stunning location

We took a sunset stroll and passed by La Luna and thought that this may be a bit special. We headed there for dinner the next night and wow it is a stunning place to eat. Amazing view and a really buzzy atmosphere. The food we loved. The service not so great. We had to chase up on our drinks... read more

My wife and I ate here often on our first trip to the region. The food, the atmosphere, the location. It was all we'd hoped for. When we returned this year, it was the first place we wanted to go to. We were dismayed to learn that they started accepting reservations for the hour around sunset. As such, we had... More

We came here for our celebratory wedding dinner, and it could not have been any more perfect. The Mediterranean Platter was delicious, the salads were flavorful and filling, the steak done exactly as ordered and the desserts a great finishing point. Add to all this a perfect, romantic atmosphere and we had a perfect start to our marriage. Make sure... More

We had a big group and we were well fed even had kids they played in the surf and ate pizzas while we drank and enjoyed adult company. Cool place!

We've been to La Luna three times since we've been staying in Nosara, so obviously we like it. Our first experience was lunch, and it was perfect. My husband and I shared a chicken and beef kebab plate that had some of the most delicious side salads, fries, and yummy peanut sauce. Esta ricisima! We would definitely have this again.... More

what a dream. but really, the view from our table on the beach was amazing. food was good and portions were generous so we ended up with more food than we needed (21 people). one of my favourite nights in nosara! and the dessert... get the nutella banana delight (my name for it) - you won't regret it!

Amazing place to watch the sunset. Great vibe as everyone from town gathers to appreciate nature putting on its best show. There is nothing like a Costa Rican sunset (no filters needed). The pizza was great and the service was fast and friendly.

My favorite restaurant in Guancaste not only for the incredible setting on the beach but great cocktails and food! I enjoy their Mediterranean dishes like the kebabs. The wait staff are bilingual and very efficient. We took our cocktails down to the tide pools to watch the sunset then had a great meal.

Big restaurant, nice atmosphere, good service. Pizzas nice, thin and crispy. I had the Spicy Chorizo or similar, CR chorizo a little lacking but the main issue was that the chef had added sugar to caramelise the onions. Fair enough if done well, but sadly my pizza tasted like someone had sprinkled sugar all over it. My girlfriend's Putanesca was... More
