“Our go-to place for lunch in Guiones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We ate here 3 times during a 10 day stay, so that should say something. We really liked this place. Let's start with the food. A nice variety of menu offerings. As with most other restaurants there, the portions were enormous. When you order the steak, you get steak, plus fries, plus salad, plus grilled veggies and god only knows what else! The same with their delicious provencal fish. Fantastic south of France flvors and a huge amount of food. 2 adults would be stuffed if they share. The kids loved their pastas and burgers as well. And the smoothies were delicious. Do not miss dessert. Cream puff or pineapple upside down cake are still on my mind!

Beyond the food, the service is very wonderful and friendly. We would eat a long and leisurely lunch and bring along our bathing suits to cool of in their pool - all part of a casual, fun experience. But if that's not enough, the mini golf course is a hoot! The kids loved it, but it's a pretty challenging course, even for adults. Some fun and unusual hole layouts.

Don't miss this place if you visit Playa Guiones. We never came for dinner because we always came for lunch, but I suspect it would be great for that as well.

Thank you for coming three times !

Since 1 year, we are open from 7am to 5pm for Breakfast and Lunch (no more dinner) 7 days a week.

Our son Mael designed and build with the money he made selling his abstract paintings in Mael Gallery next to Cafe de Paris.

You can write a nice review on his Jungle mini golf Nosara Tripadvisor if you want.

Thank you again and see you soon in Nosara.

“Amazing jungle mini golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

we enjoyed a good lunch on a nice terrace with good service. Dishes were served with a lot of vegetables! they have also a nice bakery with an more European taste oriented offer. But the biggest surprise was the jungle mini-golf with 18 challenging unique holes. Very different from the classical boring and bad mantained European installations. Definitively recommendable to spend herefor one hour.

“Kids burger was HUGE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

My daughter loved it. Very clean and centrally located to Nosara. We had some great food that was reasonably priced and the drinks were good too. Share the burger though. I'd be surprised if one child could finish it.

“Yummy pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This restaurant became a fast favorite on our first trip to Nosara. A traveling companion bought an entire plate of macaroons! And their mini-quiches were a great breakfast. They did a birthday cake for us too an it was amazing.

“Ok coffee, good bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

It's basically a coffee machine (Kurig?) so you get what you pay for. The bakery items are delicious though.
