Great place to stop and grab a brew. Don't think they have much in the way of mixed drinks think they only serve shots and rum and cokes. Had a plate of food not impressed but was not horrible - beach food. More fries than...More

A Tico restaurant in a great location (right on the beach) and quite solid Costa Rican food. I've only been there for breakfast and lunch but it's supposed to be hopping at night. Smoothies are delicious too.

You can't beat this place for chill beach atmosphere, it's one of the only two places in Nosara that is right on the ocean (I believe it was grandfathered in), KInd of rustic, but very cool. Great azteca soup.

We ate breakfast there once as a family, food was good, but service was slow. Only one person understood English when we were there.

We skipped on the food but it's a local bar and the view over the beach alone is worth dropping by. The bar is frequented by locals and they are friendly and the beer is cheap and good.

How long does it take for a waitress to come to your table? At this place the answer seems to be: forever!

Bar Olga's is one of the older and authentic Costa Rican restaurants in the Nosara area. Olga's is located on the beach with a wonderful ocean view. This is a fun, family beach and the favorite place to watch sunset for many locals. The food is good, the prices are very reasonable and sometimes there is free WIFI. Be sure to visit Olga's while you are in Nosara.
