Hi, Kristina S, Thank you very much for taking the time to read our menu. In the following days we are introducing some new options that we strongly believe will be an important addition. In your next visit you can enjoy for example a delicious Shrimps pizza (highly recomended). We hope you enjoyed your visit to Que Rico Restaurant, the volcano views and our waiters service.

“Left me speechless...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I had the pleasure of visiting Que Rica twice in the last week...today´s experience was wonderful. Some new menu items to please the taste buds! Mine Tilapia stuffed with shrimp and a delicious shrimp sauce on top... others looked great too...sirloin and Chicken Romero. Of course the Bacio Periguano dessert is to die for - the perfect mix of hot and cold. The service was great, as always and prices are accessible. Two thumbs up! ...also white wine pritzer with fresh fruit was as beautiful as it was delicious...there are of course plenty of homemade pizza and pasta options too.

“Fantastic food, friendly staff, definitely worth visiting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Came here for dinner on our last night in town. The staff was incredibly friendly, and took the time to get to know our names as well as teaching us a few key phrases in Spanish. The food was exceptionally good, in particular the Fettucini 3 funghi was incredible. Great atmosphere as well.

Hi Jayson G.
We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed your last dining experience in Arenal at Que Rico Restaurant.
Our goal is having 100% of satisfied customers. If you felt on your visit that "staff was incredibly friendly" and "food exceptionally good" seems we must keep up the hard work.
The Fetuchinni 3 Funghi is one of the preferred dishes for frequent and new clients.
It will be a pleasure to have you visiting us again in Costa Rica and of course at Que Rico Restaurant!

“Yum”

Excellent pizza! Fast friendly delivery to our hotel also. Highly recommended. Fresh, hot, and a very thin crust. Hamburgers were delicious as well.

Hi VioletVox.
Thank you for taking time to write your positive comment.
It is especially important to us to receive your feedback because it is not that usual for us to have comments from customers that requested delivery service. We are glad you consider our pizza "highly recommended" in addition to the hamburgers. Our pizza is cooked in our brick oven, the traditional Italian way our clients love.
We have great improvements coming soon like a shortcut with our delivery service through our facebook/QueRicoArenal, streaming live broadcast, etc.
But our first step before that will be to guarantee our guests satisfaction with quality and service for delivery and those that prefer to come directly to our restaurant.
Thank you very much,
Cesar Rojas
