“Not your average beach cafe!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Don't expect your average hamburger and hot dogs at this beach restaurant. Food is awesome and very creative! The owner is a Canadian chef who loves food as much as he loves to surf. Try the banana bread french toast - absolutely delicious!

“Best Time In Costa Rica!”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Made it to Beach Dog three times in a week trip. Excellent food all around! Planned on going for a quick dinner and to listen to some music the last night and got caught in a rain storm. Ended up stay for 5 hours! Mike and Angie (the owners) welcomed us and we got to know them. Amazing people! Trying to plan a trip to go back in February and have every intention of going back!

“Great spot”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Food was great, beer was cold, server was really friendly and helpful. We went there 3 times during our trip and always welcomed with a smile and a hello! No better way to spend a vacation!
