“Friendly owner, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

We enjoyed our experience and food at Pitos! It is definitely off the beaten road in the middle of no where. We were truthfully his only customers of the night - but he treated us right and the food/ drinks/ atmosphere was fantastic. Highly recommended! My husband had the heart of palm dish and i had the mahi mahi - both were great!

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

We had to make a stop in Parrita; It's was not planned so we had a look in trip advisor to find a good typical restaurant. Pitos Que Comemos had such a good rating that we decided to go there.

The place is not easy to find so we were the only tourists. The chief is really nice and the food is really good.
The ceviche was awesome and we ordered also the shrimps cooked with white wine. It was good too.
There was really good music playing in the restaurant. Nothing bad to say.

It's definitively a place to go if you have to spend some time around Parritas.

“Pitos-simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I are in love with Pito, his restaurant and, of course, his food! We visited several times during our stay in Costa Rica, both for lunch and dinner. We were lucky enough to go and have an awesome dinner one night and Pito serenaded us with his karaoke machine, chocked full of great Spanish music.

We developed a great relationship and talked about a great many topics including our pasts, home lifex and children.

His chicken and shrimp dishes are both to die for! We love you and miss you, Pito!

“Such a GREAT surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

This place looks like it is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but boy was it good. Everything from the ambiance of the evening, to the food, to the staff. It was fabulous and plan to go again this year on our annual trip to Parrita.

“Best food in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

We spent three weeks in Costa Rica before eating here. It was hands down the best meal we had the entire trip. We had dorado cooked in a variety of ways including fried, with ginger sauce, with garlic sauce, and with shrimp sauce. All of the sauces were amazing, and the fish was cooked perfectly. The service was also very good. Jose Luis, the chef and host, listened and was engaging and affable. Don't miss this place! It would be a great place to stop on the way to Quepos/Manuel Antonio.
