Nice little place

My family stopped into El Barrigon on our way to white water rafting. There is not much around but we stopped in for a snack, drink and a bathroom break. Everyone was very nice and friendly and spoke decent English. We didn't stay long but I was thankful for the service and clean bathrooms.

Unbelievably good pizza in Los Chilies! It was amazing to find such a good pizza restaurant in this very small town.

Good local food, friendly staff, convenient location right off the highway. We stopped by for a late lunch and a medium pizza was enough food for 2 plus a light dinner.

Something for everyone, some of us wanted to eat local food and I had a cassado, the best one I had In Costa Rica. Some of our group wanted pizza and they said it was good. Like most restaurants in Costa Rica it was an open sided high ceiling structure so the breeze blows thru and gives a relaxing feeling.... More

We ordered up some nachos and pizza as well as a local dish and found the food to be delicious and filling. Everything was flavorful and prices were reasonable. It was worth a visit.

The smoked cheese pizza with spinach is unique and delicious! Fresh pineapple too is always a major plus.

Ate there twice with family of four, pizza doesn't get any better, anywhere. Wood-fired oven, great crust, sauce and cheeses.
