We tried this beachside restaurant based on reviews here and we were really disappointed. The view is very nice before dark but the food and service were both average at best. Good salad. Overly battered fish in the fish tacos which were fried too long. The pizza was like motzah with sauce and a few dots of cheese, dry and... More

The sunset from La Luna is outstanding. The place is crowded and packed between 17 pm and 19 pm as everyone is battling for the perfect photoshoot. The food is good, well made and tasty, but be prepared for some huge portions..

Everyone at our hotel (Bodhi Tree) raved about this place so we had to see it. The only restaurant in the area with a beachfront and sunset view. Very busy but well-staffed to deal with the crowds.

Great food in a stunning atmosphere! Great for midday drinks if you're on playa pelada, even better for dinner at sunset with views of the beach! Great drinks and food too!

We went there for lunch and didn't get any disappointment. Food was amazing. Ceviche is a dream and the fish carpaccio was spectacular. Bbq chicken pizza and chorizo pizza we just a dream come true. Whole fried red snapper is just perfect. To top that drinks and service were pin point. I am sure with the view they have, the... More

While visiting Nosara last week we ate here twice, skipping the full board meals we had covered in our hotel and it was worth it! The food is excellent and the staff are friendly and courteous. Its gets busy so booking is recommended, especially if you want a table around 5:30pm to watch the sunset. Seating outside is highly recommended.... More

Their food is very good but I was disappointed in the wait time. They seemed to be short staffed the night we were there. We did have a big group of 15.

Situated in a quaint little colonial building there's dining on the veranda and outside on the beach close to where you can witness the amazing sunsets of Nosara. Watch for the thousands of little crabs that invade the ground at sunset. Food is typically Mediterranean with fusion offering ceviche, salads, platters, etc all fresh fare for the warm nosara nights.... More
