“Location & Food are great, Service isn't”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

It felt like we were an inconvenience and rather unwelcome. While there isn't a better location on the beach, and the fish tacos are good, we were unanimous that we wouldn't return - we'd rather go to a place who wants our business.

“beautiful place to watch the sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

call ahead and make a reservation for one of the outside tables and watch the sunset. The best time to go is before the sun sets. It is secluded and has delicious food options. Make sure to try their margaritas. Restrooms are clean and there is a darling gift store attached. Although, the gift shops sister store in towns prices were less on the same items. Grab your drink and head to the beach for the famous sunset!

“Spectacular beach view and great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is a hidden gem of a restaurant on a secluded, beautiful beach. It's almost too good to be true, but it is. It's the one "don't miss" experience for visitors to the area.

“Fabulous Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

La Luna is a beautiful restaurant in a perfect setting on the beach. Nosara is very dusty in February, but this restaurant has pretty landscaping, white painted furniture, colorful painted walls, clean bathrooms and simply a beautiful ambiance. We visited three times, once for lunch and twice after dark, and enjoyed our visit each time. We had excellent red snapper carpaccio, great pizza from the oven and perfectly made coctails. We especially enjoyed the hospitality of Dennis and Mari.

“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!
