“A Nice Beach Option”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Beach Dog Café is an open-air restaurant a short walk from Playa Guiones. It's very casual and relaxed. During the day, you'll definitely see surfers just out of the water. We had breakfast here twice and liked it very much. Both the food and service was good. The wifi was also appreciated.

Difficult to imagine Nosara without the Beach Dog!

NOTE - Cash only.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Went there on recommendations on TripAdvisor but was very disappointed. Food was mediocre and over-priced. Better food to be found almost anywhere else. Trying too hard to be laid back. Won't be going back.

“Beach Dog Cafe is Excellent”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

We loved the fish tacos and smoothies! We ate there for lunch almost everyday. Wonderful staff as well, although, the prices, to be honest were really more NYC than Nosara Costa Rica. I think it is a bit pricey...and they only take cash...no credit cards, so i hae to deduct one star for the prices and cash only policy.

“Best Fish Tacos in Nosara”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

Best fish tacos in Nosara but not cheap. We love their food but at almost $10 for a taco it gets pricey with kids. Great food.
