We enjoyed a first class dining experience at La Luna last week. The setting is out of this world and the food was even better! Get their early enough to take a walk on the beach and watch the sunset.

Dinner and breakfast was great. Good pizzas and good seafood. The breakfast was pretty different to all the other breakfasts at other restaurants but super good....

This restaurant is not to be missed! The setting is absolutely beautiful, the restaurant is lovely (try to be seated in one of the tables on the porch) and the food is spectacular. We had the Mediterranean platter which was outstanding but everyone at our table said the same thing about their dinners! Not to be missed!

We had one of our favorite meals here at La Luna! Come early to walk the beach before dinner. The restaurant opens up over the beach and is amazingly beautiful at sunset. Our food was delicious and really unique (like everything else in Nosara - fresh and local), and the staff was lovely!

We loved this restaurant, from the friendly service, good food, beach front location, and good swimming in front, we enjoyed a glorious few hours here. After the delicious lunch and fun swim, we sat in the comfy chairs out front and watch iguanas climb the trees. I just love Costa Rica, and now have a new favorite place to dine... More

As all wise atmosphere is the key at La Luna. It doesn't matters if your sitting on the veranda during the rainy season, or one of the oversized daybeds in the yard in the dry season the sounds of the ocean will take you to your happy place. The steak is still the best meal around, start with fish carpaccio.

I had an excellent pizza, cilantro was a great idea, however the portion was very small and given the price that disappointed me. Service was excellent.

Starting with a walk on the beach at sunset and followed by a delicious healthy meal, this was truly one of the best nights spent in Nosara. And their dessert!! Unbelievable.

The best sunset in Costa Rica and the food is excellent as well! We loved the views. Surfers walking along the beach at sunset, the sun going down and glowing over the ocean. And the food was very good also!!!

It's actually a bit hard to find a great drink during the sunset but La Luna is special and is a magical place. The Greek owner knows what he's doing as the hummus and tapas is excellent. My favorite entree is the kabobs (it's a lot of food so be hungry). The chocolate cake is to die. I think it's... More
