Ordered 4 pizzas and 2 salads takeaway during superbowl afternoon. 90 USD seemed very expensive. Both salads were the wrong orders, and we were charged service charges also on takeout food. All in all disappointing for a place that used to be decent - but hey; if you enjoy run-of-the-mill 20 dollar pizzas then the seating area is reasonably cozy.... More

We have eaten here in previous years and found the food and service to be excellent. Tonight was a very diffferent experience. The available menu is different from what is on their website. I had the snapper in shrimp sauce. The snapper was so overcooked it was unetible. The menu said it came with mashed potatoes and asparagus - I... More

Love the pizza here--thin crust; wood oven; one pizza per couple or one each and bring left overs home. Sangria very fruity and yummy. No a/c and very warm so dress cool/casual.

I'm not real sure how to rate a pizza place that burns the pizza each and every time I have been there. Not a little. A lot. Most of the other food was alright though. Not returning to this area as there is absolutely nothing worth being here for unless you are an avid surfer and then there are many... More

We've been there two days in a row since it was incredibly delicious the first time! Pizzas are a must, wine is good and desserts are amazing! Special remarks for the lava cake and the passion fruit cheesecake! Price-wise, this restaurant is one of the cheapest for its category and worth a stop.

This place is a great option for when you decide it's time to change it up from rice and beans for a night. The setting is beautiful, service was friendly and the ingredients were noticeably fresh.

Best Pizza in Playa Grande and the whole Tamarindo area! Fresh ingredients and the tower of tuna appetizer comes highly recommended - was one of the best that we sampled on our visit! Nice outdoor dining and great service - thanks to Melisse! We visit this area every so many years and a dinner or several to El Husrto is... More
