On my fourth trip to Playa Guiones in as many years, I finally tried out the Beach Dog Cafe and found that their service was amazing but the food was just average. First, the service: My wife and I were warmly greeted immediately upon entering the restaurant, we had our pick of tables, and the owner (I assume) and his... More

We came for breakfast and really enjoyed both of our meals - grande breakfast burrito and eggs over rice. Very low key atmosphere and the staff was very friendly.

Everything we ordered for lunch was delicious. The fish tacos were wonderful. And the 6 year old with us loved the mac n' cheese! I thought the Berry Blast smoothie was one of the best in Nosara!

After playing on the beach at La Playa Guiones we stopped into Beach Dog Cafe to fuel up before our surf lessons at the wonderful Safari Surf down the street. We had a very relaxing snack. The food was good and fresh and the smoothies were delicious. However, we did have some sticker shock when we paid the bill. This... More

My family and I stayed in Playa Guiones for 6 weeks. Beachdog was so good we ate there almost everyday for breakfast and often for lunch too. After a few weeks we finally tried it for dinner and were so sad it took us so long to try it - amazing. Its also a great scene for live music on... More

Lunch was really good and fresh with delicious vegetables and fruits. Lots of options including really good vegetarian selections. I do need to say we had a... More

This was a smart stop. The food and staff were very good to us. Loved a fresh and healthy meal after a long day of surfing. Thanks Mike and crew.

We'd heard that Beach Dog Cafe was the only totally organic restaurant in Guiones so we went to check it out. Not sure about the organic piece but wow the buirrito was terrific! good portion size, filling, and tasty. Definitely will eat here again!

This quickly became our favorite spot in Playa Guones. The owner Mike personally ensures the quality and service is excellent. The casual outside atmosphere makes this a very comfortable and relaxing eating environment. The tropical twist smoothie was our favorite, they offer 20 or more different smoothies. The prices are reasonable and the food is great.
