We stopped in here based on the recommendation by our surfing instructor. The atmosphere is very charming and quaint! We ordered roasted potatoes with aioli sauce and a half cheese/half carne pizza which was delicious! The service was friendly and attentive. A chilled limon liquour was accompanied with the check which was a special treat.

Our friend mentioned a small appetizer that is brought to the table prior to ordered by we didn't receive. He just said it was delicious and maybe cheese?

We arrived at our house in Playa Grande mid afternoon after a day of flying and we're definitely hungry for some good food. This was out first time to Costa Rica and the area. We saw the reviews and decided to give El Huerto a try. Very glad we did. With a group of 7 varying in ages from grandparents to toddlers everyone loved the good. The pizzas are amazing. Handmade crust and true wood fired oven have a great flavor. We did a pepperoni, Hawaiian, and Diabolo. I had the seafood Paella. Everything was really good. So much that we called and ordered pizza to bring back to the house on our last night packing to leave.

We shared a huge salad and had a pizza (with half/half toppings - the Diablo is spicy, Mexicana perfectly yummy) and it was way more than enough for the two of us. Great food and service. Smell of the wood fired oven just added to the atmosphere.

We ate at El Huerto on the recommendation of locals in Playa Grande. The wood fired pizza has a thin crust and unique toppings. It was a great setting, good service, and delicious food. Just remember, the speed of service in Playa Grande is very much slower than in the US. We learned to really enjoy the time together as a family as we slowed down.

Our group of families ate here twice in early April. Both times we had cocktails at the bar and took the amazing thin crust pizza "para llevar" or to go. Oscar made us some fresh, high quality killer margs. We also bought a decent italian red to pair with dinner. The "roasted piglet" to go was a fun option. It was a bit fatty for my taste, but had good flavor.
