Inside or outside dining is available for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We had dinner at Tumtah on our first night at the resort. We chose to dine on the patio under palm trees, where we could see and hear the sea.
There were six persons in our group; and we ordered different items including grilled shrimp, roasted chicken, grilled salmon, and the seafood casserole. All the food was very good. The casserole was good, but was not what I expected. It was primarily a variety of seafood (shrimp, mussels, scallops, etc.) in a soup. It came in a bowl without any side items.
Unfortunately, upon arrival of our dinner, the flies also arrived. We were not sure what happened, but they literally swarmed to our table with the food. No other tables seemed to have this problem. We finally decided it had to be the seafood casserole. There were so many we had to move inside the restaurant. A few flies followed, but at least we were able to eat.
We did not have dinner at Tumtah again after that experience. However, I did have lunch there another day. I ordered the Hawaiian pizza and my daughter had the cheeseburger. Both were wonderful and there were NO flies.
There are several hammocks beside the patio at Tumtah which make a terrific place to relax before or after dinner or at any other time during your stay at the resort.

A couple of nights later, we returned to eat our last dinner here. We both had margaritas. My sister had mango while I had strawberry. The bartender dumped a lot of tequila in mine, while my sister had less. We split an Ensalada Gorgonzola, which had gorgonzola cheese and caramelized walnuts over the lettuce. I really liked the dressing. My sister ordered the lobster quesadillas while I had the mahimahi cooked Islas Marietas style, which was steamed with a soy-based sauce that also had Serrano chiles in it. Both were excellent. We shared a Fresa Macerada con limón, strawberries soaked in lemon juice over a lemon sherbet.
I have to say, the food was worthy of the restaurants that I frequent in Los Angeles or San Francisco. Although the prices were not as inexpensive as some restaurants outside of the tourist areas, the prices were far better than what I usually experience in California and just as worthy. Just don’t expect quick service. This is fine dining for less money, so expect that the waiters will take more time even though there are not that many clients in the restaurant. It’s about ambience and languid conversation as you savor your food. Definitely a great place for a romantic dinner. If you want a quick bite, this is not the place.
