I went to Kaya Sol two times with a group of women I met at the Yoga Institute and both times I didn't get what I ordered.... it might be the language thing.... gee we both spoke English, I think ???

One never expects much for beach food and this place did not disappoint. The food is bland, the prices high but the portions generous. With plenty of hot sauce you can make the food taste decent. The upside of this place are the drinks, after a few you stop caring that the food has no taste. If you want to... More

Our server was timid. Maybe it is because this the busy season, but the cute bar with its thatched charm begs for patronage. The ceasar salad came out as bibb. The sweet potato fries were a little dry but nice and hot. Service was slow. We spent $60 for four. Pricier than US lunches.

Kaya Sol is tucked into Playa Guiones, Nosara's G section- little casitas for the surf crowd to crash in & a beautiful open-air restaurant with the coolest floor ever. Menu & specials are excellent, good service & a really neat place to visit. Janet Grosshandler (New Jersey, USA & Nosara- as many times a year as I can get here!)

I like that they use brown rice and lots of vegetables. The only thing is that if you show up late, they are always out of something. This is only means one thing there: The food is really great!

Food was good - - - sometimes they have live music in the evenings. Drinks were fine, too. Open early & open late.

We were staying at KayaSol and ate here the first night of our trip as it was downpouring rain and we didn't want to venture much further. Everytime we went somewhere else, we'd wished we'd gone to KayaSol. We LOVED the restaurant and kept returning. The food, the service, the fresh menu was all superb. We had everything from BBQ...

I have been to the Kaya Sol restraunt before for a biusness meeting/trip and the accomadations, food and service were excellent, I returned well over a year later and couldn't believe everything including the food had improved. I didn't think it was possible. Good job Jorge Tom Kane Capo bch CA
