We went twice for dinner to La Luna and fell in love of this location. Being there at 17h30 is the perfect timing for sunset. We loved the food and the atmosphere of this restaurant. Reservation of a specific table was no problem.

I showed up at this restaurant exhausted and frustrated, since I had lost directions to our rental house and had been searching the area for hours. The staff was available to help me try to find the house by a single photo I had (which they did!) and offered us several times to relax and set our bags down (which... More

The view cannot be better and the food is also amazing. We made a reservation and had a spot right on the beach looking onto the ocean/sunset. All the food was also delicious.

La Luna is a great place to enjoy a hearty meditaranian style breakfast with the best coffee in Nosara.

Superior food, unbelievable setting, mind blowing Margaritas, sincere and generous staff. This is a little slice of heaven, if you're in the area it's a destination that must be visited. Walk, ride, drive by any means necessary you have to go. It's bohemian with style and grace, the epicurean will be seduced by the food and vibe, the pessimist will... More

This restaurant is gorgeous and right on Playa Pelada-- it's perfect for viewing the sunset with festive lighting and an atmosphere that is to die for. The Mediterranean and typical food is also delicious- I have been there multiple times for dinner and for brunch and have always left feeling very satisfied. I recommended the Mediterranean sampler appetizer!

La Luna was one of the standouts from our first trip to Nosara two years ago. We returned to the restaurant twice during our recent trip--once for dinner and once for pre-dinner cocktails. La Luna is still excellent and well deserves it's #1 rating in Nosara. The setting is beautiful off of Playa Pelada, the service excellent, and the food... More

The location of this restaurant is awesome. You can walk right down to the gorgeous shelled beach after eating "the best pizza in the whole entire universe" according to my 9 year old son. We all enjoyed our meal at La Luna!

The wine and cocktails are delicious and offer a generous pour. I had a huge pizza, (spicy chorizo), and my wife had the moroccan egg plant. Both were very good. Make sure you make a reservation for outside. The inside tables are very warm!

love love love La Luna!! Great restaurant for sunset!! Perfect view of the sunset over the ocean (book table for 5:30pm and walk along the beach) and then see the restaurant as the fairy lights come on. I ate here a number of times as the food was so good - definitely recommend the ceviche and the steak (which was... More
