Soda Viques is right in the town. We had Casado (“Married Man”, local food of rice, green salad, black beans, potato) with beef and with chicken. Unlike other Cadado we had, it also served a side dish made of beets/egg/potato that I enjoyed. With fruit shakes, milk shakes, the total bill was ~ $30 for 3. You can’t beat the... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. Such a nice local place with great food for very decent prices. They serve Arroz con Leche after your meal just from the house. Really nice atmosphere - we will come back again. The Costa Rica taco is very good.

Great food, and friendly staff. This is our second visit to Costa Rica, and this is the/first place where we felt like we were being served local food by local people who cared about what they are serving. It's a breath of fresh air. It's simple, inexpensive, local food.

By far the best meal we had in Costa Rica and probably the cheapest. We had the chicken & rice (so flavorful), a cheeseburger, and a fish filet in avocado sauce (yum). I would highly recommend the food!

Very welcoming to tourists and the waitress , Rosa, gave great descriptions of the dishes. The best meal we had in Costa Rica and the best... More
