This quaint little restaurant right near the beach was very special. We went there for breakfast, for afternoon "smoothie snacks" , and for dinner . The atmosphere and the attention given by the staff was fabulous. Highly recommend.

I had the red snapper and the filet looked like grouper. It was that big and the rice was cooked with coconut water. Healthy and divine!

Fabulous food, atmosphere and enjoyable host. Their smoothies are very delicious and creative! Love, love, love their fries and really enjoyed the homemade tortilla chips with bean dip and guacamole. The bbq chicken taco is a must try.

Our family ate at this restaurant several times during our stay in Nosara. It was the go-to place for smoothies (Fuzzy Peach/Tropical Blend) for breakfast and afternoon snack. It was always my daughter's choice in order to visit with "Chop Suey" the kitten. Mike is a wonderful host and his staff are very friendly and welcoming as well. The food... More

We met Michael the owner on the beach and decided to pop in for dinner and reggae night.

Right at the top of the trail from the beach. After morning surf session, the have great smoothies and lunch. Kids loves the fresh salsa and youngest decided their fries were the best in Nosara. (He's an expert on the subject). We ate here several times and tried most everything on the menu. Everything we had was great.

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
