Pacifico Azul just moved to become the restaurant at The Guilded Iguana in Nosara (near playa guiones). Pacifico Azul's fish was very good. We shared the tuna tartar appetizer, which was great, but not amazing. I had the mixed-fish over rice entree, which, again, was great, but not amazing. Overall, the place is very solid and worth the visit if... More

Right next to where we were staying, and some of the best seafood in the region? Wow... The staff was lovely, the food was awesome, and location perfect. Some of the best Tuna Steak I've had and my wife is STILL talking about the Seafood Pasta! Delicious!

We brought our fresh catch in and they cooked us tempura with veggies and also a main course of fish alfredo! We spent many nights eating here! We asked them to surprise us every evening with a different meal! And they did exactly that from sashimi to ceviche to grilled snapper. This was by far our best experience off the... More

If you find yourself with the PRIVILEGE to be seated at this restaurant, prepare your taste buds for one of the finest dining experiences of your life, not because of ambiance (which, for Nosara is very good), not for live music...but for purely AMAZING FOOD. My girlfriend and I planned to try other places in Nosara, but after eating here,... More

Pacifico Azul offers great live music every month that draws in a people from all over town. It's great fun and really close to a lot of the hotels and other restaurants

We discovered Pacifico Azul because it was across the street from our hotel in Nosara. Unassuming from the exterior, and even upon arrival at the front door, we were quickly blown away by the quality of the food and the friendly staff. There are seats inside and out, and the dim lighting at night makes the place feel romantic. However,... More

We had many a good meal in Nosara, at a variety of restaurants. This was our favorite restaurant of our trip. The shrimp curry was so good that we had to restrain ourselves from licking the bowl. The ambience was very relaxing and there were ample choices for the children in our group, from the picky eater to the adventurous... More

Have always had fantastic food each time we've been. The staff aren't necessarily the most smiley, but they're nice enough. The setting is peaceful - a great place to have a relaxing evening with yummy food.

The food here was great. The fresh fish was excellent and their curry dishes and sauces are especially good. There was a nice variety of specials that changed regularly.
