Set on the beach, La Lune has the best food in South America that my girlfriend and I have found in 2 months of travelling. A must if in the area!

We had the fish with bananna and super sandwich and wine. Everything was amazing and the staff was super friendly. Very romantic and highly recommend for couples.

We had a really good dinner at La Luna where you can get a free caprianha if you mention that the restaurant has been recommended by your pousada. Francesco, the argentine owner/chef and his staff are friendly and the steaks we had were superb. Overall, good value, great location and a very pleasant evening.

Francesco's natural grilled fish and vegetables were the best we've ever had. Included: fish, zucchini, two types of potatoes, mushrooms, tomatoes - all grilled to perfection. The setting was beautiful and the service couldn't have been better. We came back for a second night - ordered the same thing and Francesco offered extras, including a complementary after dinner cordial. We'd... More

My husband and I had a great dinner here. Try the steak or the grilled fish with shrimp sauce. The portions were big but because it was so good, we cleaned our plates. They also have some good wine options. The service was good and the location right on the beach could not be beat!

They open a little late, so expect to eat a little late, but this however is what one should do when eating at La Luna. The candles don't say Night-Beach & Whine for nothing. Let me add: Great Food-Happy People & Perfect Ambiance.

We enjoyed La Luna several times and never got dissapointed. Francesco, the argentine owner, masters the art of good cooking and excellent service. The girls, Mónica and Simone, serve the tables with joy and good chat. Francesco goes beyond the client-cheff relationship. Is much more than a beach restaurant. The music is superb. Don´t miss the ceviche and shrimps!!!
