Not to say that this place is amazing on all fronts would be an insult! Kiré, name for "lizard" in the local Talamanca Bri-bri language (hence the restaurant's logo), is located near the entrance of Cocles beach in Puerto Viejo. It is a Grill, Bar & Restaurant run by authentic Argentinians; with very kind and forgiving hearts, I must add!... More

We had the supreme pizza and neapolitan pizza and they were both delicious. They have a red pepper oil to put on the pizza that made it even better. I would definitely eat here again!

This place was awesome..looked for a place to grab a quality Christmas meal with brother and this place didn't dissapoint. Service was great and the food was of great quality. Highly recommend stopping here instead of some of the below par places in the centre of Puerto Veijo

On Wednesdays they have all you can eat Pizza for around the price of one pizza elsewhere in town, 4500 colones. As I like to eat a lot this sounded like a great deal, however, the place was absolutely full and the three members of staff were not able to keep up with demand. So we ended up waiting over...

We were looking for good bbq and found these guys. I see a lot of reviews complaining of long waits. Should have stayed home then. The bbq was not lit when we arrived so we knew we would wait. Well worth it though. The "for 2" dinner was enough for 4 and delicious. Thank you gentlemen

We were looking for a place to have lunch and my girlfriend ended up selecting this place. I ordered pasta and my girlfriend ordered meat (Lomito) which had good flavor but the meat was hard to cut and eat. The service was a bit slow and the price was ok for the food ordered.

The pizza is super good here and for the best price in puerto. The traditional food is delicious as well! Try the patacones. It's a bit slow so be ready to grab a beer and wait awhile.

Went there for the All You can eat. Each round of Pizza took them 1-1.5 hours, although there weren't a whole lot of people at the beginning. The waitress was generally rather forgetful (had to ask for the menu/salt several times). Also, brought 50/50 pizzas instead of two separate ones. Typical all you can eat rip-off, since at some point,... More

Worst restaurant experience I've ever had, and I'm not picky. We did the 'all you can eat', which ended up being two rounds of pizza in 2.5 hours. Average pizza, with terrible, terrible singing from a guy who kept asking for tips. They refused to give us a takeaway box for the last round of pizza, and added a 10%... More

We ordered three pizzas between four of us and only two came. We asked the waitress how come one pizza hadn't arrived, and she said they'd run out of what they needed for that one - but they didn't tell us that. The dough wasn't very nice and just not worth waiting for (it took a long time even for... More
