Awesome little lunch

We just had a light lunch at the restaurant of pineapple smoothies, guac & chips. The pool area is small and very inviting. Nice gardens and close to the beach.

The food is very ordinary et way to pricey! The old restaurant Gilded Iguana was 10X better! My casano had this tiny piece of fish, it was ridiculous! Cross the street, it is way better ; )

I arranged for a reservation at Pacifico Azul for a yoga retreat group of 15, and it was by far our favorite dinner of the trip. We got a very nice big table outside and enjoyed the ambiance of the lit outdoor garden/patio. We came for the seafood, and they had an ample selection of specials for the night. Many... More

Went here last week, two adults and a 12 and & year old. We sat outside, the menu was on a large board that they moved around and the local dog likes to walk around for scraps. Adults had the Red Snapper Curry and the kids had chicken fingers and potato wedges, both were great. if you are using GPS... More

I had eaten here at least 20 times before the change in management. Their food used to be amazing. I used to love their vegetarian casado- it had delicious Gallo pinto, a fresh cabbage/beet slaw, and nearly an entire ripe avocado with fresh mixed greens and sliced tomato. Yesterday it was served with a brown/limp salad, steamed bland vegetables, and... More

Great service. Easy walk from Playa Guiones (we were at The Harmony). We keep coming back. Best is simply grilled fish of the day, but the sauces they put on are also excellent, if you like that.

You want well prepared not overpriced fish in Nosara? This is the place for you. My favorite dish was the red snapper curry. Perfectly done fish with crisp fresh vegetables in a most delicious coconut curry cream sauce. This is the dish that I know I won't forget!

Ate here after watching the sunset. The place is okay but considering their high end prices, I expected more. For instance, the tables are cheap patio tables, even inside. The service was good, it's the food itself that is nothing special. The tuna tartar was good, but I've had better in Tamarindo. I had the Mahi Mahi with avocado sauce,... More

Great food, nice location, but seems to be a bit overpriced, as are all the restaurants in the Nosara area. $50 for lunch is a bit high in our opinion. We can get fish tacos and fries in the states for less than $10 bucks.
