Restaurant is right on the water with an incredible view, the only one in fact for the Nosara area. That said, we were very disappointed with the food. There are quite a few great restaurants in the area, but this is not one of them.

Beautiful setting, easy walk down Playa Pelada. Most excellent Costa Rican microbrew served Craft Brewing Co's Segua Red Ale. Ask for it in town also. Much better than the sugar accelerated fermentation of Imperial. Drink too many Imperials and you'll get a headache. Enough on the beer - food here was excellent! Staff is great. enjoy but bring CASH, no credit cards accepted :-(

Unlike the several other reviews, we actually found the drinks to be well made. Our only real issue was with the service. We had reservations and the place was not crowded at all (2 other couples) -- our food took over an hour. When it finally arrived, it wasn't bad. The atmosphere is great and the view truly amazing and we were in no real hurry, so we don't at all regret going here... but if we ever make it back to the area this place will not be on our list of places to eat. Too bad really, because it does have so much potential :-(

few places in the world offer this mix of charm, good food, views, unpretencious charming owner and staff. make sure on your visit to nosara to stop there again and again and perhas even again....

the meditarenenan food and arquitecture is really wonderfull, the owner is charming, it is the only restaurant of nosara that is sort of right on the beach, do book in advance because it does get kind of full quickly.... but it is not economical which is nice and keeps the riff raff away...

La Luna has to be the restaurant with the greatest beach views in Nosara. There is an indoor and outdoor dining area but dining outside in front of the sunset is the way to go. I heard good reviews about La Luna from a friend and we got free drink vouchers after doing a canopy tour with Miss Sky so obviously we couldn't let it go to waste. I must say, the drinks were reeeeally good but their food was even better. I had the moules frites and it was so tasty and flavorful. My friend had the margarita pizza which I tried and it was perfect too.. a nice thin crust with really fresh ingredients. Their portions are pretty generous too for being a rather upscale restaurant. Their prices are a little high but it's worth it since you're paying for good food and a great atmosphere. The outdoor dining area is kind of lounge-y too so even though they have upscale eating, it's basically on the beach so it's still casual enough to wear a sundress and strappy sandals. It is definitely the perfect place to dine in paradise so check it out whenever you're in Nosara (plus, the waiter we had that day was really cute).
