view web site ›'s insider take:

The Nicoya Peninsula beach town of Tamarindo has become known for trendy restaurants run by young American and European expats. Dragonfly, owned by California native Tish Tomlinson, is one the best. The peaked roof of the open-air dining room is held aloft by twisted wood columns laced with fairy lights and hung with modernist lanterns. The Latin–Asian menu might include wild mushroom risotto with Manchego cheese; Thai-style crispy fish cake with curried sweet corn; and honey-chile–glazed chicken breast with sticky rice and fresh mint.—Updated by Christopher P.

Open Mondays through Saturdays 6 to 11 pm.
