We had a nice time here with our family. It is a nice open-air restaurant and wooden bar. Very lively and good food.

We stayed at KayaSol and ate the majority of our food here. Great food, great service. Lots of options for eating healthy and for the kids. Great prices too.

6 of us had breakfast at Kayasol and it was very good. Portions are not huge but enough to fill you up. Prices are cheap compared to other restaurants in this area. We found that both this place and Rosi's Soda Tica had the cheapest breakfast in the area. 6 of us had a breakfast entree, 2 sides of bacon,... More

Stopped in to KayaSol for dinner on the last night of our stay in Nosara. I had the fish special of seared tuna and it was delicious. My wife had the fish tacos which were also great. We were part of a huge, and slightly tipsy, group of friends celebrating several 50th birthdays. We ordered a few pitchers of margaritas... More

KayaSol was OK, but not great. The blackened tuna was served with an overly salted sauce. The casados (typical Costa Rican dishes) were good but a bit overpriced compared with other places in town. The saving grace was the beer: super cold, great for the 90F weather

Waitress wasn't interested in serving food. Breakfast was cold (eggs). Next time we choose another option

This is a great spot for those traveling solo and want easy access to a surf beach! There's boards to borrow or rent, walking distance to great restaurants, or quick tuk-tuk ride to nearby areas. Clean & comfortable beds with AC! I'll be back!

The food is fresh and delicious. Open for lunch as well as dinner. Delicious fish tacos, sandwiches and full meals. Kept wanting to try a new dish, but always went back to the tacos - they are that good. Casual vibe, good drinks.

Wife and I had a very good lunch here, for not a lot of money. We stumbled into KayaSol because it's directly across from Burgers and Beers, which didn't have it's beef delivery yet. The space was really nice, and covered, so sun wasn't a problem. Wife ordered a salad with grilled fish; I opted for the heart-healthy deep-fried chicken... More
