Cool Surfing Vibe and Yummy Catch-of-the-Day Combinations

We loved the Beach Dog Cafe with it's surfing vibe and fresh catch-of-the-day combinations. The portions were enormous - a bit too much on one occasion! My only comment would be that there wasn't much on the menu for our picky 10-year-old who is a more traditional eater - but that said, when we... read more

The food here is very tasty and there are lot's of interesting options to choose from. We were all starving for lunch and the food didn't disappoint. They have vegan options which is nice. The cocktails are very tasty and the vibe of the whole restaurant is a lot of fun. I's a very nice addition to the area.

Heard this was a reasonable place to go. That is way too far from the truth! We had 2 glasses of not very good wine for 3500 colones each which is $14.00 USD and 2 cervezas at 1500 colones each $ 6.00 USD! We feel totally ripped off and won't be returning to this establishment again! The service was good... More

We ate here our first night in Nosara as it was close to the Harbor Reef where we stayed. It was delicious. We all had a fish dish and they were all amazing.

We were pointed in the direction of Beach Dog by others and were not disappointed. Delicious food and drinks. Great service. Great price. Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Nosara. It's walking distance to the beach too.

My family and I went to The Beach Dog Cafe twice because it was so good. The setting is warm and welcoming. They have great food here.
