Two of us were walking through town and with the rain starting to get heavy, we headed in here for dinner. We were glad we did. We both had pizza and it was first class. Really happy we stopped in Parrillero for dinner and we...had a great chat with (presumably) the owner as we left. Highly recommended!More

OMG, this place had the pizza I've been searching for! More than 50 years ago we found the best pizza in Richmond, VA. It was thin crusted, tomatoey, and with just the right amount of cheese and spicy deliciousness. Over 30 years ago, when we...went back, the old man had died and taken his recipe with him. The family that runs the lovely Restaurante Parrillero have found it!More

My friend and I went here on our first night in Costa Rica and it was delicious. As it was the off-season, the restaurant was very quiet. The staff were all great and we really enjoyed our time there. The decor and setting is really...nice too. We ordered a margherita pizza. Side note: the little rolls they brought out as an appetizer were AMAZING!!More

Between us, we ordered the Pork Ribs and the Pepperoni Pizza. The pork ribs were cooked to perfection, juicy and flavorful, and served with an excellent barbecue sauce and superior mixed vegetables. The pizza was hands down the best of several we've had in Monteverde:...great crust, beautifully balanced cheese and sauce, and a generous supply of high quality pepperoni. The service was also excellent, friendly, professional, and prompt. Already looking forward to exploring their menu further next time.More

This place is a hidden gem. The food is delicious they have a great menu option from vegan to wood fire pizza, pasta and on the grill. My husband had a tomahawk and I got a delicious sea bass, besides of the fact that the...food has great flavor it is not overdue in seasoning and it’s light to enjoy. We obviously had local craft beers that were refreshing and perfect to have with our meals, we recommend the coyotico and jauria, both are refreshing and smooth to drink. And finally we had their house made cheese cake with a passion fruit sauce paired with an espresso and it was soooo good. I highly suggest to try it because it is not super sweet like other cheesecakes out there. If you are in the area pay them a visit besides of their food being delicious, they have great reasonable prices, the decor is so cute and their service is exceptional. Thank you Yesenia for your attention and great humor :)More

The place has this great atmosphere! They had a live show for this local singer and that was a great experience. The food was cooked precisely and was just tasty. The staff was great and most b&b have a coupon for free drinks/desserts. One of...the best places on our trip.More

The restaurant had to jump through a few hoops to accommodate my food allergies and dietary restrictions, but they did it brilliantly and graciously. Then to top it off, the food was delicious! And don’t even get me started on the margarita … mmmmm. I...mean it was so good I went back for lunch the next day and had the same thing (fish in garlic).

Nice spot with friendly service, but $25 for a small pizza and a water is a bit expensive. I’d spend my money somewhere else in town. Pizza was good though :)

Stayed in Monteverde for about 3 weeks total and found myself continually coming back to this restaurant. Best pizza in Costa Rica with excellent staff and service. Highly recommend trying it, and especially the pizza Josue.

We only stayed locally in the area for two days but we ate here twice, and then got two pizzas for the drive to Manuel Antonio. By far the best pizza we ate in Costa Rica. 10/10 recommend; Pizza Caribena, Pizza con Camarones were absolutely...fantastic. Prices were reasonable and staff very friendly.More

Came here for dinner based on the recommendation of our fabulous VRBO hosts in La Fortuna, Ceibo Arenal Home (amazing experience!) and food was delicious. My husband had a steak that was cooked beautifully and I had the Garlic Tilapia, which was amazing as were...the vegetables that accompanied. Kids loved their Hawaiian and Pepperoni Pizzas and the Brownie and Ice Cream for dessert. Will definitely return on our next trip to Monteverde.More
