Fun twist on pizza

Cute little place located in small of Malpais. Really friendly staff. Their speciality is pizza but especially the seafood pizzas. Really nice crust and fun size to share! Yummy drinks and Would definitely recommend this place!

The pizza here is outstanding...so is pretty much everything else on the menu/specials chalkboard! When my family of 4 was staying in the Santa Teresa area for 10 days, I think we ate here almost every other day! We were kinda on a fish taco-binge and Mary's fish tacos were not my favorite, but everything else was really good. We... More

The food here is great because it's very fresh. Veggies and chickens all come from their next door farm. The staff is friendly and it's a bit of a hike to get here from other parts of town but totally worth it. The pizzas were fantastic with all those farm ingredients for sure.

I had dinner at Mary's with a group of about 11 people which was perfect as we shared a few pizzas while playing pool. Fun setting and nice staff. I would definitely recommend Mary's~

The food here was excellent. They lived up to their fine local reputation. But look carefully at who may be playing pool and avoid the tables near those pool tables if necessary. A group of out of control kids started throwing balls around the table during our visit and we finally moved ourselves to get away from the racket.

Driving on a dirt road in Mal Pais, who would have imagined this gem? Yummy lamb lollipops, organic foods, great drinks & pool tables. A must for a dining treat.

Jim, the proprietor of Casa Marbella, referred us here, stating it was his current favorite. With an adjacent farm, it is a true farm-to-table establishment. We had the fish ceviche for an appetizer and our waiter recommended the Corvina tempura and the shrimp, bacon and goat cheese pizza. Neither of which I probably would have chosen on my own; however,... More

Since we stayed at Moana, we discovered Mary's was a great spot for dinner. The first night we went they had live music, which was such a treat. The guy with the guitar was so great, we didn't want to leave. I had the chicken and seafood platter and my husband had the seafood and it was fantastic. The service... More

We drove by there quite a few times through our times there, but since it was during the day we thought there wasn't much to see there - kinda dusty. After a few people in Santa Teresa mentioned how good it was we decided to give it a try. Wow what a difference at night. There's a nice and warm... More
