We stopped in and had a nice pineapple drink and split a wrap that was delicious. It was covered but open air. I highly recommend it if you are driving through town.

However be warned that if you decide to rent a car from Trebol rent a car in La Fortuna it will cost you dearly to get here. Condescending to gringo's they... More

For example, there is a chicken wrap with a blue cheese and white wine sauce, and a salad with curry chicken over greens. We've actually eaten there three times during our brief stay in Nuevo Arenal and all three times have been... More

This restaurant was charming and the pizza hit the spot. Menu had other options as well, so if you are not looking for pizza, I would still definitely recommend it!
