Service was friendly, food was delicious, menu had fantastic variety, drinks were cold, and the live music on Tuesday night was very enjoyable! We had the tacos, Mediterranean bowl, and the dessert quesadilla. Yum!

We came here on a whim as it was so close to our rental unit. The dinner was delicious - all local, organic options; the drink menu was really fun and delicious as well. We'll be back at least once during our short visit to Nosares!
