We had a great margherita pizza, cooked on a grill, making the thin crust slightly crunchy and with a little nice smokey flavour. Quaint family spot, a little rough around the edges, but with lots of personality. I recommend stopping by. I hope to go...More

On the advice of a local, went to this well-hidden gem right next to the Super Cocles supermarket. (It is on the Puerto Viejo side of the supermarket, versus the Manzillo side.) I needed to pick up some take-out pizza, and the restaurant made us...More

The staff was nice, and the atmosphere is fine, but we were underwhelmed with the food. The pizza, and specifically the crust missed the mark for us. We had some fantastic pizza in the area but it didn't happen for us here.

This is a cool little place that has an off-the-beaten-path feel. Our family was tired and had a late lunch, so the Pizza was perfect. I'd love to try some of their Argentinian influenced dishes next time, but it was a lovely place to sit...More

We went for dinner a couple of nights ago, DEC/30th. The place is a quaint Caribbean beach house in the middle of a well manicured lawn, it's really something! The beach is not necessarily the kind of place you associate with beef (it's more of...More

Can't understand how others could have raved about this place. My steak and my husband's ribs were both rather tough, and my steak was a bit overcooked too. Unfortunately, I let the waiter convince me to order the Argentinian grilled steak instead of the tenderloin...More

Wow what a fantastic place. We stumbled across this hidden restaurant by pure chance and so pleased we did. The food was fantastic and possibly the best we tasted our trip to Costa Rica and is definitely worth a visit!

Very hidden, small and simple restaurant serving fine Argentinean specialties. Kind and attentive service. The guest is still a king. The food was so excellent, that returned once more before leaving Pueto Viejo. Mägi + Rolf

this is the type of home restaurant that created puerto viejo. Not popular, not over the top but created with love and food from home. This Argentinian Grill joint is perfect. The pizza is charcoal cooked and the food is great. Seat besides the grill...More
