“Tremendous Pizza!!!!!”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

The pizza is tremendous!! The ingredients are very fresh and delicious. The place was very easy to find, it's just off the main road, you can't miss it.
The restaurant was very clean and so were the restrooms. The service was a little slow but the staff is very kind and courteous. It's not so slow that it's frustrating, but you definitely don't go there if you are in a rush.
The front of the restaurant is open, so you get fresh air. I don't recommend sitting outdoor, the space is a little small and the restaurant does sit just off the main road so you could get noise. Keep in mind that even though it's a main road, Nuevo Arenal is fairly remote so you're not likely to get heavy traffic.We went for dinner, like around 8pm and it was very quiet and the fresh air from the outside was delightful.
The whole experience was very pleasurable and the food was outstanding, I highly recommend it.

“Good pizza in good location”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Good food; location was easy to find, just off the main road into Nuevo Arenal. The night we ate there, service was slow in spite of not being very busy. I would avoid sitting outside or near the road. A truck stopped just across the street and idled with the exhaust fumes spoiling an otherwise enjoyable meal. I would encourage getting a table as far away from the street as possible.

“Best Place in Arenal To Eat”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

I have eaten here several times for lunch and dinner and have not been disappointed. I've had their pizza, chicken, and hamburgers. The trouble you will have is plate envy, even though the meal I ordered was great the meal he/she ordered and I got to sample was even better. Also be patient as every order is made when ordered. We rushed one meal and the chicken could have been cooked longer. So go when you have plenty of time. In fact, Costa Rica is a place to relax and I learned not to be in a hurry anywhere.

“Good place to eat in Nuevo Arenal”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

I unexpectedly ended up having to stay in Nuevo Arenal for a couple of nights, and this restaurant was right in front of the room I was staying at. It has a cute funky interior and had latin music playing. I had the Hawaiian pizza one night, which was really good, and the jalapeño quesadillas the next (which were also good). They also make nice mixed drinks w/ starfruit slices on them, which is cute. The waitress I had both times was super friendly.
