“Charming Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

This restaurant was charming and the pizza hit the spot. Menu had other options as well, so if you are not looking for pizza, I would still definitely recommend it!

“Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

We ate here for lunch one afternoon and our food was so good! I ordered the Happy Burrito, which was one of the best burritos I've ever had. My husband had a chicken wrap, which he said was delicious. And best of all, my very picky daughter (who'd had a hard time finding food she liked during our Costa Rica vacation) LOVED the calzone she ordered. The calzone was huge and fed her for two meals. The restaurant itself is very cute, nicely decorated. We thought the prices were a little high, especially when compared to Tinajas restaurant, which we had eaten at the night before. Also, the location on a busy street isn't the most scenic. But most importantly, the food was delicious!

Well, what to say, just check it out yourselves. The wraps are absolutely superb and come with a lovely salad. Good service and nice atmosphere. Highly recommended.

“"Wonderful food, and nicely priced."”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

My wife had the pesto pizza, yummy. I had the drunken chicken wrap and it was exceptional. We met Bob and Betty, who had moved from Vancouver to Nuevo Arenal, and they were loaded with information. They loved their new home, and I can see why. Highly recommend Moya's.

“Great food and service, authentic and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Moya's Place is one of the top restaurants in Nuevo Arenal, and makes the best pizza in the area. Their other dishes are well prepared, and have a very fair price as well. The staff is friendly, and the decor is VERY cool. Highly recommended!
