I've been to Dos Pochotes four times in the last three weeks with various friends and each time it has been excellent. They are closed on Sundays and another person runs it as a different business, so make sure you know which day you're headed there. 5 stars for the Szechuan Beef, Lemongrass Shrimp, Chicken Pad Thai & those delicious desserts!

This restaurant was recommended to me by a local resident. I stopped by in an exhausted state of mind and was quickly refreshed by the welcoming, airy atmosphere. The restaurant is not large but it is very open with a clean modern design admitting all the balmy beach breezes that is very inviting. I chose the Lemon Grass Shrimp and thought it delicious. The flavor was tangy but savory. The noodles provided a fine silky balance to the crunchy flavorful shrimp. The broth was so good i didn´t leave a drop in the bowl. Service was prompt and attentive but never intrusive. The acoustics were exceptional. Every table was full yet there was no oppressive noise factor which is so prevalent in small restaurants. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal but would really appreciate a more elaborate beverage menu that includes good teas perhaps. I didn´t drink the wine or beer so can´t comment on the quality these offerings. All in all a worthwhile dining experience. I will be back for sure!

We went there for Pho (soup) that they advertised locally. they did not have it, and I was disappointed. We ordered Pad Thai and is was not spicy at all and kind of sticky. The spring rolls were good! We will go back and give them another shot now that they have been open for a while.

This modern Thai/Asian place is easy to miss, since it's overshadowed by the larger, noisier Gilded Iguana next door. But it's well worth a visit, especially when you want a change from the omnipresent casados or seafood at most other Nosara eateries. We liked Dos Pochotes so much, we ate dinner there 3 times on this visit. We were told the place had been closed for a while, but had recently reopened. Pleasant patio seating, & almost all the menu items can be prepared with your choice of meat, shrimp or tofu -- nice to have so many vegetarian options. We especially liked the Burmese Salad, & the Lemongrass Shrimp.
