The tacos were great and the atmosphere of this place is great. Just one word of warning, Marquita's on that Tuesday were pre-mixed and awful!!!! We stopped by the night before and had the Marquita's and they were wonderful, NOT pre-mixed. Go & enjoy, but drink something else!

We visited numerous times during our stay. Carlos was a wonderful bartender and server. He was super friendly! Taco Tuesday is fun and Burger night is awesome. Most of all the carrot cake was out of this world. We especially love the friendly staff and Jordonny!!

The Harbour Reef Restaurant was our go-to place in Nosara. They have a very friendly and laid back atmosphere. The food was tasty, very fresh with generous portions. Loved the swim up bar too.

If you need to cool off, their pool bar is the place to be! It's small, but actually pretty deep, and there are bar stools in the water. Bartenders are all really friendly and really take care to make excellent cocktails. Definitely try the Pipa Loca - they took a pipa fria (coconut water) and added pineapple juice and rum.... More

The food was great here! My group ate here 3-4 times, you have to try the amazing Rae burger it has peanut butter which sounds gross but it's the polar opposite.

Worst food we had on our trip. No one liked what they ordered. Overpriced too. Surf pics on te tv and bikinis in the pool are the only draw I see.

Stayed at Harbor Reef and ate most breakfast there most days. Good food and reasonable prices. Continental breakfast with local fresh fruit was great

We went in to enjoy the margaritas! Bartenders are friendly and efficient. They have large flat screen Tvs so we sat at the bar. We didn't eat there however I heard the guys next to me say they've never had a bad meal there.

The Reef Restaurant is a great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. there is a nice pool where children really have a good time. Here you can drink a coffee or a glass of wine while you work with your laptop getting our free wi-fiour food is amazing and our prices are the best, in the opinion of many customers who enjoy a healthy approach to relate quality - price
