We happened upon this restaurant when we first arrived in Monteverde after a long and unnerving drive up the mountain road. We were the only people in the restaurant, but it was about 1:30 p.m. We ended up having a very good lunch. The pizza was OK, but the pasta dishes were the true highlight. Fun drinks are available for... More

This restaurant was fantastic! After looking for a good meal at a decent price we decided to just bite the bullet and spend a bit more for good food. To our surprise this restaurant was both great food, outstanding service, and a better price than we have paid any where in Costa Rica to date. Advertise, advertise, advertise! This restaurant...

After 2 weeks in Costa Rica and mostly eating in cheap Sodas we ended up in Monteverde where you hardly find a "local" restaurant. We chose Dikary a Restaurant and Pizzaria located a bit outside the center. The price was normal for a tourist restaurant: 18 dollars for a meat dish and 8-10 dollars for a pasta/pizza. We had Pizza... More

They played a very nasty game. Prices in the menu are given in USD (excl. service and taxes). When you pay they translate it into Colones using one exchange rate, add service ans taxes and then translate back to USD using another exchange rate. In total, this way they wanted me to pay 5 USD more (on a bill of... More

For $8 you get a very large and tasty homemade pizza. We thought it would be a "personal" size, but definitely large enough for sharing with many fresh toppings. The pasta was also a very generous portion and freshly made. Service was friendly and good. Definitely worth going.

Although the pizza was pretty good, all our entrees were overly salty, so much so that I couldn't eat mine.

Me, my wife and one year old son had dinner here last night. Except for us, there was one other couple having dinner. We ordered pizza and penne. Preparation took relatively long and my wife's dish arrived 15 minutes after mine. We then noticed that they'd brought her the wrong dish. The correct dish arrived 10 minutes later, but contained...

We loved this place so much that we came back again the following day! Both the focaccia and the pizza were absolutely delicious and we haven't found a place that's matched it since! Grace was the perfect host and it was lovely to chat to her whilst we enjoyed our meal. I'd highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, we loved... More

After almost a week of eating the traditional Costa Rican gallo pinto, this place was a refreshing change of pace. The restaurant was practically emptry when we got there so our service was excellent. We ordered 2 pizzas which was more than enough to feed our group of 4 people. It took a while for our food to come out,... More
