Spent most of my time here vs any other restaurant. It's a chill spot right near the beach and was close to where we stayed. Ceviche was some of the best I had in Nosara and for a much more reasonable price than other places. Solid drinks & service and their menu sounded awesome but I was too busy housing... More

The staff was really friendly and it's close to the beach. Heavy driving to get there but well... Isn't that the same as around all the beaches around here? Recommend!

This place is really cool. The bbq tacos are great and the smoothie with basil was amazing. Good spot for lunch and I think they have dinner with live music as well.

this is the place to grab a great sandwich either at the beach dog cafe or take it to go down to the beach at playa guiones - we ate here at least four times, the staff is super friendly and our favorite sandwich is the goat cheese chicken basil spinach and avocado sandwich! goes great with a pina colada,...

We love the hard working team at the Dog. My family enjoyed the breakfast. the healthy scramble was a great way to start the day. The berry blast smoothie is fabulous. Lunch was good, as is breakfast and dinner. Good people, good food.

We like to try places off the beaten path, and this place qualifies in that regard. You may feel beaten by the time you get here, because the roads can be rough in spots. However, it's definitely worth the trip. Good food, and a quiet, beach town atmosphere. Service can be a bit slow, but just relax, settle into "tropic... More

Always a winner for lunch. Around town, you find your favorite spots for different meals. I like Beach Dog for lunch. I eat the Spinach wrap. It's outside, there's always a fresh breeze, and the owner Mike is cool and generous, discounting occasionally and letting you come back later if you don't have cash. That's the only thing I don't...

Very friendly stuff, great food and right next to the beach. Also quite good value and if you go in the evening they usually have live music. Great spot at any time of the day!

Wow! the food here was spectacular and much more fancy than you'd expect from what you see from the outside of the building. The tacos are delicious and the fish is so fresh and cooked perfectly.
