Robin shared her background with us...20 years cooking in France! But the food in her place in Nosara is perfect for the Pura Vida. It is fresh, made in house, locally grown ingredients and packed with flavor. We haven't made it to the ice cream yet but will try that soon.

Good food at decent prices, especially for a vegetarian. The ice cream is also quite good. Buena comida a precios buenos, especialmente para un vegetariano. Los helados son buenos también.

I am addicted to the Avocado toast, iced coffee and cookies! Robin is the most wonderful hostess too!!! This outdoor café has delicious ice cream and the freshest of food. I think I visited almost every day my last trip. Great for breakfast, lunch, ice cream and anything in between!

We had coffee and food twice while visiting Nosara. The food is good. I was undecided about what to have and Robin had no patience for this. It would have been better if she was kind and made suggestions. Instead she was rude. The coffee and food is good.

Having researched Robins and after a long grueling drive from Samara we headed there for lunch only to find that they were not serving food ??? We ate at another restaurant nearby and had ice cream from Robins for dessert which we have to say was excellent. We are sure the food would have been too. We assume that they... More

I eat here as often as I can. The food is so fresh, and so good!!!! It's a very quaint outdoor place in the center of town. So you can go for Ice cream, a smoothie or a meal and never be dissapointed. The staff is super friendly and prices very reasonable. A must stop in Guiones.

Thank Andreita_12
