Ordered the calamari; very disappointed, probably should have sent it back. Very tough; actually could not chew through it. Tried to eat 2 pieces and gave up. However, the pizza was delightfully thin and crips; highly recommend pizza; just beware of the calamari!

We ate here as it seemed the better option compared to olga's down the beach and we wanted to eat in this area. Very friendly and good service, very nice atmosphere and good food, if at expat prices. Beautiful setting overlooking the beach and the surf from the porch. Would definitely recommend.

Get the Pizza. Seems to be the best thing on the menu, and seems to be what everyone orders. I had a grilled shrimp salad, which was underwhelming.

Tried their Mediterranean appetizer dish, which was great. Their pita chips and the pizza dough taste exactly like pizza dough in Israel: very light and fluffy. The quinoa salad is huge and tasty. They don;t cheap out on alcohol either. Could only handle half of their cocktail. Very nice place. Recommended.

The restaurant is located in Playa Pelada, and is basically on the beach. The food is great, and the atmosphere is very relaxed. This is upscale, but good for families with kids of any age. Go at sunset.

We got married in Costa Rica and asked the staff at olas verdes where they recommend we went for dinner and they sent us to la Luna and it was the perfect place to go. Food was amazing and the atmosphere was even better. We sat outside at a table with a couch facing the ocean. Service was excellent and... More

If you have ever dreamed of the most idyllic setting, on a beach, view of the sunset, outdoors, incredible food - then you have visited this place in your dreams!! I am still in awe of this experience a week later! Prices are reasonable and you will feel like royalty when you go!

Quite simply, La Luna is hard to get to, but probably the most picturesque restaurant in this area. Try to get there around 6 to catch the sunset. The music, the breezes, the sunset all combine for an impressively romantic setting. The food is very good though sometimes lacking in execution, I recommend the Tico Platter as an appetizer and...

The view is to die for! Food was very good but I wouldn't say it was the best pizza ever. Paper thin crust, could have been more generous with the toppings though. Pizzas are large enough to share for 2. Flatbread needed more salt and rosemary for my liking. Mediterranean dips were good. Service could have been a little more... More
