Enjoyed Breakfast entrees (omelette,Pancakes) served with Juice and fresh Fruit. Also a late lunch early dinner happy hour which we had the luxury of being the sole diners. My husband had the Lasagna and I enjoyed Chicken skewers. Both Excellent. Margaritas Outstanding. Service Terrific. Highly Reccomend. Outside dining at Sunset Spectacular.

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW

But the outstanding part of the visit was the cesar salad, incredible how something so simple can be so different here! Delicious!!! They provided "casados" options but i did not tried. Jumbo...

We'd read several reviews about how poor the food was, how expensive it was etc but in actual fact it was delightful. Breakfast was different from other hotels we'd stayed in - a more varied menu, much simpler. My only concern there was that the waiters didn't rotate often enough with the coffee. Evening meals were fine, plenty to eat... More

Our family was in Costa Rica for a week and ate at Nasu four times: breakfast, lunch, and dinner x2. The service was incredible, special thanks to Jose and Carlos who gave us an exceptional experience. The food was fresh and delicious, and the menu was amazingly extensive and diverse. The beachfront setting is beautiful any time of day. Breakfast... More

We were staying in beach near by Potrero. We visit Nasu with the idea of having a difference afternoon! The view of the restaurant is amazing but the real deal is the new menu. Chicken wings and sliders are top options. Service is good and the atmosphere is better!

This restaurant has a lovely view to the ocean. My two favorite menu items: ceviche and tuna tartar! I also recommend to go during sunset time as they have a happy hour and who doesn't like 50% off drinks!

I went to Nasu Restaurant for New Years Party, everything was amazing, from the food to the carnival and fireworks. We came back next day for lunch and enjoy some delicious plates like chicken nachos ( super big plate), the catch of the day and great cocktails. One of the best things of eating in Nasu is that the restaurant... More
