La Luna is gorgeous, right on the beach, with great ambiance and funky decor. Stop in for Lunch or Dinner or a drink with friends. Portions are very generous. I had the Carpaccio , which was listed as a starter, but it was plenty as a main meal. It was superb! Gracias! Pura Vida.

Every bite of food we put in our mouth here was amazingly good. The cuisine is Mediterranean, we had delicious thin-crust pizzas out of their large wood-fired pizza oven, and the Mediterranean platter with lots of good choices -- but perhaps the best was the fish & seafood entree in coconut-lime sauce. Everything so good in a shockingly beautiful setting.... More

Located right on the beach! The atmosphere is great (felt like i was in a Pottery Barn catalog). Make sure to make a reservation as La Luna does get crowded and you want to be seated outside. The staff is very friendly and the food is delicious.

A hidden, but very beautiful beach restaurant with great design and fantastic views. The pizza and ceviche were both great. Recommended just before sunset, so you can walk on the beach first.

I had the fish tacos and my wife a pizza. Both were so amazing that we returned the following evening. The Food is not only the best thing, they are beach front so try to get there before sun down so you can see an amazing sunset enjoying a cocktail. It is very romantic. Great service

This was my favorite place to visit and eat in all of Costa Rica. The way the restaurant is situated on Playa Pelada is wonderful. I did not want to leave this place! The service was awesome as was the food. They serve the best flatbread I've ever eaten. I could sit at this place for hours and hours and... More

Located on a beautiful beach. Watch the sun set as you eat dinner. Breathtaking. We sat outside and had pizza, salad, and local craft beer. All three were good. The servers were attentive and friendly. It's all about the location, though. The surfers were out and the sunset was amazing.
