Cashew cheese, and more cashew cheese. I'm not even a vegetarian and I love this place. Wholesome, tasty meals topped off with tons of cold water and frozen lemonade. Enough said.

I can't say enough about this place! We live in Tamarindo and make the 2 hour journey to Samara every now and then and LuvBurger is sort of the unspoken reason. We love Samara anyway but being mostly raw and vegan my wife and I look forward to getting a little fix of the super tasty comfort food. The burgers... More

Visited Samara again, and had to stop at Luv Burger. The helados and batidos (ice cream and smoothies) were awesome; very thick, fruity and refreshing. Had a large side order of sweet potato rosemary fries, and they were incredible. So was the homemade ketchup. Prices are high, but that's common in a touristy place like Samara. Our whole family couldn't... More

We would have tried something else, but we fell in love with the coco-bacon burger and the onion melt and couldn't switch! Our friend had the falafel burger and also couldn't switch, she was so happy with it. Ate here every single day of our vacation and still miss it. Such a great find for vegans! There's also Le Tigre... More

Before you order look around and evaluate how many other people are waiting for their food. The food here is good. But it is very SLOW. Be prepared to wait an hour for your veggie burger.

As i'm vegetarian for nearly 2/3 of my life i tried a lot of vegan and vegetarian "burger" and sandwiches by now and this was probably one of the best i ever had. If not the best... Staff is very friendly, food came quickly, cute place in the backyard so it's nice and quiet. Pricing is really fair for the... More

My sis had a veg burger, but I love hummus and dipping things and O My was it delicious. Enough for two or more. Excellent homemade hummus surrounded by perfectly cut slices of red pepper, carrot, cucumber, and corn tortilla wedges.

This was the best veggie burger we've ever had. Then we came back and had the best falafel burger we've ever had. If we all ate this way, we and the planet would last a lot longer.
