The tuna flatbread, calamari, and lobster pasta area among the best dishes I've had anywhere in Nosara. The garden setting is so special. The menu is brief but everything on it is impeccable. And Thursday night chicken night is amazing. (Can't agree with earlier reviewer...More

Way too expensive! Food is fine, but we were actually shocked at the bill. The menu board had no prices, which should have been our clue. FYI - this is NOT a traditional soda, as their sign says. If you're a foodie/surfer, this may be...More

In a casual backyard setting we were treated to the best grilled shrimp and sea bass we'd had in a long time. All the food was good, served piping hot. The fried yucca croquettes with tamarind sauce were really tasty too.
