“Don't believe the sign!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We stopped by for lunch and noticed a GIANT sign that read 2x1 pizza Hoy - All Day. We would have been quite content with the one pie, but the server almost insisted that we take two. Since we we're staying near by we went for it . The pizza was OK, definitely not great. The mango Batida was good. When the bill came we we're very surprised to see that the 6,500 pizza was now 9,000 AND they added the service charge of 10% We attempted to sort it out, they suddenly could no longer comprehend my (fair) Spanish or any English and we really felt like we got ripped off. I would never return.
If you do go just order straight from the menu and be prepared for the service to be included, whether you want to pay it or not, grrr!

“RIP OFF”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

This is a bait an switch joint. They have a sign out front that says "2x1 pizza" all day. 6500 Colones for a medium pizza becomes 9000 after purchase. It is a lie. After asking about it, they spoke no more English.
Just awful. Don't go here. $32.00 for a small pizza and 4 beers.

“Awesome place with a Tropical vibe”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

This place is one of the top in Carrillo Beach, it has great food and great drinks, the atmosphere is Tropical and you can walk from almost everywhere in town. The Nachos are wonderful and the burger is delicious! The owners Flavio and Fernando are very friendly and they always greet you with a warm welcome!
