Friendly owner, great fish sandwiches and ceviche and a cool place to dine. Not much more to say. Definitely eat lunch here a few times each visit!
Brought our daily catch to Marlin Bills. He prepared it for us. Tasted awesome. Great place to end a day of awesome fishing with a cold beer at Marlin Bills.

apparently the staff had the night off, service was off, one in party had a steak based on recommendation of lady who took order, not the "hand select cut" nor tender as anticipated - everything else fair, kinda disappointed
Hola! We're so sorry to learn that your experience with us was less than satisfactory. We pride ourselves on our food, as well as our service, and we don't view anything less than our best as, "...just an off night." We are disappointed that we failed to show you our best, and wish you had brought your concerns to our... More
What a view! As far as I know the only ocean view place in Guiones. If you want a taste of the states go to Bills. Service is the best in town. Friendly cats moose, snapper and mala noche are always ready today hello. Lunch -burgers nights-everything
Hola! We're so glad you had such a good experience with us! We pride ourselves on the attention we give to all our food, but as you noted, we're sort of known, locally, for our burgers, and are happy you agree that they're something special! As for the cats, they're definitely a part of the Marlin Bill's experience, and sometimes,... More
We enjoyed a great meal here in this open air restaurant with a view of the ocean. A lot for the kids to choose from and the adult menu was deliciously fresh. Kids had hamburgers, fries, steamed veggies, drinks and vanilla ice cream with rainbow sprinkles for roughly $13 each. I enjoyed a very fresh lightly seared tuna sashimi dinner... More

We're glad you enjoyed the view, and your time with us, and we hope to... More
This is your place if you want to eat just like you were in the States. There is nothing special about Marlin Bill's...their jalepeno burger was pretty good...but c'mon, you are in Costa Rica!!! We ate here one time and that was plenty...it's over priced for what you get and the food really was average. I did enjoy the draft... More
Hola! As you noted in your review, we are definitely an American/Continental restaurant. We feel we give visitors the option of something familiar in the midst of all the Costa Rican restaurants, and we're also a "taste" of home for the many ex-pats in our region. We're glad you enjoyed your beer with us, and hope you enjoyed the beauty... More
Compared to other places we ate this was not our favorite. The staff was very friendly and the service was good but just not our favorite meal.
Hola! We're glad to hear you enjoyed our service and that our staff was friendly! We work hard to let our guests know we're truly glad you're dining with us. We're sorry to hear the rest of your experience wasn't equally as enjoyable, and hope it might have had something to do with us being a Continental-style restaurant, instead of... More
So here's the thing. There are several really charming and super good places to eat in Nosara. My problem with MB,s is the atmosphere. It feels like a Greek diner/bar and it doesn't fit the overall feel of the beachy town it's in. The server I had was also nice enough, but I felt like I was in the US.... More
Hola! You are completely correct in the fact that Marlin Bill's is not a Tico-style restaurant with a local vibe. We're sorry you were looking for that type of atmosphere when you dined with us, but we're glad you found our food tasty! We strive hard to give our guests high quality, and delicious, dining choices, and are pleased to... More
Great place for lunch, dinner, or drinks. The location is the best in Nosara. It is on the third level of the building that sits on a hill looking out to the Ocean. It's above the street level so no dust and you get a nice breeze . You can even watch the sunset. Our group ate here 4 or... More
Hola! We're thrilled to hear how much you enjoyed your time with us, so much so that you kept coming back during your stay!
