Romantic Dining

Located on the hilltop overlooking Nosara, need a 4WD or ask us to arrange a taxi. 20min drive.

We love coming up here for a special occasion, to take in the view, enjoy the specialty drinks and fresh food! We love the appetizers!  Come up early for dinner to catch the beautiful sunset and enjoy the famous swing over Nosara!

Pacifico Azul


Local Seafood

Open daily 12pm - 10pm

Across the street from Nalu

Amazing lunch or dinner spot to sample the local cuisine and local seafood, although they also have great steak! The setting is beautiful in the garden and it is the closest restaurant to Nalu.  They also do takeout!

Olivia's Pizzeria & Guiones Brew Co


Thin crust Pizza and local craft Beer

Open Monday - Saturday 4 - 10pm

Located next to the mini-super in North Guiones

We love the super thin crust pizza with fresh ingredients! And the local brew is awesome.  The location is right in the center of town next to the mini super and several nice shops to check out while you dine!  Our favorite is the Lourdes pizza!

After dinner, grab the local gelato at The Seekret Spot.



Best Brunch

Tuesdays - Sundays 6am - 3pm

It's the last house on the right when you walk to the beach from Nalu.

The creative coffees, the fresh smoothies and endless brunch choices, there is      definitely something for everyone!  Best place to refuel after the beach.

Open for breakfast, lunch & dinner

On Pelada Beach

Everyone comes for the sunset dinners, but we equally love the breakfast (open until 11am).  We love to let the kids play in the tide pools out front when the tide is low. Everything is delicious here, including the view!  Our favorites are the whole red snapper, the ceviche and the kebob plate with all the sides. Brunch - Shakshouka eggs!
