Pizza with a view

We stopped to share a pizza and watch people and vendors hanging out across the street at the park and church. We enjoyed the cold beer and the people watching.

We enjoyed driving a few minutes down the volcano to the town of San Carlos, La Fortuna, on the flank of Volcano Las Arenas, for meals at La Parada. It's an open air restaurant facing the town square, with an Helados Bon on the next corner. The food was tasty and plentiful.

Restaurant is on the main drag and can be noisy from street noise. Food was good and very friendly staff. Menu in English available.

We initially wanted to go to the number one spot on tripadvisor but showing up with 7 people and no reservation was a bad idea. So or wonderful tour guide took us top this place.

My family really liked eating here for lunch. The Restaurante is conveniently located in the center of town and the menu is extensive, something for everyone! The food was fresh and delicious. The waitstaff was very attentive and spoke very good English. We even went back later for desert.
