Amazing pizza. Great family run restaurant. Great service. Our waiter made some great recommendations. We didn't realize it was cash only but the host/son said if it's a problem just pay us tomorrow

This family run restaurant is very funky looking but you will not be disappointed with either the food or service. The pizza was amazing and the wine was surprisingly good. The family works hard in there and their efforts show. We are only here 3 nights and I hope we get to go back tonight before we leave.

The pizza is amazing - try the vegetarian one with goat cheese, I forgot the name... it takes a while to prepare but it's worth the waiting. Especially the garlic sauce will make this an unforgettable pizza experience!

It took over two hours for 2 small pizzas to come out and they tasted average. The place was pretty much empty so the long wait didn't make sense. Sangrias tasted pretty good if you like cinnamon in your wine. Overall, not worth the wait and over priced.

My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights the beginning of November. We stayed Monday and Tuesday night and were at the hostel with one other person as it was still slow season and midweek.

This is a different experience for sure, I have been to Playa Negra twice and always come here more than once, the owners are great and full of energy. The food is great, pricey but really good. If you are in the area don't miss this if not only for the pizza but for the great company.

Pizza was ok. Sangria was good, worth trying but not rave worthy. Bill was pricey. Owner was rude. Would recommend other places in town over kon tiki.

Kon-tiki was recommended to us by our yoga instructor. we have a large group of 9 including 4 young kids so finding a place that accommodates that comfortably can be challenging. the atmosphere was excellent and Jeronimo & His sister are so friendly, they made us feel like family. the pizza was unreal and we kept ordering more just so...
