Rosi's is the real Costa Rica experience. Great for breakfast. Friendly and inexpensive. Don't miss it if you're in Nosara.

All my friends swear by Rosi's for Typico Costa Rican food . . . I've always thought it is so-so. Service can be slightly rude -- just expect that and if you like this type of food you'll probably love it. Only open for breakfast and lunch.

As the title suggests, I like to sit here at the lunch counter and eat. I usually just scope out what the Ticos sitting next to me are having and mutter something like: Quiero el mismo casado que el tiene. A sure fire way to make friends and get a good meal. The service is nothing special, nor is the... More

Returned to Rosi's on this, our second, visit to the region. Rosi's location has changed slightly (to the main drag on Guiones). The food was excellent and very reasonably priced - finding a table can sometimes be challenging. I recommend the clear soups (fish or chicken), but we tried all the dishes and all were good. Suggest the watermelon juice... More

This is the best lunch in Playa Guiones for the price. Very authentic Costa Rican food, and a family of three can eat for $25 and leave stuffed. You could walk here from the beach in about 10 minutes. This is a must if you're in town.

This is the one place where you get the total local fair: food, drinks and price! Rosi still serves her clients herself and I suggest you go for one of the typical dishes as they are well prepared. It's a lunch spot with a very casual atmosphere but quite quaint in its own way.

It was ok.. Had the omelette and it was mediocre.. Price was right, but we had heard such great things about it. Maybe should have gone with the traditional breakfast. Definitely other choices out there with more flavour

My biggest challenge was finding Rosi's new location. After that it was all good news.by Costa Rican standards the service was friendly and the food appeared quickly. The casada with chicken was very delicious and the price was very reasonable.

I love Rosi's for breakfast; basic eggs, bacon, and gallo pinto. the prices are relatively inexpensive for Guiones, the food is always fresh, and I almost always get a table. Don't be fooled by the unsmiling waitress, heavenly after-surf food awaits. Try the tamarindo juice. Sometimes waiting for your food takes a while, but it's worth it.

Local cuisine in a clean and nice environment. Food was fresh and delicious! My 7 year old even loved the casados.
