Ate here 3 times in two weeks after eating here the previous year. You cannot fault the food it's absolutely top notch. Service is perfect, you hardly notice waiter/waitress are there till you want them, and then they are waiting to attend to you instantly. Setting is beautiful overlooking the sea. I would highly recommend this restaurant, for couples and... More

We only ate here once but that was only because there were other perfectly good restaurants closer to where we were staying. I had pizza and while the whole thing was good, the base was exceptional. Generally pizza bases are either so thin they go soggy in moments or thick and stogdy. This didn't fall into either of those traps.... More

We tried this restaurant after reading about it on here. We are now so glad we went as it's become one of our top 2 restaurants and favourite places to eat whilst here. It was very quiet when we went but that didn't put us off at all. We have our two children with us but they are adults and... More

Another lovely meal, we have visited this restaurant on previous visits to Playa Blanca and are never disappointed. My husband had the sword fish which was excellent and I had a chicken dish which I can't remember the exact name of but it was delicious. Some great cocktails to finish the evening. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. We will... More

Both cooked in wood fired oven. You were given complimentary warm fresh bread with various oils and olives. It was very quiet when we arrived however this was... More

The pizzas were soggy on the base having too much tomato topping which had soaked through. The pasta was okay but with not much flavour. There was little atmosphere when we visited at 7:30pm. Maybe we were too early. Would not unfortunately return since we had better meals in other restaurants.

Situated above the Burger King in the Papagayo centre, we went here after reading all the good reviews on TA. I ordered the Lasagne and a side dish of peppers. The lasagne was very nice but I wasn't impressed with the cold, oil covered peppers. If that is how they eat them in Italy, well, they are welcome to them.... More
