“Popular place with Ticos & tourists alike!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

Ritmo Tropical always seems to be busy with locals and tourists alike, everyone enjoying the reliably good pizza. The wait staff is friendly, and the restaurant, although located on a dusty road, is remarkably clean.

“PIZZA!!! and drinks!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

One of my favorite places to eat in Mal Pais! Great pizza and mojitos :) Nice family owned business. In high season it gets busy, so go early or expect a little wait.

“I could go without”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My boyfriend and I were staying at the place down the street and wanting to grab a late dinner. Our hotel had recommended it and thought we would give it a chance. I would have rather gone hungry. Let me just say the service is terrible. I've worked as a server before and now I work for a hotel in the states as a catering manager and I have seen some terrible service, but this was the worst. I understand that locals are never in a hurry and are super laid back, however it shouldn't take an hour and a half to get dinner, especially when the restaurant isn't very busy. By the time I got dinner, I wasn't even hungry. Our waitress never came and asked us how our meal was or if we needed anything. I literally had a few bites and was completely full. Their portions are huge; one portion could feed 2-3 people. I had to physically go ask for the bill, while our waitress was no where to be found. She eventually came back to clear our full plates and asked if we liked our food. I responded politely, "by the time it got here, I really wasn't even hungry." She just walked away without saying anything. If you don't mind waiting 2 hours for your food with terrible service, this is the place for you.

“Friendly and nice”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The place was really full, but we didn't wait a long.
The food was nothing special but pretty good, pizza and salads yummy!
The location is reserved and not in the street.
Good parking
