Casa Tucan - stayed here many times and always loved it

great hotel and restaurant. I have stayed here many times over the years as a single traveler or with a girlfriend and always loved it. My trip in 2012 was for 3 weeks and 2013 was for 5 weeks. The staff is great and always took care of me. Ceviche is great along with most of their other... read more

You are eating outside. A little warm in July. Food was very good. Karaoke on Thursday night was a trip, add a few shots of tequila, it was a hoot.

We didn't stay at Casa Tucan Hotel, but it proved to be our home-away-from home for three evenings for our post-surf beer and ceviche. Service here is just great - the ladies who run the bar are so friendly and fun to chat with. We also met a lot of great people at the bar, both locals and tourists alike.... More

WE brought them our fresh catch, twice! First night Mahi, second time Snapper. They prepared the fish 2 or 3 different ways and provided large bowls of veggies and rice as sides. Both nights were excellent! Sorry though, never ordered off the menu. The staff was very friendly and provided great service!

We ate here on our first night in playa guiones, the atmosphere was great as was the service. The food was good, not great and the prices are a bit high although everything in the area is.

Don't order the pizza - it was as if it were frozen not fresh. Atmosphere was good and drinks were cold.

Case Toucan was my home away from home. Every day from fruit before surfing, to dinner after a long day, Casa Toucan provided delicious meals and wonderful service. As I was staying at Casa Toucan Hotel I had an opportunity to sample many of their delicious dishes and daily specials, and I did not have a bad meal once! I... More

Very laid back atmosphere, prices are a little high which is standard for Nosara. Surf movies constantly playing on the TVs and very cold beer were the highlights for me. Service was great and the place was clean. A good option for a casual dinner or a great place to stop for a beer.

Had an excellent meal here the other night. The blackened snapper and tuna were delicious. Nice and friendly service too. Karaoke Thursdays and Saturdays - if that's your thing.
