Fun open air wood fired pizza

Great place. Pizzas are great but they do burgers and wraps etc., too. Always a fun atmosphere. Check out the exceptional artwork of the floor!

After 5 years of visiting many areas in Costa Rica, finally A Real Pizza. The crust was crisp with nice bubbling from the wood fire,the sauce flavorful, and the toppings plentiful. The open air theme is joined by a Huge outdoor wood oven and an attached train car dining area. I was told that during the late afternoon, a group... More

Nice casual restaurant, reasonably priced with an open air theme-lots of ceiling fans. The pizza's are wood fired and you can watch them being made. The outer tables all have rocking chairs which are quite comfortable. We missed them, but we have been told by others that the monkeys visit every night and put on quite a show. A very... More

The wood oven pizza was delicious and their burgers are so HUGE, it was hard to finish one even though we were starving from our walking tour of Manuel Antonio park!

All of the great reviews are well deserved … one of the best wood-fired oven pizzas we have had in a long time! Prices were good, service excellent. Definitely recommend El Wagon!

We went here with our little ones and it really took a long time to get the pizza. It seemed like someone had placed a take out order of around 12 pizzas but no one bothered to tell us that it would take well over an hour for us to get the food. After our kids fell asleep at the... More

The staff was incredible, the pizza was amazing, seriously crispy & thin with great toppings. Big tables for families and small tables for couples. I am a train buff, so our waiter, Glen, gave us a tour of the authentic train car that is in the restaurant. We will definitely be back.

A must do for pizza and a brew. Great ambiance. Restaurant is an actual train car. Brick oven pizza is amazing. We talk about this place all the time when deciding what we want to eat.

But this was by far the worst service we've had in CR. Our "server" was grumpy right off the bat and after we ordered we didn't see him again. Although I can appreciate he was busy, I'd at least like something when I'm paying a 10% service tax. If I ate here again it would be take out only.
