“Watch the town go by”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Easily located right on the turn off into the small town of Nuevo Arenal. Good service even though the place was full for dinner on a Saturday night. We went with another couple and we each got pizza. It was nice size for two people and we could order half and half so I was able to get my blue cheese, which was delicious. We sat near the front so got good views of all the passers by and local interaction among the locals (both Ticos and expats).

“Dinner for Travelers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Great wraps and pizza for travelers wanting their fix of American style food. The Chicken/Curry salad was nicely spiced.

“Decent pizza. A good place. Don't drive by.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

I figured Moya was a lady. No, he is a hard-working nice young fellow with a good personality. We stayed close by and had we known, we would have stayed at his place behind the restaurant. The pizza was really good with 8 pieces! It served three of us and we were full. We also saw some other dishes come out and unless you have a big appetite, better share them as well. This guy gives you your money's worth, something not always experienced in CR. When you order pizza, ask them to NOT burn the crust on the bottom, as that was our only gripe. Otherwise excellent cuisine!
