“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

Having looked at the reviews on tripadvisor, this was our choice for our first evening meal in Nosara and i was really looking forward to it.

I love vietnamse spring rolls but did not think much of those on offer here as well as the dipping sauce that accompanied them. My partner had the sesame beef for a main which she enjoyed although i thought her beef was tough, the rice to accompany was overcooked which was the same with my chicken dish. I thought the menu was quite limited.

Service was good and if i was in the area again i would give it another try as it seems well thought of locally.

“The perfect pick from each Asian cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

The menu is very small, but has a few classic dishes from Thailand, China, etc. I went for the lo mein and the sauce was out of this world. The veggies tasted like they'd just been picked fresh from the garden. My mother's Thai lemongrass shrimp was aromatic and perfectly prepared. They don't have cocktails, but you can get a local beer to go with your dinner.

“Delicious fresh Thai Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

This restaurant has healthy Thai salads, shrimp/veg spring rolls- not deep fried and all the typical thai dishes you could want. Fresh local shrimps too. The staff are really friendly and the Chef himself will usually come out and see how you're getting on. We eat there once a week for a couple of months
It's situated on the north side of Guiones so if you stay in the main, busier area where the bank is you can stroll ten minutes along the beach to get there; it's a family friendly area and lots people are out and about after dark.
Enjoy :)

“Guiones Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

I cannot say enough about the unique menu and lovely service.
Nosara was in definite need of a new flavor and Dos Pochotes comes through flying colors.
The Szechwan Beef gets me every time but chef Pepe always has some great specials to present.
The friendly and attentive staff round out this wonderful spot and make it a pleasure to visit every time.
