Nogui's is a great place for breakfast lunch or dinner. They have good reasonably priced food. It is an open air restaurant with the seating on the beach. Don't forget the pie! Nogui's has the most delicious pineapple pie you have ever had!

Nogui's is a family restaurant that has been in town for 30 years. I personally like the Chofrito appetizer, the Supreme salad, easily two meals, the Soprano's Steak sandwich. Any of the pies are great but the pineapple pie ala mode is a true experience.

Extremely nice view of the Tamarindo beach and decent food and drink for dinner. Would recommend for couples or friends hanging out. Close to shops and other bars.

We have been coming here for 6 1/2 years. Helen and her staff are great. Get the Coconut pie. It's our #1 place to go eat.

Nice view while we had dinner. The food was delicious and filling but pretty pricy, we didn't even have cocktails. Our waitress was so polite and attentive. Nice date night spot.

If you can yes, sometimes get pretty full; if not get there not too late in the afternoon to get a nice table (bring your Off, sunset can bring mosquitoes).
