“Wonderful fresh food at local beach spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

Beach Dog Cafe is the most friendly little outdoor restaurant...the food is wonderful (simple and fresh) and the owner, Mark, couldn't have been friendlier or more inviting. We loved Nosara and enjoyed the local food!

“Bad service, OK Food, they tried to rip us off!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2011

So.. Beach Dog cafe... Had a few things on their Menu like fish tacos, can't remember really. Its easy to forget because the food was average, if that. The only thing I really remember is the attitude of the blond girl who works there. Tried to over charge us for the food, then when asked for a receipt, they said sorry, they don't give receipts. Right - probably trying to do things under the table, as their Gringos and not supposed to work anyways - who knows? Anyways, turns out that yeah they overcharged 5 bucks, or somebody tried to sneak herself a little bonus. Bad vibes, fish tacos tasted like they came out of the microwave - sucks cause there really arn't that many places to eat in Guiones. Go somewhere else..!

Loved Beach Dog! Ate there twice in our four day stay. Fish tacos were delicious, fresh smoothies, and good fries. Owner provided friendly and thoughtful service. Highly recommend!

“Beachside smoothies and fish tacos in Playa Guiones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2011

Great place to recover from or prepare for a day of surfing or from hanging out at the beach. It is right next to Coconut Harry's and at the end of the path to the beach. Fish taco's are excellent, try the berry smoothie. Open for breakfast and lunch (to 3).
