Best Place in Town
This restaurant has the best wood fired pizza and pasta around. Super friendly staff and just a great environment. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we went back the next night for another delicious dinner. Would highly recommend :-)

Café Mediterraneo is a little off the main drag, but worth the short drive from town. We were searching for a pizza place, and when we saw the pictures of the pizza online, we knew it was the place we had to go. We were not disappointed. The pizza was excellent, made in a real, wood fired pizza oven. Alexander was our waiter and he did an excellent job taking care of us.

our son insisted on finding a pizza place and we ended up coming here. the waiter and the owner was very friendly and in between conversations, it so happened that my son ended up helping them with our pizza. this is a kid friendly place and I can only wish that what a happy place this will be once the current pandemic situation has subsided. the place is all made with superior wood and feels stately and rich.
the food here is out of the world and matches if not surpasses most italian american restaurants serving similar food. we had pizza the first night and pastas the second night.

The restaurant is a bit out of the down-town area, but totally worth it!! The ambiance is warm and welcoming. There are tables outside and inside. We ordered caprese salad, pizza (from wood-fire oven!), and homemade spinach pasta with pesto sauce. The food was INCREDIBLE and the service was fantastic. We had a wonderful time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Off the beaten path, across from a field of cows. But, it was amazing! Tomato soup, a glass of wine, and the best oven-fired pizza I’ve ever had! The service was excellent (I believe he was the owner), and it was a quiet respite with delicious food. I’ll return every time
I’m in Costa Rica.
