I enjoyed the fish tacos but waiter was a little less than professional. Kind of cocky and smug. Also forgot to bring items. Not so pura vida. Tab came to $82 for 2 plates of fish tacos, sandwich, quesadilla, and 3 smoothies. Food was good but not sure it’s worth that price.

Food and Drinks are great! Service is good but can get a little slow, as it’s a small kitchen. Seems best for adults and teens as the kids we have seen at our visits are dying on the vine with the wait. They usually have live music and so far the performers have been very good. We really enjoyed the Kitar music this past trip. Also, grab a T-shirt or tank, with the super cool Beach Dog Logo.

The variety of dishes they serve here is phenomenal. And every dish is delicious! Every time we go, it`s hard to choose from the menu because everything sounds so delicious. Their meals are filling, nutritious, and fresh. The live music is also a big plus!

My sister and I stopped in for drinks in the afternoon once and the food smelled so good, we came back another day to have the banana bread french toast. Yum!!! Never got a chance to sit back and listen to the bands they'd have in the evenings...next time, I guess

I am aware that I could have stopped in here on an off day... The food was yummy. Great spot to grab a drink and something to eat right off the beach. The waiter was out right rude to us on arrival. We thought it must have been a fluke and we brushed it off. Then the busser grabbed our plates to clear them from the table while we were still eating. We had to ask her to give them back. We thought that was weird but again, probably not normal and we brushed it off... Then she did it again with our drinks. We had a beer & a coke both half full and she walked by and grabbed them and we again had to ask her to give them back. The hospitality In Nosara is usually fantastic so we decided to leave this resturant and finish having more drinks elsewhere. There were other parties playing games and having drinks at their tables so the way the staff was behaving toward us (forcing us out) was very strange.
