“Fantastic once again!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

My wife and I visited Tierra y Fuego about 3 years ago on our last trip to CR and have been looking forward to returning ever since. This time we had our children in tow and were there for my wife's birthday dinner. Everything was perfect, just as we had remembered it. Homemade tagliatelle was to die for, pizzas were wonderful and even our somewhat difficult to please teens were blown away. We can't wait to return in a few years!

“Great food and friendly staff”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Great restaurant but it was difficult to find. It took me 3 days. A lot of local people had not heard of it if and if the had did not know where it was. I had Pizza but they did have other dishes. It is Italian so that is what you get. The pizza was great, thin crust and the staff were very friendly and talkative. They speak some English so communication was not a problem. If you can't finish they will put in a box for you.

“Best pizza ever!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Real authentic wood fired oven pizza! Very rustic little restaurant that was quite unexpected in the middle of the rainforest.

“Top-Notch Food, Service & Ambiance!”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

An amazing experience worth the drive up the hill! It's up the hill on the west side of Montezuma.

Had locally-made beer that was crisp, complex and delicious! Pizzas were outstanding with wood-fired crusts. Creative toppings and highly attentive service with an attention to detail that is usually found at locations much more "sophisticated" earned our host and chef-owner a hug and three kisses on the cheek on our way out. Excellent!!

“Incredible Food on a Mountain!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

This food was worth the journey in the dark! Our family of three arrived well into the Saturday night dinner rush without a reservation. We were greeted enthusiastically and a table was provided in less than 5 minutes! A good sign on what was to come. We enjoyed a moderately priced Malbec with our home-made pizza right out of their stone oven, a shrimp pasta with fresh basil and a garden fresh salad. They were kind to split our dishes in the kitchen for us, too! All food was exceptionally prepared, the service was great and the location was a drive but worth it for the food and almost magical atmosphere of the place. Five star kudos to the owners/chefs! The food was so good that we hugged the chefs before departing ! Brilliant!
