“The best menu choice in Nosara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

We wanted to eat there every day - everything on the menu sounded so good. We did sample the Fish Tacos and Ceviche, both were fantastic and their Pizzas are second to none. Together with a fabulous setting, good service and the best Margaritas in the world you'd be crazy to miss it when you're in Nosara!

“Romantic, Great Food, Fabulous Drinks, Beautiful Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

My husband and I discovered La Luna on our first trip to Nosara and instantly fell in love with it. It has that Mediterranean bohemian paradise feel to it which begs one to sit back in one of their super comfy seating arrangements, have a fabulous cocktail, and soak in all that the paradise of Pelada has to offer. Throughout our Nosara vacations, La Luna would be our little steal away spot for sunset cocktails, romantic dinners, delicious bountiful and healthy breakfasts, or just a little ceviche or guacamole during the mid-day with a cold cerveza. Really - La Luna is a perfect destination, whenever. On our fourth trip to Nosara, my now husband proposed to me at La Luna on one of those idyllic sunset evenings over cocktails, and year later, we returned to Nosara and had our 100 person wedding also at La Luna. So for many reasons we hold La Luna very close to our heart. And I have to say, from intimate two person romantic dinners to large 100 person special events - La Luna has always been a flawless experience for us. For our wedding, the owner could not have been more gracious and accommodating. The staff was completely on point, the service - impeccable, the drinks were super delicious and the food was fabulous. We had a sit down dinner and served 100 people their choice of three different entrees, and all of our guests were thrilled with their meal as well as the cocktails that were served before hand. So put all that together, with an incredible setting/ambience and the breathtaking nature that the restaurant is surrounded by and our wedding was truly a magical and romantic experience! We will be returning this winter to Nosara for a babymoon and we certainly plan on making La Luna one of our regular spots for eating and drinking, not to mention the locale of our 1st anniversary dinner!!!

“This romantic beachside atmosphere is what I came for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Beachfront white couches with beautiful white umbrellas trimmed with pounded tin hearts really do it for me. The white building is set facing the gorgeous sandy beach and every table has space to enjoy it. The food was good, different for the area with mediterranean flavors. We enjoyed the appetizer sampler and appreciated the different cocktails.

In fact I would say their Patron Marguerita was the groups favorite cocktail in our 3 week visit. We all came home and tried to recreate them.

We also had 3 children in our group which is not really what this place is about but the staff were kind and welcoming and the kids played with the family of German Shepards that live at the restaurant. They were all well behaved, dogs and children (and I'm not a fan of dogs).

Excellent atmosphere, good food, very expensive. If it's worth it to you to have some romance and you can afford it do it!

“Amazing view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

Go early before sunset. Take a few drinks and later enjoy a good dinner. The food is good but the real difference is the location.
