We visited this restaurant 4yrs ago on a researching tour of Costa Rica. We were on an adventure in the area & had to stop in again. Great pizza & roasted chicken. Very nice & we will return when we are in the area again.

We came here for a dinner recommend by our hotel TikiVillas. It is rustic and friendly, quite a few locals. We had the pizza and it was ok, the service a bit slow but the prices for the area were OK.
