.
None of these issues are dispositive individually, but they evidence an overall lack of attentiveness and attention to detail. I will not plan a return visit.
