We ate here a couple of times while staying at the restaurant. The portions where good sized however the quality wasn't great. Felt it was a little too overpriced for what was served. However, the staff were very friendly & welcoming.

Best place to watch great football (soccer). Interesting menu, wait staff who know what the chef can do for folks with food allergies. Younger clientele, but older folks welcome.

After a dusty walk around town I happened upon Kaya Sol and was so pleased with the visit. The fish tacos were delivered as a "roll your own" platter. Three nice-sized delicious pieces of MahiMahi are surrounded by guacamole, queso, salsa fresco and other trimmings. An incredibly fantastic and tasty meal and much better than 'Taco Tuesday' at Harbor Reef.... More

After a month in Nosara I feel compelled to call out the best restaurants as a thank you for all the great meals. Kaya was one of our regulars, the staff were super friendly, the food consistently good. They also saved us when we showed up late on a Sunday night and no-one else was open, they re-opened the kitchen... More

During our six day stay in Nosara, we came to KayaSol three times. Each time we had the best drinks (margaritas, pina colada, daiquiri, Costa Rican craft brew) and the most delicious food. Definitely recommend!!!

Only found out about it on my last day in Guiones. Too bad, as I would have eaten here regularly during my 10-day visit, had I known how good it was. Had an excellent vegetable and fish curry.

I really love to eat at Kaya Sol. The staff is extremely friendly and they will go out of their way to serve you and see to it that you have everything you need. Juan Carlos, Emerson, Francis and Jorge and the rest are just a great group of people. We ate there at least every other day and we... More
