This is a great local spot! Clean washrooms, very important. Great food with many options to suit everyone. The staff is excellent, very friendly and helpfull. The prices are very low but food quality is very high. Keep up the good work!

We stopped at Pizzeria El Barrigon after a busy day of activities. It was a nice, casual place to grab a bite. We got 2 small pizzas which was more than enough for 2 of us.

Our pizzas' toppings (both meat and vegetables) were very good, but the cheese was tasteless and the pizza was overcooked. Our kids had fish fillets that they enjoyed, and their salads were fresh and crisp. Atmosphere and staff were quite pleasant.

Noisy place at the main road with good food and nice staff. All very entertaining... can watch locals interacting, dogs begging for food street vendors talking to passing-by truck drivers etc. It’s a bit cinema like. Loved it!

Our guide, Carlos, from Costa Rica Green Life Tours brought us here for a delicious lunch! The food was authentic and tasty, and not heavy, so we could continue our adventures! Thanks for the taste of real Costa Rica! PuraVida!

We ordered the pizza with Queso Ahumado. It was good enough and expensive, but I think it was just regular cheese. Our son ordered a hamburger which turned out to be a piece of beef (not ground beef) topped with a slice of ham on...More

Good pizza and excellent service. Unfortunately it sits right off of the highway 6, so the noise can be annoying.
