Great food, great atmosphere!

If you take a surf lesson - come here afterwards - the surfing videos are mesmerizing.

“Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

This place has fresh delicious food and very nice staff. However, the service can be slow. I definitely recommend this place. Try the bean dip, my daughter can not stop talking about it!

“Smoothie Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Smoothies are delicious. The place is close enough to the beach that you can get off a wave and have a smoothie within minutes. Such a sweet place.

“Delicious fresh food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The food here is so good. We, family of four, have been in Nosara over 10 days and have eaten here every single day and some times twice a day. The food is delicious and so fresh, between the four of us we must have eaten almost every item from the menu and it is all delicious. I don't eat meat or dairy and Mike has always been more than willing to accommodate my requests.
In reference to the review by Marihopewell, we witnessed the incidence. First of all bear in mind that this is one of the busiest weeks in Nosara, In addition, Beach Dog Cafe was super busy that evening. These people were expecting two tables for 5 people, three of whom were children. It was an unreasonable request given that the restaurant is small and was extremely full. When we have traveled as a family of 5, with our other child, we have ALWAYS sat at one table and it's perfectly fine. In fact we were in there yesterday and there were 6 adults sitting at one table.
The reviewer said they went to Harbor Reef and got two tables, that's because that restaurant was not full, and they gave that restaurant a "2"' on Trip Advisor... so go figure!!!
