“Overall good but service hit and miss”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Brilliantly located restaurant on the beach with good food and coffee. As I say, service a bit hit and miss but if you are on Tico time then ther is no problem.

“Great place for sunset, breakfast or lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Nogui's is one of the best places on the beach. $4 for a BLT is one of the best deals. good smoothies and daquries. great happy hour from 430-530 everyday! sunset is beautiful there, you can sit in the chairs on the beach and have a drink watching sunset, what more can you ask for! love this place!

“Nogui's is fast becoming my favorite place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We're here for a couple of months and Nogui's has it all. They are just about on the beach so the views at sunset are the best, Service is good, friendly and as most places, slower than you would like. Learn to relax. The place is not inexpensive but the food is very good and the pies are wonderful - banana cream, coconut cream (the best ever) and chocolate cream. Either eat them there or bring it back to your room for 'midnight munchies'. I had the steak sandwich which is strong in garlic and cilantro but delicious. My wife had the macadamian nut encrusted talapia.Sure everyone offers talapia, but this version was very good. Alcoholic drinks will kill your budget, but often worth it.

“Fabulous breakfats - good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Very nice beach front seating so a beautiful view with pretty good breakfast options. Can't speak to other other meals as we only ate breakfats here. A breakfast fruit sandwich (raisin bread with cinnamon spread, mixed fruit and a flavoured cream on the side) plus a breakfast croissant with scrambled egg, cheese, and bacon inside and a couple of big fresh fruit smoothies was about $25-30 with tip and tax in). Great value and flavour for the money and a view to die for!
