The handpainted walls and friendly staff are just the opening benefits of Moya's. We've had several delicious meals here: pizza, mushroom ravioli, Mountain Salad, and fish!

I eat here regularly when in town. The food is fresh and well prepared and the portions are generous. You just can't get tuna this fresh in the States. Very friendly staff and local regulars every night.

The servings are huge, the burgers hard to finish, the desserts original, and the pizza the best. Friendly staff and owner make a weekly visit necessary!
