Delicious!

Great thin crust pizza right on the beach! The service was prompt and friendly, and the pizza was fresh and there were tons of options. Try the salmon one! It can get full some nights, but if you are looking for a change from the local cuisine, this place is a good option.

We followed TA reviews an recommendations by local friends. We were thinking: Pizza in Nicaragua by the beach? Really? But We were pleasantly surprised. The pizza cooked on a brick oven was great tasting and made with fresh ingredients. We were a large group and arrived late. The place was packed, and some of the selections were not available. But...

Located on restaurant row, this establishment offers great views of the sunset and a tasty meal. Had the tomato bruschetta and a margherita pizza, both very good. The pizza scene has improved tremendously in the five years since I was last in town. Back then I was treated to pizza with ketchup instead of tomato sauce (not at this restaurant).... More

I have to visit every time I go San Juan del Sur and try a new pizza, because everything is so authentic and delicious. The service is average, but the view couldn't get any better right there on the beach.

fulfilled our pizza craving but wasn't anything special. a bit more on the expensive end (think the pizzas were like $12-18) but it could definitely feed two people and it was right on the beach.

This was a wonderful surprise in Nicaragua! Very good pizza that is more than enough to feed two! We ordered 2 for 3 people and had leftovers! Great view of the bay!

We visited this restaurant for supper. I had the ham and mushroom pizza which was extremely good, and my boyfriend had the Italian sausage pasta. Very good value for money, lovely view and atmosphere. One very small criticism was the Spanish guy who played the guitar during the meal which was loud and a bit obtrusive, especially when he then... More
