“Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We ate here for lunch one afternoon and our food was so good! I ordered the Happy Burrito, which was one of the best burritos I've ever had. My husband had a chicken wrap, which he said was delicious. And best of all, my very picky daughter (who'd had a hard time finding food she liked during our Costa Rica vacation) LOVED the calzone she ordered. The calzone was huge and fed her for two meals. The restaurant itself is very cute, nicely decorated. We thought the prices were a little high, especially when compared to Tinajas restaurant, which we had eaten at the night before. Also, the location on a busy street isn't the most scenic. But most importantly, the food was delicious!

Well, what to say, just check it out yourselves. The wraps are absolutely superb and come with a lovely salad. Good service and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

“"Wonderful food, and nicely priced."”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

My wife had the pesto pizza, yummy. I had the drunken chicken wrap and it was exceptional. We met Bob and Betty, who had moved from Vancouver to Nuevo Arenal, and they were loaded with information. They loved their new home, and I can see why. Highly recommend Moya's.

“Great food and service, authentic and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Moya's Place is one of the top restaurants in Nuevo Arenal, and makes the best pizza in the area. Their other dishes are well prepared, and have a very fair price as well. The staff is friendly, and the decor is VERY cool. Highly recommended!

“Moya's is a wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

Colorful atmosphere, wonderful food, and fun people pretty much sum up Moya's. It's also conveniently located at the top of the main street in Nuevo Arenal, so it's easy to find. We ate here about once a month while we lived in the area, and we were never disappointed! Moya's wife Robyn makes yummy desserts, so be sure to get one to go if you're too full ;)

We miss you Robyn and Graven!!
