“Good pasta and salad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Pasta and salad were very good, but everything was a al carte. As a result, the meal was expensive, and the salads were a little too big for a side salad and too small for a meal.

Simple menu, good options. Food came quick but service was somewhat sluggish. Good value for the area, nice atmospher. The tuna carpaccio was delicious.

“Lovely Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2013

Set in the jungle, with lovely wood and candle light, serving consistantly excellent, well-presented food. Not just pizza, but delicate carpaccio and pastas and fresh fish and lobster provided by a friendly and attentive wait staff. The innkeepers, Miriam and Marcel, do everything possible to make your experience special and they do it for what we think are very fair prices. One of our favorite Nosara destinations.

“Pizza-lovers' delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

We ate here last night and were so glad we did. The interior is very nice, with lovely woodwork, and the staff were friendly. We ordered the prawn and avocado salad to start and split it. It was enormous and delicious. We then ordered two pizzas, as we figured they were individual-serving pizzas. We could have easily split one. The wine was great as was the ambiance. The place was full by the time our pizzas arrived and the service did suffer a bit as a consequence. I would definitely recommend and would return.

“Not my ideal atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2012

My ideal atmosphere:
abuzz with people, great local music (canned or live).

This was neither. It was slow, quiet (or playing really bad radio pop from the US). But it did have a wood burning pizza oven, beautiful wooden chairs and tables (which were made right there on-site by a local carpenter), and whole dining area is made of wood and overlooks the pool area. It's breezy and beautiful.

The pizza was okay. Certainly not the best in Guiones (especially for vegetarians), but they offered a large selection of styles. If you're staying in the Giardino Tropicale, it's an easy dinner, but I wouldn't bank on it being your go-to place.
