Most romantic dinner spot

The only restaurant on the water in the area, and a beautiful covered terrace. Go at dusk to catch the fading light.

Though the food was about average, the view of the sun setting over the Pacific from the outdoor seating area is truly captivating.

Love the atmosphere. Looks like an old hacienda, comfortable outdoor dining in the sand. Good fish tacos for lunch. The mint lemonade is the best in town. After dining walk down to the ocean and take in the sea breeze and the rolling surf. Don't mind the friendly pack of dogs running about. Excellent service

Best place in town to take a drink in a big couch and watch surfers takes waves! Mojitos and Cuba Libre was perfect! One of the best view near Nosara!

Raw and natural, that is what you have to love about this whole place. No commercialism, yet. A great restaurant to drink artisan beer or a nice cocktail with the sunset, then a great meal. The best. Breakfasts now too!

Delicious food served on a beautiful softly lit outdoor patio overlooking the beach. This was my second visit, the first being in 2012, and I will definitely come back on my next trip.

We attempted to have a nice sunset cocktail and meal at La Luna twice during our stay in Nosara. The first time, we showed up at about 5:30 and I was encouraged to see that only one or two tables were taken - only to be told that they were all reserved and shown a table in the very corner... More

My boyfriend and I recently returned from a trip to Costa Rica, and one of the things we continue to talk about is our dinner at La Luna. Located near the surf town of Nosara we had both read and been told by fellow travelers to make this a stop. I called 2 weeks in advance to make a reservation,... More
