Went there for lunch twice in my 1 week in Nosara, where I got the arroz con pollo (rice with chicken), and it was delicious. The salad is very fresh and the food is deceptively filling. Best of all, the service is very fast and the staff is also bilingual. 2 thumbs up!

Great food and service. The Patacones with refried beans and jalapeños is a must order. Live music in evenings was a lot of fun.

Really enjoyed this place. It definitely gets locals in, so you feel like you're in a local's hangout. There is one tv that they play some sports on. The food is good (I was surprised!). They also have live music twice a week, so good times to be had! Great service and atmosphere, recommend for a stop-in!

Thanks to TA, we discovered this gem. It is open air but even a 90 degree day it was comfortable at lunch time. Service was very good for CR (Slow but. It as slow as most CR restaurants). The guacamole was AWESOME as it had a bit of lime and a hint of garlic. I had the tuna special with... More

A Nosara must. One of the main hang-out in Playa Guiones. I'd give it five stars, but prices keep it at four. Often has live music, or either kind of football.

Ate here a couple of times, and each time was great. Had one of the best steaks there ( I was worried) but it was perfect. Seafood burrito superb, Chicken and mushrooms superb. Very attentive waiter. Nice open air restaurant. Highly recommend.
