“Seriously good fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Had an excellent meal here the other night. The blackened snapper and tuna were delicious. Nice and friendly service too. Karaoke Thursdays and Saturdays - if that's your thing.

“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

This a a fabulous little spot tucked away from the dusty road by some high hedges. They've got lots of seafood options and a meh vegetarian pizza. However, if you love microbrews and are feeling sad that Costa Rica is lacking them, the Tucan serves Segua! Hooray. It's a red IPA. Enjoy.

There's generally a good vibe at the Tucan. Lots of happy people, sometimes live music, and always endless footage of surfing on the tvs. I lived in Guiones for 3 months and spent several nights there.

“Casa Tucan is a great place to hang out and catch live music.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Casa Tucan was the first place that I stayed in Nosara / Playa Guiones, before the area built up. We stayed in the "Jungle Room", which was one of only 4 rooms at the time, and the bar / restaurant was one of the few around. More rooms have been added since then, and the bar / restaurant remains to be one of the best places at Guiones to hang out and catch live music.

“Great food, affordable prices, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

The environment is outdoors -- perfect after-surfing restaurant. The TV at the bar plays constant surf movies (my girlfriend had to position me with my back to the TV) and the environment is laid back and friendly. Great Papaya smoothies and veggie friendly. I never tired of the Casados.

Food was average here. Not bad, but not great either.
