Seasons by Shlomy review, Tamarindo

Seasons is rated as one of the best restaurants in Tamarindo. On closer inspection it does appear to be one of the better restaurants.

We went there quite early in the evening and having no reservation took the last unreserved  table near the nice pool area. I think it is best to arrange your table in Seasons in advance as they were packed later.

We bought a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and went for the specials of the day including a shared appetizer. The portions were rather small (but I don’t mind it in good restaurants) and what struck my boyfriend is that both entrees (I had grilled salmon and he had spicy shrimps) were served with exactly the same veggies which were decorated the same way. This is also a difference between a good chef and an average one. I think Mr Shlomy belongs to the category of the decent chefs rather to the extraordinary, especially as deserts were again on an average level.

I think people expect too much from Seasons by Shlomy, where the food is rather indifferent, although the service and atmosphere is good. If you are after exquisite food, I would recommend Dragonfly restaurant, it was my best experience in Tamarindo. The prices in most restaurants are similar, so you might as well go to the better restaurants like Dragonfly. My review of Dragonfly is here.
