We visited Luv Burger twice. 1 time for lunch and 1 time for dinner. Both experiences were good for us food quality wise. Our two vegeterian kids thought it was the best food of the trip. The service was beyond Costa Rica slow. And don't...More

Six weeks in Costa Rica, and this was by far the worst place we've eaten. Absolutely disgusting. It started badly with a warm beer. I returned it to the bar and requested a cold one. Almost 5 minutes passed with me waiting at the bar...More

They recently moved to beachfront so the location is wonderful. The "bacon" is crazy; it's coconut, smoked to have that bacony taste. The wife picked this place and we were both super satisfied. We've been a few times and never had anything that wasn't wonderful....More

The service here is really slow but you are sitting on a beach, so what's not to like? If you are a vegetarian, you can eat anything on the menu.

Samara has many fine places to eat, and Luv Burger is one of them. Formerly a small deli type cafe a few blocks off the beach, now it's a full-on restaurant with a great beach location. The food is tasty, the beer is cold, and...More

Are you Vegan, gluten free, hungry? This is the perfect, beach front eatery. Enjoy a sunset with a yummy smoothy, Yuka fries.

The vegetarian/vegan food is very good. And the atmosphere directly at the beach is very nice. Just the prices are too high.

Hi! Samara is a very tiny village, and everything is within easy walking distance. I don't have my little village map with me right now (we're in Vietnam), but I would guess it would take you about 5 minutes from your... More
