“Our favorite spot”
Reviewed December 3, 2013 via mobile

We live in Guiones and Pacifico Azul is our favorite spot to eat and drinks and have fun. Carlos y Melissa are great and work really hard. The food is to die for, I love the octopus and really everything else. Also Melissa make the best homemade coconut ice cream, you can have it over brownie or with tempura bananas yummy...We highly recommend Pacifico Azul, pura vida!!

“Order from the Specials Menu”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

We ate here two nights on the bounce on our recent trip to Nosara.

The first night my girlfriend and I ordered from the specials menu, my girlfriend had grilled tuna which was a huge tuna steak like a door stop and was cooked to perfection, I had the deep fried red snapper which was also good.

We enjoyed so much went the following night, the server was less attentive and without being talked though the specials we ordered from the usual menu which was a big let down, I had fish and chips which was like a kids meal little nuggets and a few fries, my girlfriend had blackened tuna which again was a let down from previous night.

Would definitely check it out but order from the specials, another let down though this was the only place in Costa Rica which used frozen french fries instead of hand cut chips. If your not fussed on dogs you may want to give it a wide birth, as owners seem to have 2 free to wander.

“First visit to Nosara”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh fish served at this restaurant. The comfortable outdoor patio was a great setting. The Dorado Carpaccio was exceptional and followed with a seafood pasta. There was a great variety of seafood cooked to perfection. Very reasonably priced.

“Even a fish-hater liked this fish!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Everything was very delicious and could not possibly be any fresher. One of the people we were with despised the taste of fish. He tried the fish here, and it at least converted him to attempting to eat fresh pacific fish.

Right up there with the best fish meals I've ever had.

“Upscale, yet Casual and Fun”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Best seafood we had in Nosara. This is like an upscale restaurant, yet the staff is friendly and casual. It's simply a perfect dinner after a day of surfing and beaching.
