Good pizza, plenty of locals!

We were actually looking for another pizza place when we settled for this one. They had a decent menu and inside on the left, was some real Costa Rica cuisine. The pizza here was very good, not too thin, but definitely not a thick crust. Really just about right! Flavor was good and service was... read more

So we were in La Fortuna for 3 days and we wish we would've stumbled on this place earlier! Very good food, great prices (compared to everything else in town) and our best meal in La Fortuna yet. We had lunch for about $18 that included: Casona de carne (beef in tomato sauce), chicken breast in garlic butter sauce, tostones... More

We were directed here by the owner of the hotel where we were staying. He said they had a good variety of food and good prices. This was absolutely true. The food was good, but not amazing. We paid about $13 for two dinners, so no complaint about the price!

We enjoyed the meals here.Breakfasts were copious and the platters of fruit were large. There was good choice of dishes in the evening and the restaurant is popular with locals and tourists alike.

Nothing special, but very convenient and cheap. I would definitely recommend if you're on a budget but there are also lots of other sodas to go to if you're on a budget as well.

Shown table fast But no waiter, so after some time cashier called us for the order (we were sitting directly in front of him). Halfway through the order waitress came by and said she'll tale the order. We waited quite some time but nothing came, not even the cocktail, Costa Rica Delight. I spoke to cashier and only then the... More

We loved this place last year. The location is great, in the middle of town overlooking the park and church. We came here one of our first days in town for lunch and the waiter seemed a bit annoyed to wait on us. It was only my wife and I and my wife speaks spanish so we are pretty easy... More

Recommended by a local-so our favorite kind of place to try. Chips and pico are great! Pastries in the glass case were really good. Rice and chicken was good. Pizza is just ok. There is also a cafeteria style line with many local dishes. Service was good. Very casual place that hit the spot when we were hungry!

Definitely not the best pizzeria nor restaurant in La Fortuna. The pizza dough is nothing special and the toppings are scarce. We are not going back

Came here on the recommendation of our Costa Rican guide. Patrons mixed between "locals" and some tourists. Nice and quick service , HUGE hamburger, and my garlic chicken was quite good, but oily. Drinks are good. Overrall, average local joint, with Costa Rican cuisine. Certanly not gourmet.
