Stop there and have a mean! It is a must! We had the pizza and it was great. I was snoopping to see what others had and it looked like very good food. Would have liked to try it again.

Moya's is hands down my favorite place to eat in Nuevo Arenal. The food is fabulous and there are planty of vegetarian options- favorites are the Pesto Pizza, Mushroom Ravioli, and happy bunny wrap. The owners are truly genuine and wonderful people. They have a great staff and free Wi-Fi! The murals and ambiance are fantastic. I love to sit... 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!

We ate here for lunch one afternoon and our food was so good! I ordered the Happy Burrito, which was one of the best burritos I've ever had. My husband had a chicken wrap, which he said was delicious. And best of all, my very picky daughter (who'd had a hard time finding food she liked during our Costa Rica... More

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.
