We ate at El Huerto on the recommendation of locals in Playa Grande. The wood fired pizza has a thin crust and unique toppings. It was a great setting, good service, and delicious food. Just remember, the speed of service in Playa Grande is very much slower than in the US. We learned to really enjoy the time together as a family as we slowed down.

Our group of families ate here twice in early April. Both times we had cocktails at the bar and took the amazing thin crust pizza "para llevar" or to go. Oscar made us some fresh, high quality killer margs. We also bought a decent italian red to pair with dinner. The "roasted piglet" to go was a fun option. It was a bit fatty for my taste, but had good flavor.

We ate here twice during our stay in Playa Grande - and not just because it's a small area with a limited number of restaurants around. Both times, we both ordered different pizzas (from the wood-fired oven), and they were some of the best we've ever eaten. In addition, they were very reasonably priced (maybe $11-13 USD each) and were huge, so we had lots of leftovers for lunch/snacking the next day.

The server we had was very helpful and attentive, we just had to be a bit patient as our Spanish and her English were both not great, so communication was a bit more difficult than we found in more touristy areas of the country. The restaurant itself had beautiful wood tables and was very nicely decorated with a relaxing atmosphere for both couples and families.

We didn't eat anything other than pizza, but from neighbouring tables it looked like others who ordered salads and seafood were equally impressed. Would definitely come back here again!!

Friendly outdoor pizzeria with a varied menu. Great food, good service! If you visit Play Grande don't miss this place - definitely worth several visits.

This place only has maybe 8 tables and a bar top. Dining is outside and very jungle-esque. The menu is huge. Lots of variety too. I'm gluten free, but my hubby LOVED the pizza, and he's kind of a pizza snob. They have many salad and seafood options as well. Service was sub-par, but we came right at the dinner rush and there was only one server.
