Grill Alvarito

Photo and contribution by Perry Thomas

As you travel from Tamarindo to Huacas, before you get to town, you’ll see smoke rising from the wood fire smokers at Grill Alvarito.  I’ve been eating here since I discovered them over 4 years ago.

Their new location is beautifully set in a tropical forest setting while the aroma of bbq fills the air. The servers are always happy and eager to serve you. The owner/cook, Dennis; always greets you with a smile.  If not busy later, he’ll grab his ukulele and sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” with his thick Spanish accent.

From their Chifrijo bowl to the combo platters… absolutely delicious. Our family has enjoyed their grande platters for Thanksgiving, birthdays, and Christmas meals.
