I visited Cabuya in June and Cafe Coyote is lovely. The food is delicious, and the family is very friendly. If you have any questions about Cabuya or even the Nicoya peninsula come here. They will try to help you with just about anything. They do car rentals, and if you need fishing rods, surf boards, boogie boards, bikes, you name it they will find it for you. The husband also runs a shuttle bus service throughout most of Costa Rica so it's very convenient. I think they offer tours too! And have some accommodations available as the owner manages properties as well.

The open air environment is refreshing and offers both space for large groups and areas for more intimate dining. The food is fresh, meals are prepared as orderred , with high quality products, are delicious and the presentation is lovely. The owners, Jenny and Pollo are two of the nicest human beings that I have ever met. They, as well as their college age children , speak English as well as Spanish. They have indepth knowledge of the area and can help you to arrange just about anything at very fair / competitive prices through the network they spend time and effort maintaining. I suggest you try it. I will definitely return.

We spent two months in Cabuya, January and February 2014. Jenny, the owner of Café Coyote, is amazing. She is so very friendly, is an amazing cook and she constantly wanted to help us to make our stay perfect. My three kids, husband and I always loved whatever she prepared - smoothies, desserts, pizza, fish, salad... ooh the salad dressing. Jenny even gave me the recipe. Jenny also regularly ordered our fruits and veggies from the truck which was much cheaper than what we would have paid. In addition, Jenny offers excursions and was able to get the best price. If in Cabuya, drop by for a meal. You'll be glad you had such delicious food and happy you met such a kind and vibrant person.

We have been vacationing in Cabuya for the past 4 years and Jenny's Cafe Coyote has always been a favorite. We have tasted almost all of her offerings but we always come back for her pizza and a bottle of Chilean red wine. To be honest, it's the only place in Cabuya that offers pizza but as original New Yorkers we appreciate good pizza and Cafe Coyote serves it. The restaurant is tucked back away from the road and it's open air but if you choose to sit out under the tree it's a unique atmosphere. One evening we saw an armadillo run past our table!

The other thing that makes Cafe Coyote special is Jenny. She has a warm, welcoming personality and speaks very good English. She also provides on the spot Spanish lessons.

Their menu is simple and the food is delicious! We had pizza here twice - excellent! You can't go wrong with their pizza menu here.

Ordered a fish with lemon and garlic entree and shared between the two of us. Comes with Salad, tortillas and beans - be hungry if you order your own entree.

Cozy atmosphere and handy to have wi-fi.
