My husband and I had a glass of merlot and Chardonnay which was very good. We ordered the ceviche appetizer and the tipica medium pizza. Excellent. We sat by the opened glass walls at the front of the restaurant. We had a good view of the volcano. Amazing service. I wish we were staying longer.

We were greeted at the door with a friendly smile and welcome. The food (for Costa Rica) was excellent. Good Italian food. We had a wood fired pizza and it came with thin crust just the way we like it.

We also had a complete dinner her with our tour group that was delicious also. We also enjoyed watching... More

The Bacio Perugina was the best dessert I've EVER eaten! We came here based on the dessert & pizza recommendations (from several locals in different locales), and this restaurant did not disappoint. We dined here twice during our several day visit in the area; it's a convenient spot to dine if staying at the Arenal Observatory Lodge. Prices were reasonable,... More

The receptionist at our hotel recommended Que Rico for lunch, and we loved it so much we came back for Valentine's dinner. Our server, Alberto, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and gave us some good advice for our travels as well. We even came back for dinner the following evening and made sure he was the one... More

My husband and I had dinner here. The steak I ordered (don't remember what cut) was thick, juicy, tender and delicious! It was huge, and we had enough for lunch the next day. My husband ordered a burger, which was very good as well. The restaurant was pretty empty when we were there, and the staff was very attentive. I... More

Our party had a little bit of everything at this restaurant, from pizza, to steak, to seafood, and pasta and even dessert. All the food was very good and the price seemed fair for a more upscale restaurant.
