A outstanding restaurant at the top of the hillside on the grounds of Giardino Tropicale. Perfectly prepared meals, exquisite seafood variations- don't miss the grilled to perfection yellowfin tuna with their special garnishing sauce on top. The salads made from the freshest local produce is a treat and their special dressing is light and refreshing. Outstanding wood oven pizza made... More

Great atmosphere, excellent food and great service. It was surprising to find local lamb and buffalo in the menu. Tasteful and great presentation. Highly recommend a visit to this great place in Nosara.

At someone's suggestion, we tried Le Bistrot and we were not disappointed. We started with the Ceviche Peruvian and it was excellent (large enough to share). I then had the wood fire roasted fish (red snapper that night) with capers, tomatoes, garlic and maybe a white wine sauce. It was superb and I am picky about fish which is usually... More

The prices here are a little on the astronomical side. I enjoyed the only vegetarian option, the ravioli. The sauce was delicious and made in front of us. I especially liked the addition of the capers and olives in the sauce. It probably came with around 10 or less ravioli and it was $15 for the meal. I wish we... More

Everything about this place screamed beware! The drinks contained sprite as a lemon flavor, for a martini, etc. the wine was terrible. The ambiance was very strange and we ended up just walking out . I do not recommend this place to my worst enemy!

We have both stayed and eaten here two years in a row for a week at a time. It never disappoints. Two foodie adults and two kids (one who is allergic and the other a picky eater) always found delicious and healthful choices! Don't miss the lamb masala, seafood risotto and the tipico breakfasts downstairs by the pool. Gorgeous sunsets... More

Fresh fish dishes, beef, buffalo, pastas, and stone oven pizzas. Very reasonable with a well planned and executed menu. My favorite restaurant during our stay
