We were told by locals that this place had the best pizza - they were absolutely correct. Not only was the thin crust pizza excellent, the staff were willing to allow us to add toppings (seafood) not included as options on the menu. Timely, efficient service, fair pricing.

For the price, and for the quality, you really can't beat this place. I think we ate here three times. We had a couple of different pizzas, and the chicken curry salad. Great food, great service, what more could you ask for?

We stopped here for dinner as it was recommended by our B&B host. Service was excellent, seated immediately, friendly. We ordered their tangy potato salad to share as a starter and then we each ordered a wrap--- the salad had great flavors and the wraps were very large--in fact 1/2 of a wrap is probably enough for one person. Each... More

My husband and I have loved coming here for the past 10 years. Prices are totally on part for the area and the pizza is great. Beer run a 1000 colones and the Margarita pizza we got tonight was 5500. Relaxed environment, indoor/outdoor concept, live music sometimes. Great stop in Nuevo Arenal.

Great salads, & Pizza. I recommend the Chicken curry salad, & the Mountain man salad. The pizza has a buttery & crispy thin crust. Really nice place. The Murals are fun. Glad I stopped in.

Their food is very good but the pizzas are exceptional!!! My son drives when I go there to visit so I can't really give you directions. Not sure the name of the town.

Our Airbnb host recommended Moyas Place, and we are so glad he did! We ordered the Garden pizza, which was exceptional. It is served with sides of pesto, Romano and chili sauce. Great meal. Clean, friendly and wifi. Perfect!
