My wife and I had lunch here over the Christmas holiday after a morning of bodyboarding at Playa Carmen. The chips we ordered with the guacamole dip was the best we have ever had. You have got to try them. Our sandwiches were awesome too. Would have eaten here for lunch nearly every day, if we had only tried this... More

I loved the Beach Dog Cafe. I did not need to order both a smoothie and tacos - that was a lot of food! - but everything looked so good I couldn't resist. We sat outside, though the inside is nice and looked like a great place to go for drinks as well. The smoothie was huge and very tasty... More

Came here for lunch and I really enjoyed the food. The price is the right, and the staff is super helpful. Definitely worth checking out.

After a long walk at the warm sand and the amazing sunset in Playa Guiones, my husband and I took one of the paths out of the beach, and headed to The Beach Dog Cafe. Somebody at Casa Rosada where we were at in Nosara told us to try. It was a good walk from the place we were at,... More

Service was great, good selection, super nice staff in a kind of patio setting, well done, arty inside but plenty of room outside. Prices are good, all service included.

Came here traveling solo and found Beach Dog! The menu had a great variety, but clearly uses local ingredients and flavor. The veggies and chicken are organic and everything tasted super fresh and was well presented. There's inside and outside seating and really clean but also casual. There's good island music streaming though the outdoor speakers and it's a nice... More

In a town with great food choices, this is one of the best! For lunch...amazing fish tacos, truly delicious spinach salad with feta and strawberries, panko fried avocado tacos - yum! We saw a million other things we want to try, but have been having a hard time straying from the tacos and smoothies. Warning: this place is addictive! We... More

This cute cafe is in the Playa Carmen Plaza and has incredible food. The food is brought in from local farms and for the most part organic. It's flavorful and just overall fantastic. Try the smoothies, the healthy breakfast and the avo melt. There's no way you'll only go once.
