The beet salad and pizza were really good. The restaurant has large glass windows that open to the outside. It has a really great view of the volcano and we were fortunate enough to get a glimpse of the top while having lunch.More

We visited Arenal and went to Que Rico / Tabbuleh twice in two days, because the food and service were THAT good! In particular, our favorites: Turkish pizza, spaghetti Bolognese, kibbeh, and the chicken shawarma. Extra special service from Edgar made our stay delightful!More

Had the opportunity to stay and eat here with my partner and we had an amazing experience. Hernan and his staff are incredibly hospitable and engaging. They also made one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had - and I’m incredibly picky when it comes...to dough and crust. Will recommend over and over.More

Our hotel recommended Que Rico. The restaurant picked us up (free pickup and return). My wife had the pizza - said it was delicious. I had the rice with shrimp - volcano shape. We shared the focaccia caprese salad on bread - it was superb....Our friends had the salmon and a sphagetti dish. We all enjoyed our meals, service was very good and we enjoyed the atmosphere of this very nice Italian restaurantMore
