I enjoyed my visit to Cafe Viejo Reestaurant and Pizzeria. Service was nice. We where offered a nice Argentinian Malbec and I had a very nice fresh seafood, long pasta. Without asking for it, whe had a complimentary canapé that was appreciated. It´s a good selection in Puerto Viejo if you are looking for a nice italian restaurant.

Cafe Viejo is absolutely amazing! We got to know Maurizio (one of the owners) during our stay. We found Cafe Viejo because we were staying in the Air BnB run by Maurizio just above the restaurant. The Air BnB is AMAZING, 2 br, 2ba in immaculate condition and right in the heart of downtown! We walked downstairs to Cafe Viejo... More

Awesome service and some of the very best and freshest food available in Puerto Viejo, specializing in prime Italian dishes such as pizza, meats and homemade pasta. Cocktails are made with 100% fresh ingredients, and there is an extensive wine list.

Middle of town and good food and attentive service. Moderate priced. No outdoor dining and good for family. In Costa Rica with summer like heat and there was no AC but fans provided comfort.

We were invited to a friends birthday party back on March 22nd at Café Viejo. We got there a little early and sat at the bar to have a few drinks which were very tasty. We were seated with about 35-40 other friends for the birthday dinner. The service was great and our food came out pretty much the way... More

Pizza is delicious as is pasta in general. Fresh ingredients and great flavor! It is a restaurant, not so much of a beach bar/restaurant. Great for families as well.

Puerto Viejo is a busy, noisy place. When you enter the Cafe, it is quiet and peaceful. The service is relaxed and friendly. We had a wonderful pizza which we enjoyed so much we went back a second night. The desserts were good too. After our second meal, the waiter brought us a complimentary aperitif and when we left he...

We called in advance to book at table for 13 (family and friends). We were delighted with the environment and even more with true service and food. The pasta with lobster is specially delicious. Don't miss it!!
