Great food, great prices, great service

A friend and I were in la Fortuna for the night and we came across this lovely pizzeria. All the prices were very good for travelers on a budget as well as the drinks too!

Arrived in La Fortuna in the evening. This resturant was on the main road thru town and had a crowd so decided to eat pror to checking in hotel. The crowd was tour busses bringing people in large groups. Probably because it is cheap. By far the least attractive food of our 3 week trip to Costa Rica. There are... More

This restaurant had very reasonable prices and the food was good for the price you got it for. The service was very good and our waiter took the time to help us learn some phrases in Spanish. The food I had was pretty good I had a small pizza, salad and fruit plate. The pizza was alright but not the... More

My husband and I were recommended this place by a tour guy so we decided to check it out for ourselves. This restaurant is located in front of the church and next to many souvenirs shops. I ordered a pepperoni pizza (very, very cheesy) and my husband ordered a Lomita (beef tenderloin), both were good and the prices are affordable.

This place is a bit pricier than others but the food is really tasty, especially their deep dish style pizzas. The portions are also very big, so if you don't eat a lot, you could easily split dishes. We came here every day for dinner. Service is quick and good. Staff are friendly. Even leave out water bowls for the... More

La parade is conveniently located on the main square in La Fortuna. It has a little bit of a cafeteria feel, but has good food and good service.

We decided to stop here after seeing how busy it was the night before. We ordered a pizza, it was good but had way too much queso. The service was excellent. The prices are affordable and you get a large portions of food. I would eat here again and try something different.

This restaurant is nothing special but the food was good and filling. We were also eating as a party of 13 and we were seated and served very quickly which made a nice change for a party of our size in Central America.

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 good. Price was right. Right... More
