THE RESTAURANT AND BAR AT THE GILDED IGUANA

Welcome to the focal point of The Gilded Iguana. Since the 1980s, our bar and restaurant has been many things to many people: a surfer hangout, a nightlife spot, a community meeting place, and everything in between. Come to experience the best in Nosara, Costa Rica restaurants and stay for the fresh food, inventive cocktails, and live music.

On the Menu

Mediterranean cuisine with Costa Rican fusion

From breakfast to lunch, dinner, and cocktails, The Gilded Iguana has you covered. Try the fresh catch of the day or our selection of pizzas, pastas, and burgers – and don’t sleep on the casados, a Costa Rican meal of rice, beans, sweet plantains, and salad. We offer vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free options and a kids menu.
