The best fresh ice cream/gelato in the area.

I was so happy when Robin's opened years ago. You could grab a sandwich to go to the beach or just sit and enjoy some fresh made iced desserts.

Robin's had something for all of us. Vegan, Gluten-free, Local, Fresh, Organic. Yes. BLTs? Yup. Ice cream. Absolutely. We found a reason to stop by here just about every day - sometimes just to pick up some gluten-free banana coconut bread, sometimes for ice cream, and other times for the delicious veggie maki rolls and pad thai spring rolls.

Worth finding Robin's for home-made ice cream. Good selection of flavors. Had the Mayan chocolate - wanted another right away. Robin's serves other foods as well, but did not sample any.

The food is close to the best we'd tasted in Nosara. You can get vegan and raw food and it's all made freshly and well prepared. But we were disappointed over the service. The staff is not very welcoming.

Been here a few times, only ever had the ice cream but it is amazing! Lots of flavors to choose from and on a hot day in Nosara nothing beats a delicious ice cream.

Great place to grab a quick lunch or ice cream. The wraps are quite good and the cold avocado and coconut soup was absolutely delicious! Free wi-fi is an added bonus.

No trip to Nosara goes without a visit to Robin's. Catch her when she is not busy. She is a very interesting lady. She has seen more of the world than you have.

Wonderfully tasteful spot after a muggy day in Guiones. Ice cream flavors such as basil, coconut and limon are do refreshing.

Robin's ice cream offers an interesting and delicious array of ice cream and sorbet flavors. A perfect respite from the heat and humidity. Try the basil...it doesn't disappoint!
