“Good Food and Caring Employees”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014

We went to Beach Dog 3 times while in Nosara: for lunch, for smoothies, and once later at night. During the last visit, we told the lady behind the counter that my boyfriend's throat was sore, and she immediately went to work making him a hot drink with freshly pounded ginger, lime, and honey. We had to force the money into her hands. While the prices are average for the area, we felt that service like that was very special.

“Excellent!”

We had the famous fish tacos and the BBQ mango chicken wrap. Both were delicious and flavourful! Staff was friendly and the smoothies are awesome! Will definitely be back.
