Tamarindo Talk

March 15, 2013

Fantastic news! The gas station located on the road from Villareal to Haucas is finally open. No more long drives to fill up the tank. 

There are also a couple of new eateries to enjoy in the area. First, check out Mamasa, a farm-to-table restaurant in Playa Grande (500 meters before Kike’s on the right). The restaurant is open for bunch from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., as well as dinner on Saturday. They offer special prix fixe menus, for example, a recent array of Jamaican cuisine. The restaurant is closed Monday. Contact Mamasa at 5002-5468 or www.mamasarestaurant.com or check out the Facebook page, mamasarestaurant.

Then there’s Foodlab, a company together with Pippo Import offers pasta, wines, cheeses, meats and many other imported goods at a great price. Located on the main road out of Tamarindo, 50 meters east of Arpe hardward store, Foodlab will cater to special needs as well. Call 8845-4002 or email foodlaer@gmail.com.
