“A Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Montezuma and Malpais are certainly well stocked with pizzerias and Italian restaurants, but Tierra y Fuego is new and very different from most. Tucked away in the hills above Montezuma, this place has a beautiful ambience away from the downtown noise and hustle. No tin roof and plastic chairs here - this restaurant was handcrafted from beautiful tropical hardwoods, has a genuine brick forno oven, and is spotless clean. The owners and staff are warm and friendly, and Sundays are like a big Italian family feast and get-together. The pizzas and pastas were all excellent . If you go there on a Sunday, go early - they start the rotisserie chickens around 2 pm and keep them coming until the last one is polished off. This is a great place for a romantic dinner for two, or a party of 8 - 10. A great addition to Montezuma's restaurant scene.

“To the ends of the earth- order 1 of everything!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012 via mobile

The roads make it an adventure to to get to- but its part of the experience. We got the foccacia, roast chicken, pizza and ribeye and all were delicious. We would definitely go back-only open fri- sun. Come early on Sun for the roast chicken-it runs out fast.

“Best pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

This place is a little further out of the way but well worth the drive the atmosphere was great and the pizza I would say, probably the best I have eaten outside of Italy

“A remote but beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

Good pizza in a rustic but beautiful setting. Worth the ride across wretched roads from Montezuma or Mal Pais.

“Worth a trek up the hill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

The place is owned by very friendly italians and they really make your experience grand. Not only is the food wonderful (get pizza, it's really worth it, but had 4 dishes that were all excellent), but the setting is beautiful, outdoors and away from the beach. The $5 cab ride is totally worth it and it is the 2nd or 3rd best place in or around MOntezuma (Cocolores and Playa de los Artides the others). Oh, and it is a better deal, too.
