Well, what to say, just check it out yourselves. The wraps are absolutely superb and come with a lovely salad. Good service and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

My wife had the pesto pizza, yummy. I had the drunken chicken wrap and it was exceptional. We met Bob and Betty, who had moved from Vancouver to Nuevo Arenal, and they were loaded with information. They loved their new home, and I can see why. Highly recommend Moya's.

Moya's Place is one of the top restaurants in Nuevo Arenal, and makes the best pizza in the area. Their other dishes are well prepared, and have a very fair price as well. The staff is friendly, and the decor is VERY cool. Highly recommended!

Colorful atmosphere, wonderful food, and fun people pretty much sum up Moya's. It's also conveniently located at the top of the main street in Nuevo Arenal, so it's easy to find. We ate here about once a month while we lived in the area, and we were never disappointed! Moya's wife Robyn makes yummy desserts, so be sure to get... More

It is a wrap that I have eaten regularly and it comes with a side of a very special fresh coleslaw. Everybody here goes there for a casual and fun time. Not like there is anything wrong with the pizza and the rest of a complete menu but it certainly isn't the same, same as any other.

The pizza was delicious, especially the Loudmouth (I think it was called)! Service was also excellent. I enjoyed the chicken curry dish as well. My husband had an Italian style wrap and liked it.

Yummy pizza and great, funky decor. The food was reasonably priced and we liked that the restaurant was welcoming to tourists. The owners spoke English well, which was a bonus. We ate hear twice in one week. Very comfortable place to hang out.

First, the house wine at only $4 was a bargain. The food was very good. The indoor/outdoor layout of the restaurant is great. The owner/manager/staff were terrific and made our kids feel welcome. This is not a "family restaurant", simply a very good casual restaurant that is accommodating to a family with kids. This was a great dinner choice for... More
