Love the food, never had anything I didn't like. It's all delicious. Love the fact that they have draft beer, nothing like an ice cold draft of local beer after a session. Definitely worth a stop when you're in Nosara (several stops actually!)

Fresh and flavorful food, quick and friendly service! Great food after a day of surfing. Ceviche was fantastic, pad Thai and fresh catch of the day, amazing! Definitely a great spot.

Amazing food and excellent service! The smoothies and food are both so fresh and delicious. Our family loved it and we ate here multiple times during our stay in Nosara!

We enjoyed a fresh fruit bowl and an avocado chicken wrap. The wrap was really fresh a delicious. Would have gone here a couple more times during our stay but they were closed for a 'beach day' (which lasted for the few days remaining in our trip) due to a run in with municipal? Awesome food and cool vibe, hopefully... More

Beach Dog Cafe is located in Playa Guiones near Coconut Harry's surfboard rental location. The food is fresh, tasty, and the chefs get creative with their menu items which were all spot-on. They have a lot of fresh seafood choices and great seasonings varying from traditional, cajun, curry-based, etc. Highly recommended!!!

Great mellow place. They had smoothies and a local micro beer. Food was very good. The Big Rick was key! Our kids found lots of choices and the adults were equally happy. Just steps from the sand.
