Very busy and fun place in Nosara. The prices are really good and the food was quite tasty. The casados were really good.

The food was not great, the portions were quite small and the prices are average. Probably would not eat here again....disappointingly, we ended up there 3 times because of social commitments.

KayaSol has a really great chef and super filling dishes - but they have gotten too expensive for my tastes. If you want a $14 entree there are better places to go in Nosara - BUT its a pretty laid back place with great service and a fantastic pool for a midday dip.

Nice decor. Had the chicken tacos. It was deconstructed, like a fajita, but the meat was too salty. The guacamole was fresh, and the salsa was average. Others enjoyed their meal, but it wasn't anything special.

I love their nachos -- their tortilla chips are made to order in house and SO good. They also have my favorite breakfast in the area.

Quality tasty food in a sports bar open air beach environment. Clean restaurant bar with lots of food choices for all taste buds. English speaking pleasant service, no hassles ordering. Reasonable prices and large portions. Had the seafood burrito, great flavors and well prepared, comes with salad. Later had the saute fish and shrimp with pasta and veggies. Don't miss... More

We ate at Kaya Sol twice during our week in Nosara and it was clearly the best value for generous portions and great food. We had the casados which were huge enough for our post surf appetites and delicious. We had fish casados (mahi mahi and tuna) and they were the largest and most perfectly cooked pieces of fish we...

The place has a nice vibe and some of the better prices in nosara. (Still expensive). Had some average pub food but they brought in a Latino duet to sing on a Saturday night. Was great. Stayed for a few too many una mas.

Great place to watch the games and Emerson does a great job at the drinks. We are creatures of habit and when it works don't fix it. We have gone to Nosara for the past two years and each year this is one of our staples for food and drink.

Kitchen Manager: Jorge does a great job giving us a wide range of good food - he cares about his work and his customers. I am veggie and love the Curry Bowl and know for a fact he has the best veggie burger in town. JC, the head waiter always has a small, stays on top of his customer and... More
