The best steak in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province is easily at Patagonia, located right in the middle of Tamarindo town. Owned and managed by Argentinian, these people know good steak, and they import only the best from the South American country renowned for its tender beef.
Canadians and Americans who are spoiled with incredible beef in their own countries will be thrilled with the rich flavor and smooth texture here at Patagonia.
Be sure to make a reservation in high season – Patagonia is a quaint restaurant with limited seating and regularly fills up before they even open their doors for dinner during high season, and while you eat you’ll often see a line forming along the road, of people hoping to snag a table.
Ask your server for a wine pairing with your meal, many of which come from Argentina as well. Definitely try the empanada as an appetizer, and we recommend the full, buttery flavor of the skirt steak as your main meal.
If wine isn’t your thing, mix it up a little by trying the incredible sangria here, which is a lighter option than an Argentine red, or go for the mojitos – they’re super fresh and are one of the best mojitos in town.
