This was by far our favourite place to hang out. The venue is beyond words the food is to die for and the staff are so friendly. Beware, before you realise it the day is almost over and you are watching the sun set. We simply loved this place and even debated driving back down the coast yo re- visit... More

Outdoor setting with couches and chairs indoor seating if preferred, but right as close to the ocean as you can legally get. Perfect setting for a wedding. Saw lots of people from all over the world there. You have to look for it...typical Costa Rican signage...hand drawn on a driftwood board half hidden in the roadside weeds but well worth... More

I love La Luna. It's one of the places I make sure I get to whenever I'm in the area (see my other reviews). There is no place quite like it - beautiful setting, perfect location for watching the sun set over Playa Pelada. And I will always go back for that. But on this last trip, I was a... More

The only restaurant boasting a beach view in the Guiones area (it's actually in Playa Pelada) would usually be enough for an establishment to sit back, slack off, and let the view bring in the money. That is NOT the case with La Luna, where the only thing as awesome as the view is the drinks. Wait, it's the food.... More

Good food, out door setting. Good for nice splurge meal. Pizza and other foods were good. Can also sit on couches above beach and enjoy cocktails..

Right on the beach at Playa Palada...great views, good food, lovely place to go for a rather upscale dinner. Clean, upscale kitchen, friendly staff. We ate here several times.

The restaurant is located right on the beach. If you can walk along the beach to the restaurant, I would highly recommend it. Bring a flashlight for the walk back though, it's dark! The food and drinks were great, as was the service.

La Luna is gorgeous, right on the beach, with great ambiance and funky decor. Stop in for Lunch or Dinner or a drink with friends. Portions are very generous. I had the Carpaccio , which was listed as a starter, but it was plenty as a main meal. It was superb! Gracias! Pura Vida.

Every bite of food we put in our mouth here was amazingly good. The cuisine is Mediterranean, we had delicious thin-crust pizzas out of their large wood-fired pizza oven, and the Mediterranean platter with lots of good choices -- but perhaps the best was the fish & seafood entree in coconut-lime sauce. Everything so good in a shockingly beautiful setting.... More

Located right on the beach! The atmosphere is great (felt like i was in a Pottery Barn catalog). Make sure to make a reservation as La Luna does get crowded and you want to be seated outside. The staff is very friendly and the food is delicious.
