The pizza was very good; I ordered 2 pies and 1 entree when 1 pie and an entree would be sufficient. Service was disjointed, my daughters came out first, my order came out 10 minutes later then my wives 5 minutes after that. I asked for a wine list; none existent. The mojito I ordered had very little alcohol. If... More

We went here twice while staying at Costa Verde, and although the pizza was wonderful, the service was really terrible. Both times we had to wait for someone to even bring us a menu for about 10 minutes, and then the food took almost 45. The other restaurants at Costa Verde are much better.

My 17 year-old son says everyone who visits Manuel Antonio should spend an evening at El Wagon. It was seriously one of the most unique dining experiences we've ever had. Imagine an open-air restaurant surrounded by jungle, relaxing in rocking chairs at your table, howler monkeys swinging by, and tasty wood-fired pizza. This is how we spent our last night... More

The food and drinks were good. I'd say the price for a lunch is a little high. I would consider eating dinner here for the price. The drinks and bartender were good, but our waiter was not very happy to be there. I would order the pizza again, but get takeout and walk it to the beach for a better... More

The food, the atmosphere, the incredible mosaics on the floor, the resident sloth make this place a definite to take friend, family and guests. The wood burning oven and the hand thrown dough make this a wonderful place to visit. The prices are fantastic!!!!!

We ate here twice - once for a lunch of chicken wraps and once for dinner of calamari followed by pizza. The pizza was remarkable. Thin tasty crust you have a hard time finding in the US. Generously topped with quality ingredients. We had 2 pizzas and calamari - too much food but so good. Drink options and prices are... More

When you and/or your kids are ready for a taste of US pizza this is a great choice! Thin crust and traditional US seasonings on a wood fired pizza. We had a great meal and it was very fairly priced. A nice break from being adventurous eaters, especially for a 10 & 12 year old.
