Restaurants in Nosara

It’s has become too hard for us to select our favorites since owners/cook change every year. He is just a list of places we eat.

In the Project:

PLACES WE ATE IN 2010/2011

La Dulce Vida $$$

On the way to Garza. Near Yoga Institute. Italian/seafood was to die for. Our favorite place right now. Same Italian owner for more than a decade. Pricey – $150/5 people – no drinks.

Marlin Bill’s $$$
Best dinner in town. Best fish I have ever had. Great service.

Robin’s Ice Cream $$
Down the street from Cafe Paris. Great gourmet sorbet and ice cream. Incredible breakfast and dessert crepes.

The Gilded Iguana $$
Tuesday night is live music night. Still my favorite place to just hangout and have a beer. Its within walking distance from the house. All meals. Full bar. Very popular with long-term Project Nosara residents.

Giardino Tropicale $$
Right around the corner from the house on the main road. Awesome, cheap pizza. Eat-in or take-out. Full bar.

Beach Dog Cafe

Great little beach cafe near harbour Reff. Great wraps and free wi-fi / US calls.


Lagarta Lodge $$$
Get there in time for the sunset. New chef and sunset bar. Great food. Call ahead.

Harbor Reef $$
Recently changed management.

La Luna $$$
One of the best meals and most romantic spots in Nosara but the service is painfully slow. Located on the beach just before the entrance into the Hotel Nosara. You can have an incredible meal and watch the waves break on the beach just 50 yards away.

Cafe de Paris $$
All meals. Full bar. Internet Cafe. Bakery. Great/cheap place for pizza to go.

Casa Tucan $$
Tyler Marsh also owns the surf school and is doing a great job of rebuilding this business. Quickly becoming the new surfer hangout.

Panchos Mexican Food
Slow service but descent food.
