Delicious food and great service in a beautiful setting

I went to this restaurant with a group from my yoga retreat and absolutely loved it. I wish we had gone when it was light out because the surroundings were lovely but we couldn't really get the full sense of it in the dark.

We tried to go here a few times in the week we were there. The first time we showed up without a reservation and was snarfed at by the hostest as she tried to put us in the small table in the corner for the sunset...we decided to just leave and come back another day. We made a reservation for... More

The sunset view is absolutely breathtaking. Probably one of the most amazing I have ever seen. Make sure and get a reservation and be there about 30 mins before sunset to watch the entire thing happen. The beach is right in front and is a great place for the kids to go play until the food arrives. A must do... More

What better a way to end a Costa Rican vacation than with a delicious meal at sunset on the beach! Food was amazing, the setting was spectacular and the service was perfect. Highly recommend.

We had lunch here and we loved everything about La Luna: the place is gorgeous, right at the beach and well decorated, and the food was great. We had the shrimp salad ( big and good, not so easy to find in CR on a salad) , the fried calamari and the Tico platter. We will definitely come back when... More

In an area where very few things are actually "on the beach," this restaurant is about as close as you get. Situated on charming Playa Pelada, La Luna offered an up close view of sunset, in a stylish setting with amazing, fresh food choices! Don't miss this place for dinner (make a reservation).

We had a few meals at La Luna while staying in Playa Pelada and enjoyed all of them. The first time we went earlier in the day to see where it was and they booked a cute little table for two for us to watch the sunset from for dinner that night. Best Mojito I have ever had!

For those that rate poorly upon places for slow service, I understand, however it's unfortunately all too common in these parts. My wife and I were in no rush during our meal of guacamole/bean/pico (unreal), red snapper (tad overlooked but fresh), and fish tacos (overlooked but tasty). I did have to get up and get us cutlery from another table,... More

I visited La Luna twice on my recent trip to Nosara, and had visited once before on a previous trip. La Luna is just the best restaurant in the area, and as a resident of Costa Rica, I'd say one of the best restaurants in the country. The ambiance sitting out on the beach is second to none, as you... More
