You won't find a more authentic Tamarindo restaurant experience than this. We visited twice for lunch on the beach and were never disappointed. Excellent fish tacos and Sangria. Remember to relax, slow down, and simply enjoy the experience. Service is a bit slow but that just gives you more time to enjoy the incredible setting and beauty of Tamarindo

We ate at Nogui on multiple occasions while walking the beach in Tamarindo. Tried a couple items but we enjoyed the ceviche the most. Grab a table beachfront in the shade and watch everything roll by.

We were lucky enough to be recommended this place by our surf instructor. After that we had lunch here three days running. The brightly coloured plantation chairs on the beach give the place a relaxed atmosphere before you even sit down. The views are amazing, surf gazing. The food delicious and plentiful. The menu is extensive. The tuna starter delicious,... More

Great spot for breakfast when there is a breeze. Doesnt get anymore ocean front than this. They are on pura vida time meaning service can be very slow but this is normal and I kind of like it because they dont rush you out when you just want to hangout. Best spot ON the beach for breakfast

I had a lovely salad with mango where they kindly exchanged mahi mahi for the chicken. Service was pretty fast and good until I ordered something to go. I ordered chicken tacos with nothing on them for my sick child. I said I would take the rice and beans that came with them on the side. But when I got... More

Visited for dinner on my last night in Tamarindo because I heard they gave great sunset views. I was too late, and I missed it! Ugh! I ordered breaded calamari for my appetizer. I did not enjoy it at all. They were heavily breaded and it was not served with the lemon slice that I have always received elsewhere. The... More

Terrific setting along Witches Rock area, food was good and priced. We were comfortable, too... which wasn't always easy considering it was 100+ while we were there.

After eating in Tamarindo all week, I'd say the food here is a little above average quality for beach food, and the service was good! Nice view of the length of Tamarindo beach, and also a great sunset view. We had fish tacos and ceviche, both were tasty!

We are here twice. Gorgeous Costa Rican vibe. First visit we ordered starters which were so enormous and yummy we had to cancel the main course because we were too full. It gave us another good reason to come back. One tip- if you're going there to watch the sun go down don't do what my husband did and spend... More

Food was very good. I had a lomito--steak--and it was quite good. Prices were high, as they are most places in Tamarindo. Service was horrible--as it is most places in Central America.
