Nosara offers a variety of dining experiences as a result of its diverse mixture of cultures from Europe, the Caribbean and Mexico. Diners can find a variety of tastes to wet their palate, ranging from traditional Greek food at La Luna restaurant to pizzerias. Other restaurants offer healthful choices for vegetarians and those interested in macrobiotic foods, such The Village and Kaya Sol.
Dining options cross the board, from $5 bacon, egg and gallo pinto (rice and beans) plates at Rosi’s to high-end Italian dining at La Dolce Vita. Of course, there is plenty of traditional Costa Rican fare as well as American favorites including burgers and chicken fingers. For a great steak or giant pork chops, stop by Marlin Bill’s. Or visit Freddie’s La Casona to feed a pizza craving or for a taste of authentic local cuisine. La Basilica and Giardino Tropical are also favorites for great pizza. And Dos Lorena’s has great casados and Rancho Tico is known for their typical Tico menu. For sunset dining , don’t mIss Lagarta Lodge. And if you are looking for a nice quiet dinner, stop by Casa Romantica (reservations recommended).
