    The margaritas are sooo delicious- the ambiance is so fun and happy- we loved sitting outside at the fire table. The guacamole was so fresh and big! Love how unique it is with all fresh ingredients like radish and pomegranate. The carne Asada plate was to die for. The sauce on the side really makes it. Get it with flour tortillas! I’ll be dreaming of that dish until we make it back again. The host staff and servers are all very attentive (and attractive!)

    Our waitress was so accommodating. I was meeting up with old friends from undergrad that I hadn't seen in 40😳 years! She didn't rush us at all. And she was so friendly!

    I arrived early and was able to get a table with a fireplace! Service was terrific. Our server, Leeloo (sp?) was fabulous. We tried the corn appetizer. Spicy and delicious, but don't get for a first date. The chips and salsa were terrific. Guacamole amazing and chicken enchiladas great too. Big portions!

    Our server was great, but clearly overwhelmed with having to bounce between many tables and bartending - you need more servers. Still, she was easily a peppy presence and great with customers. The food was pretty mediocre with some dishes being bad - I’ve had much better food for half the price. I would not recommend the restaurant at all, your food is way overpriced for the below average quality that it actually is.

    This is our third group dinner at Tamarindo as we have enjoyed the patio, the menu and service so much. Tamarindo margarita is highly recommended as well as the queso app (and a protein and it is enough for a meal for someone). Casual atmosphere allows people to talk while the menu is flexible for a variety of diets.

    We had fun at this lively, creative restaurant in downtown Del Mar.Parking was easy in the garage. My wife and I spit the chicken enchiladas that were delicious. The chips and salsa were excellent as was the guacamole dip. Our server, Chelsea, was fun and on top of everything.

    The service was poor, I usually love coming here but think it was an off night for them. I also noticed they have smaller portions. I got the carnitas tacos. Usually they come with 3 and a side of beans. there were only two on the plate and a kale salad. the food was still spectacular. I would also say the drinks are really expensive for what you get. Margarita was $20. and was mostly ice. I paid more for my margarita then I did for my food. My server I believe was just super busy - Help for her would have been nice.

    For having reservations a few hours earlier and the place not being busy, we still got the worst seat they had there. No fire pit or beautiful outside seating that we never were offered. The ceviche was too fishy and no flavor.

    We ordered from the restaurant week menu. The tostada dish while delicious was soooo small. The other choice (a sandwich) ordered by one of us was overbearingly oily (mostly the bread) and overall was too salty. Salads were very good. Chips/salsa was great, as always. Next year, won't order from restaurant week menu and order my usuals from the menu :-)

    Lunch at Tamarindo Del Mar was lovely. My family and I had a great time. The location is beautiful. And the ambiance was good. I ordered the Octopus + Mahi Tacos. The taste was average nothing wonderful or awe worthy. The seasoning on the fish was lacking but the combination of octopus and fish was wonderful. The mango added a fun flavor and I loved the mix of textures. Our waitress had a great attitude and was very nice, however she was a bit clumsy and insecure. She completely forgot my cousins drink and he was way to nice to tell her. I did feel she was very timid or insecure and this would cause her to be clumsy when handing over plates. Regardless we had a great and fun time.

    I didn’t care for the cheese pablano enchilada. I’m a big cook and grew up on Mexican food. I make better! Way too much of everything in it, way too many onions. I took a couple bites. Black beans are from cans I presume. Rice and beans are both very bland.
