This place is right on the beach. Beautiful views, amazing food and great music. The food was so good for dinner that we went back the next day for lunch. It has both indoor and outdoor seating. For lunch, we sat outside on the "lawn" on comfy chairs and couches. Full bar and a fun variety of mixed drinks. Dress... More

We stumbled into La Luna late at night, and all of us left raving about some of the best food we'd ever had. The style is classic Costa Rican with Mediterranean influences, and the atmosphere of the restuarant is chic and lovely. The outside patio seating is mere meters away from Playa Pelada, one of the loveliest white-sand beaches around,... More

A gem of a place with excellent food and a beautiful view. The fresh fish in the coconut lime broth was delicious!

The location of this restaurant can't be beat. It's right on the shore looking onto Playa Pelada. The food is really excellent. I cannot recommend the steak highly enough - best EVER!

loved the food, the vibe and the atmosphere.. very chic, and hip.. must be adventurous, getting there by foot on the beach is a bit hairy but worth the hike

We went for drinks and were blown away by the view. The food looked good but the view was amazing. Highly recommend getting there early. There are really comfy couches set up but lots of folks like us show up at sunset.

Visited this restaurant after a recommendation from one of the staff members of our hotel. Hit up Tripadvisor with our free wifi and read through some mixed reviews about the service/quality and price....decided it was worth a try to see the sunset over dinner during our Honeymoon in Nosara! We made reservations for 5pm as the sun sets around 6pm,... More

I celebrated my birthday here last week, and liked it so much we returned for lunch a few days later. The restaurant overlooks the ocean, and you can walk down to the beach from it. It's set mostly on a veranda - with a small "garden"/outdoor seating area with daybed=like seating - great for cocktails. Speaking of which - they... More
