We ate in five restaurants in the Rio Dulce/Fronteras area and this was the best. The thin-crust pizza was very good and generous. My husband had leftovers for lunch the next day. The hamburger was excellent. The tables and chairs are not that comfortable. The...setting and new dinghy Dock for boaters arriving by water are excellent.More

I visited sundog tonight although pizza was good. I was ripped off price wise. If you go as a tourist make sure you know how much things cost. The guy with the top knot ripped me off tonight

These guys make a yummy Hawaiian pizza. Served fast by friendly staff. Medium to low price, and well worth it. Great view. Didn't try the ceviche, but it looked really nice, and the people next to us having it were quite impressed.

The Sundog Cafe is located on a terrace out to the lake. Established by a gal from Alaska, it is kind of a freak center with all kind of alternative travellers. Food is excellent, with Pizza from the wood stove as special and the daily...menue a real good catch and great value vor money. All together an easy going place to hang out away from the dirty and noisy main road.More
