“Very Enjoyable Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

My partner and I enjoyed a very good lunch at Que Rico Arenal. We were looking for a restaurant in walking distance from another hotel where we were staying and found this delightful place. We enjoyed a traditional Casado (a dish with rice, black beans, meat or fish, fried plantain, fried egg and salad) with Pescado (fish). It was very good, although a little over priced, but for the resort area around Volcano Arenal, it was not out of line. It appeared Que Rico is know more its Italian dishes and pizza. We were happy with our traditional lunch. Recommended for travelers to the Arenal area.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We were driving to see the volcano and had seen the sign from the highway for this place and it looked very clean and had spectacular views of the area. We were graciously greeted by Rafael and from the moment we stepped in we were treated like royalty he was by far the most attentive and helpful server I have encountered here..The food...wow it was AMAZING and the wait time wasn't bad either..you have to try this gem if your anywhere near Arenal Volcano or Last fortuna!!

“Classy but casual, with a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Delicious pizza & more in a classy but comfortable & casual atmosphere. Huge windows let us enjoy the view as twilight fell. A very nice wine list, and our waiter was knowledgeable & helpful and spoke much better English than my Spanish. Worth a return visit!

“Great Pizza at a very nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

Oven baked Pizzas, very good espresso coffee. Great stop for lunch on the way back from the Arenal reserves and other attractions. Note that our waiter spoke very little English and it was difficult to communicate with him, so be patient, it is worth it!
