Great food, relaxed atmosphere and on the beach. Great spot for having a cocktail &/or dinner while watching the sunset. Snotty sales clerk at the onsite boutique, Bazaar.

La Luna is right on the beach. By design, it's made so that you can look out onto the ocean from most of the tables while you eat. It is unofficially the place to be to watch the sunset. It's best to reserve in advance if you can, that way you ensure you'll have one of the tables that has... More

just an absolutely beautiful location. Great place to chill and watch the sunset. Reservations recommended. Food is very good too. Caipirinhas are freaking amazing. Great place for a night that's a little nicer than most of your options in Pelada or Guiones, but you can still wear flip flops.

Definitely recommend making a reservation for the outdoor seating. They have beautiful couches and lounge chairs to eat dinner on. The food was pretty good, the best thing we had was the tuna steak. It was cooked perfectly! We grabbed beers down at Olgas & headed up after watching the sunset.

A great place to dine on the beach after watching the sunset. Food was fine but I wouldn't rave about it. We had better meals out at other places in Guiones/Pelada. It was a little slow; the kitchen may not be big enough to serve the number of guests. Our biggest beef though were 3 kids running around and screaming... More

Probably the best spot for dinner in Nosara area...located right on Playa Pelada with optional couches to sit on as you sip your drink and watch the sunset (Make reservation for these). Particularly liked the option to walk to this restaurant via Playa Guiones and a connecting path to Playa Pelada. The walk back at night requires a flash light... More

Try to be here for sunset. It's the only place like this in the area - higher end dining directly on the beach. The vibe is spectacular. The ceviche appetizer is amazing. The fish tacos, amazing. The drinks, amazing. It's on the pricey side even for Nosara - not a place for shoestring backpackers. But an experience not to miss... More
