Keep Your Friends Close
and Your Pizza Closer
El Wagon boasts an antique rail car as part of the dining experience; the wood siding and rails beneath it give it a unique feel and a place to enjoy El Wagon’s renowned pizza.
“We offer a wood fired Pizza, from a sidewalk café setting... and we especially enjoy seeing the connection this allows people to have with their meal... by watching the whole process and being part of it.”
Washington state transplant Peter Zobrist says, “I really like the pizza but Cesar the host is the pearl in this oyster. Nice work all around.”
Vacation rental home owner Joni Duncan says “Yum – I enjoy the oven fired Vegetarian Pizza with bacon and some good conversation with the management”.
English teacher and stay-at-home mom Caroline Farley Suarez agrees “El Wagon always serves a wonderful meal at a reasonable price. Sloth, monkey and boa sightings are a plus”. Whoa! Did she say boa? Luckily, snake sighting are extremely rare in Manuel Antonio.
Next to THE rail car is a large deck surrounded by jungle. THIS magnificent mosaic floor reflects the diversity of the treetops above and the sea below. Guests become captivated trying to identify butterflies and birds or exotic sea creatures such as THE octopus MOSAIC.
“Doing the mosaic floor at El Wagon was really fun“ SAYS MANAGEMENT, It also reflects a little of THIER eco-conscious style of business.
Around El Wagon you can find wooden furniture that has been produced by one of El Wagon’s NEIGHBORING, businesses from locally sourced wood. The wood fires that cook the renowned pizza are similarly fueled by timber that is recovered from either fallen trees or TREES THAT WERE felled for civic works, like the installations of the monkey-friendly insulated power lines:
“I don’t consider that recycling.” SAYS MANAGEMENT, “I consider that taking advantage of left-over stuff.” This business is both cost effective and contextually sensitive.
