While it's a bit more expensive than other restaurants in town, the pizza here is the best we've had since Europe! And we've been traveling South/Central America for 4 months!
While the stone-oven pizza was amazing, and the tortilla amuse-bouche they gave us too, my fish was a little over-cooked. Just a tad though, and the veggies were delicious. The portions are very generous. We did have a bit of trouble getting a waiter's attention whenever we needed it, but if you're craving outstanding pizza, this is the place to go!

Wood fired oven pizza that melted in your mouth! Service is excellent and the wine choices divine! Close to the beach and set in a tropical paradise made for a wonderful time with friends!! I hear that all the other food choices are just as good but ill just have to go back to see for myself.

Every time we were out with friends in Playa Grande, we ate at the restaurant El Huerto. Tired of plain pizza we wanted something new.We were surprised by the friendly atmosphere and fantastic Asian cuisine. Like we did not eat the food even in California.We recommend to try Costillas BBQ and marisscos sichuan.Two o'clock we were playing billiards and drank a dozen fine cocktails. Me and my girlfriend were delighted.

But sadly was not able to. Tonight they appeared somewhat busy. We waited 5 minutes for someone to greet us. Never happened. Then went to the back bar. Asked if there was a wait (which would have been fine, could have drank at the bar) or table available. A girl in back, very rudely, said "one minute", and then walked away -- and in a very annoyed way. We took our business down the street. We are here a week. Would have loved to try them.... but we will support Bula Bula, Rip Jack and others that we find. :( -- I rated the food high, even though we did not eat. Smelled and looked good at least.
