We ate a late lunch at Johnny's, which is a short five minute walk from the El Establo hotel. There was only one other table occupied when we arrived (about 2pm). The waiter was very polite and efficient. We ordered a Monteverde pizza, which was outstanding (The sauce was great). They also bring you garlic bread for an appetizer while we waited for our food. The prices were reasonable. If we had spent more time in the area, I would definitely have gone back to eat there again. If you walk up to the main entrance and it looks like it is closed, walk around the down hill side to the side entrance. I think the upstairs is more of a formal dining area open only in the evening.

We didn't expect much from a pizza place in Costa Rica, but this was good.

We had lunch here and thought everything was good. The Cold Coffee drink was fantastic!

We sat at the bar - had local cheese from the dairy farm on the charcurcrie plate, caprese was excellent local ingredients, pizza was better than expected.

A cozy, fun Italian restaurant with a wood-fired brick oven in the corner. The pizzas were delicious and they have a good variety. The pastas were very good, too, nice sauces. A little pricey, but large portions and everything was excellent quality. The kids loved that the drinks came with lovely flowers in them and the straw wrappers were all folded up in designs.

Johnny's Monteverde Cloud Forest Pizzeria sounds like a pizza place but is far from it. They served the best steaks, lamb and artisan-prepared dishes we had while in Costa Rica. The service was spectacular, the food was "4-Star" and we ate there each night while in Monteverde. Ask your waiter about Johnny's Story. Fascinating.
