“Hidden Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

At the edge of a small village, most people would drive by this place without giving it a second glance. The only reason we ended up going there was due to Tripadvisor's restaurant rating system.
It is a very simple place, and an extensive pizza/pasta menu. Run by an Italian family for years, these folks really know how to make a pizza!
We ordered two different types (vegetarian and pepperoni), and they were honestly the best thin crust pizzas we have had in recent memory. We were shocked, and dug in like we'd never had pizza in our lives before.
Great place for a pizza with the family...if you are looking for romantic atmosphere, I'd go elsewhere .
Put this on on your list.

“Best pasta in the world Basta !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

In november 2012 I had diner in Restaurant La Caveja. I ordered the pasta Alfredo and it was sublime. I've been around ( all over Europe : Italy, Belgium,France, US, Africa,etc..)
but this was truly perfect. I wish I found this jewel earlier because the next day we had to continue our journey. If you're in the neighborhood don't miss on this opportunity.

“Good Service, Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Nice place on the beach to have a lunch. The food was good and reasonable price. The only complaint was the ants in the sand. I would sit at the tables on the concrete instead.

“Great Pizza in Playas del Coco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I have been coming to Coco for 10 years now, living here for over a year and have been wanting to try this restaurant. The reviews are all correct. Great place! Terrific thin crust pizza! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good service. We were eating early, 6pm, but within an hour the placed quickly filled with what appeared to be loyal and local customers. The prices seemed fair compared to other pizza places on the main street in Coco. This is worth the very short drive,(1.5 km) or taxi. Better than any place in town.

Aside from the great service, super hospitality, fabulous food and drinks - I'm not sure what else I can say. Just go see for yourself.
