One night it was absolutely pouring down so we ordered delivery from El Wagon. Their menu is online so we called up and placed our order. Arrived hot and quickly. Cannot speak to the restaurant's atmosphere, but food and service was great!

I ate here while staying at Hotel Costa Verde. The pizza and drinks were great. It was nice to eat lunch while watching the squirrel monkeys playing in the trees.

Great lunch place, really enjoyed their Special Wagon burger with pulled pork, beef patty, jalapeños poppers and grilled pineapple - awesome burger! Service was attentive and helpful!

The pizza was a nice change from the Costa Rican traditional food we'd been eating through the week. The restaurant is set in the trees, lots of monkey sightings here! Our server was fabulous. A perfect experience, highly recommend!

Our group of 11 stopped by for Dinner on a Friday evening. In spite of the day of the week/time of day they were able to accommodate us at a single table without a problem. Clean facility, great décor, nice ambiance. Drinks were good and...served reasonably promptly. We ordered multiple pizzas of multiple types for our group to share. All were OK, but in spite of a great variety of toppings, they all were very similar in taste. Why: because all were the same sauce & cheese and there were not enough toppings on any of them to make them distinctive. Our conclusion: this place worked for us because it was in walking distance from our villa but next trip to Manuel Antonio we will look for an alternative location for our Pizza fix. Sidenote: you must be tech savy to select your food: have to use the free WiFi and a QR code on the table to get to a menu on your phone (we didn’t ask if they had hardcopy menu—maybe they do?)More

Dined several times while staying at the Costa verde. I enjoyed the cheeseburger with added fries. I enjoyed it so much I had it 3 times! Chicken nachos were also delicious. Did not try the pizza. Service was good and attentive. Waitstaff was friendly. You...can dine under cover or in the open. Recommend you pay the Wagon a visit.More

Excellent pizza, we normally struggle finding vegetarian options but the pizza was a great vegetarian option, we ended up ordering 2 pizzas and they were super willing to modify some ingredients…great service!

We had dinner here twice. The setting is attractive, with the jungle open to the restaurant along one side. The pizza options are numerous - we had the Mediterranean Pizza both evenings and it was very good. A perfect thin crust and fresh and abundant...toppings. The service was attentive and servers were welcoming and friendly. On our second visit, we had a nice bonus - in a tree right in front of the restaurant was a sloth, having a dinner of almond leaves while we watched. We had other sloth sightings while in Costa Rica but this was the best.More

Our kids were looking for pizza and while we had our reservations we tried El Wagon based on a concierge’s recommendation. While the atmosphere was nice, service was slow (despite the place being half empty) and inattentive. Add to that the fact that the food,...including but not limited to the pizza, was just “eh”, I’d recommend looking elsewhere.More

We stopped here for lunch after a day at the beach. It was about 1/2 way back to our Airbnb so a perfect pit stop on the uphill climb home. The service was excellent and the outdoor space in the trees was serene. We ordered...the margarita pizza and the Mediterranean pizza - perfect thin crust, nice and crispy from the wood burning oven. Both were excellent and big enough to bring some home for later. The free Wi-Fi allowed us to check into the real world and post some pictures from the beach.More

We were winding down after a day of animal watching in Quepos, and wanting a quick, casual meal. We walked into El Wagon, and we were not disappointed - we ordered the Capricciossa, and a couple of cold Imperials. The pizza arrived very quickly, and...was hot, cheesy, and really hit spot. We were done with our pizza (full, with no leftovers) and on our way back to our hotel in under an hour. Atmosphere was good, cervezas wer cold, mission accomplished!More

We came here wanting to sit near the view which they didn’t let us do, even though there were non-reserved tables available. So it was a rocky start. But then we tried their pizza and salads (both vegetarian!) and it was all great. They have...beers as well so we can’t complain too much. Thin crust, nice sized pizza as well as their salad. Overall a pretty pleasant experience.More

El Wagon delivered to my room at Coste Verde during the green season in October 2019. I doubt they could do that during high seasons though. Great food :-)
