While the wife and I were sitting in our room waiting out the rain to go find some dinner, we came to the conclusion that the rain had won the night. We went to the front desk of our hotel and asked if anyone delivered, and they immediately suggested El Wagon. We ordered a pizza and within 15 minutes or... More

Our family (my husband, 2 kids - ages 3 & 5, and I) stayed in a house in Quepos for 2 weeks and loved it! We ate at El Wagon 2 different times and each time the monkeys didn't disappoint. We could hear the monkeys on the roof and then they would slowly start to pop their heads down to... More

We arrived when the restaurant wasn't terribly busy and there were empty tables, but we waited a looooong time to be seated. We also waited for someone to bring menus and take our drink order, so long, in fact, that we were just about to leave and go elsewhere. Once our order was taken, the service was just ok, not...

Big tables with huge chairs surround an open plan restaurant with an old railway wagon at the centre (some tables inside the wagon) Good choice of pizza and they tasted good. Quite large and we didn't all get through each pizza....so bring your appetite. Wine wasn't great - beers and cocktails were fine.

Pizza was comparable to New York City/New Jersey. You could do half and half for the toppings. Had a couple of milkshakes between us. Value for money on the food, Good customer service. The manager was patient explaining the bill. Pizza was really good.

I spend at least 12 weeks a year in Quepos and have learned a lot about where to go and what to avoid. I rarely give an "Excellent" rating on anything but this place is worth it. Some of the best (Maybe the best) pizza I have ever had. Wonderful dining area. Great view of the rain forest. No bugs.... More

We stayed at the Costa Verde for a week in AugustWe stayed at the Costa Verde for a week in August. Out “go to” quick and casual place for dinner was El wagon. Clean, deep menu, nice atmosphere, great service and good food made this the right choice for us. The selection of wraps and pizza topping made for tough... More

This restaurant has delicious wood-fired pizza, dark brew beer, and perfectly seasoned french fries. It is not Costa Rican cuisine in any way shape or form, but this did not stop us from eating here multiple times during our stay. The shrimp and cream cheese pizza was out of this word, although it may appear a bit interesting when reading... More

Ate there twice choosing different pizzas. Both the pizza and the service was very good. Had hoped to see wildlife others mentioned, but was not lucky.
