Good food, good prices.

Decent food, but great view off the side of the hill it is perched on. Saw a howler monkey in the trees close to the restaurant.

We ate here twice. Here is why it got a rare 5/5 from me! The its night I picked up 2 burgers and 2 dogs to go. I paid an arm and a leg and the take out service was a bit slow, but come on, you're in Latin America so relax a bit, right? As I'm leaving I notice,... More

We had a lovely meal here. The place is quite big and gets very busy. The staff are nice enough. The pizzas are lovely, all freshly made in front of you. Great place if you fancy a no fuss meal.

I'm not a pizza lover, but everyone else at the table said the pizza here was excellent and a good break from all the traditional food we had been eating all week.

Very good pizza from the Wood over, and very fast service You can sit in the wagon or in the heavy rocking-chairs and enjoy the jungle around you.

Well when your out of the country and looking for a good pizza I would suggest this place. Open fire burning oven, nice protion of food and great pricing for the family. Went to this place twice while on vacation. One of my favorite places

Big raves and reviews. Price is good. That's all! Cool to watch them cook in outside oven but they remove way before veggies are near tender. Minimal selection. Do yourself a favor and go to Biblo's! They have amazing pizza!!!!

The whole place was busy and buzzing when we went in. We visited twice, first time we got wraps and fries which were great. Second time we went back for pizza as people raved about it. Pretty cool to sit on the rocking chairs and watch the guys make pizza right in front of you. Pizza was good, but just... More

We stopped here on our way back from manuel antonio national park. This place had great food. We ordered pizza, hot dogs, fries and chicken nachos. Everything was good and reasonably priced. Our total bill was @$35. The coolest part was that the dining area was open to the rain forest and while we ate a group of monkeys came... More

Andres was our fantastic waiter. The pizza was exceptional but I was in the mood for a hot dog. After eating the two pizzas, I let my grandchildren taste my hot dog. We had to order three more and came back again on our way out of town to have another round. Fun place and there was a sloth hanging... More
