We went there for lunch and tried the wood-oven pizza, which was great, so we went back for dinner! We had the grilled meat platter which we also enjoyed. There was also a musician performing live (behind plexiglass) and restaurant guests were welcome to take...the stage and sing if they wanted to.More

Take the headline with a grain of salt. When I say best in the area it's just that, best in area. Not meaning the best steaks you could ever get. For fries I take my own ketchup along because I don't like ketchup with sugar...like they serve most places here. The side dishes aren't that great. I can't figure out why you wouldn't have the best sides but I guess different strokes for different folks.More

A local community place to stop in for a pizza, steak or just a beer and some friendship this small pizza place has a larger wood oven and turns out the thinnest, crispiest pizza around. The full menu includes lots of topping for your pie,...great steaks (and that is hard to find in Costa Rica) and a full bar. Right off the Pan American highway just as you are heading into San Isidro de General, it's an easy place to get into and out of as well. The staff are helpful and even though the don't speak a lot of American, the smiles make the communication just fineMore

Nice place in st rafael, san isidro. The waitress is really nice, the parillada is really tasty and the place is clean, nice and friendly. They serve also pizza, which is quite good! One remark: the prices are quite high..

I went there with a couple of friends, the first impression was the PERFECT customer service received by a lovely sweet young lady. We ordered a pizza, and it was extremely good, tasty..it was just perfect! The coffee was just regular, Im sure they can...improve the coffee quality. We experienced an incident with a sweet corn that we ordered, we found a hair in it. However, it could happen at any place, the difference is how the place react and resolve it. In this case, they apologized inmediately and offered to change it or order another thing. We really enjoyed the service, the food, and we were happy in the way that they resolved the incident. Place with nice music, very calm environment, they have a front yard as a parking lot, wifi, clean bathrooms.More
