Good Pizza

The pizza was excellent. Be sure and get the onion rings as an appetizer. One in our party had a burger - OK but a bit under cooked. Stick with the pizza.

The food was good, we had a water that was not friendly, he was actually grumpy and uninviting. We also had a waitress who was nice and friendly. The food came out fast, smoothie was good, 2 pizzas and 2 drinks for about $28 with tip.

Another delightful restaurant in which to dine al fresco in Manuel Antonio. While the menu offers many items, go for the pizza. You can watch them make it, and see it delivered hot and fresh to your table. Thin but not too thin crust, and generous with the toppings. I actually tasted the mushrooms for a change!

We took the bus from the Manuel Antonio Beach and returned by taxi to our hotel. The service at El Wagon was fast, the atmosphere was relaxing and nicely lit. The rocking chairs were very unique. We ordered 3 pizzas for our family of 5 along with an order of onion rings. The service was speedy and the food was... More

This is a nice relaxing eatery. The pizza is some of the best with thin crust. Service was great and good for those with kids.

We got a pizza to share it was excellent! Wish they offered side salads as I usually like salad with my pizza. There is no ocean view but very lush and we got to see a sloth in the tree that an employee kindly pointed out!!

There are three different styles restaurants from the same owner close to each other by the road, BBQ, El Avion, and El Vagon. Every restaurant has its own nice atmosphere and deserves of attention. We stopped at El Vagon, waiters was very friendly and attentive. Price for 12" pizzas is about 15$ and Pizza El Vagon was tasty. We also... More

Ate here one night in the open air restaurant. Looks an identical fit out to two other nearby places, all must be linked. Parking outside. Saw squirrel monkeys on phone lines outside. Pizza was good but not exceptional. Service was not friendly. It got very busy layer on.
