Great food and service. Bit of a walk but so worth it. We had desert/coffee the first night and then came back for the full experience. You must have the gelato for desert!

Our family had a great meal here. We shared the Bruschetta as an appetizer- very,very good. We had the sea bass prepared 2 different ways- with lemon sauce was the best but the tomatoes, capers and olives was a close second. The tagliatelle pasta, as well as all their pastas are homemade and excelent. The pizza was very good as... More

Enjoyed an excellent dinner there with a great salad, great thin crust pizza and home made pasta. Pasta was the special of the day, fettuccine with wodka and bacon sauce, just wonderful! Great service as well.

We rented a house in Playa Grande for a week and ordered pizza to go one night from Cafe Del Pueblo. Everything was home made from the dough to the sauce and all the ingredients were so fresh. It was terrific and I would highly recommend to everyone!

We took our family to eat at Cafe Del Pueblo and couldn't have been happier. The food was sincerely outstanding. It was obvious that the pasta and sauces were homemade. The service was super friendly and attentive although the speed was typical of Playa Grande and not of the US. We learned to really enjoy the slow and deliberate pace... More

We were there in early April for their live Brazilian music night. Its a cute restaurant with super friendly service in a cool garden setting. We showed up with a party of 7 that included young kids. Even though the place was packed they made an effort to make us feel welcome and squeeze us in. Folks seemed to like... More

Excellent service and excellent food! Don't miss this little gem if you visit Playa Grande Costa Rica. We went twice in the 10 days we were in the area - and would have gone more if we had discovered it sooner! Prices are reasonable and everything was fresh and delicious.

The woman who is the owner of this cafe is so friendly that you not only don't feel you are in a different country but also she greets you like your grandma would. Loved the coffee and carrot cake!

We fell in love with Cafe del Pueblo the first time we came to CR, and have become fast friends with Alexandra. It's hard to explain how this little oasis on the road to Playa Grande can be so special, but it has everything to do with Alexandra making you feel so welcome while preparing you a fabulous meal.
