You may think that's impossible to miss a pizza but believe me, I stumbled upon an awful lot during my travels or simply when moving from one town to another For me the best pizzas remain the ones of a small pizzeria in Naples (check my reviews to find it). But I have to admit that the pizzas from El... More

Welcomed by friendly staff. Promptly brought our drink order and took our food order. We were grateful to have placed our order before a large group. Approx. 20 minutes later, my dish arrived at our table. My husband's pizza did not. We waited patiently, but after another 5 minutes, my husband insisted that I start eating my meal. While waiting...

Wood burning stove. Thin crust but large pizza. I'm sure it is a very cool place to be in the evening but we were there just after it opened at 2pm so we were first customers. Excellent sangria washed down octopus and pizzas. Loved it.

We came here twice. First we were invited. Second, we liked and alla other places in the area were almost closed. Friendly staff and an "almost like in Italy" pizza are two big ups for this place. Location is perfect if you are in playa grande, and though close to the street, you can enjoy the garden and fresh air.

We ate at El Huerto 4 times while staying in Playa Grande. The fish was good to excellent. The pizza was tasty. The seasoning was done well. My wife was delighted with the Tanqueray Gin and Tonics. The service was also good. The prices were reasonable for good quality food.

Probably the best pizza I have ever tried!!! The staff were friendly and attentive and the cocktails were great! I drank a Pina Colada.... and had a pizza with buffalo mozzarella and sundried tomatoes and fresh basil. I cant remember the name but it was a meal i wont forget. Beautiful outdoor dining and cool lights!! Good prices too!!

Visited this restaurant i february 2 times during our 3 night stay in Playa Grande. The restaurant lies just outside the center of Playa Grande. They have fantastic good pizza, we ate the seafood pizza which was delicious. The other night we ate Cesar Salad and Pork ribs and this were too very good. It's a little bit pricey but... More

Ordered 4 pizzas and 2 salads takeaway during superbowl afternoon. 90 USD seemed very expensive. Both salads were the wrong orders, and we were charged service charges also on takeout food. All in all disappointing for a place that used to be decent - but hey; if you enjoy run-of-the-mill 20 dollar pizzas then the seating area is reasonably cozy.... More

We have eaten here in previous years and found the food and service to be excellent. Tonight was a very diffferent experience. The available menu is different from what is on their website. I had the snapper in shrimp sauce. The snapper was so overcooked it was unetible. The menu said it came with mashed potatoes and asparagus - I... More
