Really enjoyed our cocktails and the food, some of it Thanksgiving-themed. Also loved the live music on Thursday night - four guys playing something that looked like a massive xylophone!? Lots of kids who were staying at the hotel running around dancing and enjoying themselves, but this didn't bother us - however maybe avoid if you're looking for something quieter... More

Food was ok, sports bar feel. All American clientele. Our large group of 9 was well looked after though.

Very friendly staff, varied menu with both Costa Rican and Western options. Slightly tough to find down a dirt track with not lighting, although that's the norm for Costa Rica and should be embraced.

Great food and great atmosphere. Prices are consistent with other restaurants in Nosara and the food was always spot on.

Well prepared, good food, nice atmosphere at dinner time. We had a pleasant experience. I wouldn't say it was gourmet quality but it was good.

Ate here several times for breakfast pre-surf and found it consistently good both in terms of food quality and service (admittedly, we were the only ones here at the time). The place opens at 7, which puts it at an advantage over many of the other local places that don't open until 7:30 or 8. Also, the advice of our... More

The food was average price and average in taste. We went the first night at 8:50 pm and it was advertised that they close at 10 pm but they had closed early. They offered to make sandwiches to go, which was nice, but we were really hungry so we wanted something more substantial. We went a second time and the... More

Check the schedule to see when live music is, since that is when it is busiest. We ate there twice and once brought our own catch for them to cook. Only $8 per person with sides. All other meals were good and reasonably priced. Very good fried potatoes!

This adorable little restaurant was across the street from where we stayed. The food was delicious, all 8 of us loved our meals and drinks, and the bar and waitstaff were so sweet and friendly. Will definitely be back on our next trip!
