Great local spot

Was our first taste of Costa Rican food on our visit. Sat down with the ocean view in front of us and a local soccer game to our left all while the sun was going down. Food came out hot and delicious and we both stuffed ourselves and washed it all down with a pineapple smoothie. Must try!

First of all it is a decent option for having a meal. It's not great, it's not bad. It doesn't look very clean, but it's ok. Prices are mid-range, especially when you have costa rican food. We ate in a group of 5 persons. 3 of us were satisfied with their meal. 2 said that it was not so good.... More

There are 3 sodas adjacent to one another on this corner near the road by Playa Cocos. There are a few tables outside but the beach views were parked by cars and trucks so we sat inside under the ceiling fans. We ordered 2 casados (fried pork chops, steak with onions) and 2 batidos. Our bill came to nearly 13,000... More

A great location across from the beach but that's about it. Gallo pinto (rice and beans) was burnt and flavourless. The menu was unique in being full of excuses or bold messages of what the guest should not expect! There are other, better options nearby.

Local staff at the hotel recommended Soda Teresita for traditional Costa Rica meal. It's off the main street by the sea walk, direct views to the Coco Beach, in one of the corners of the streets that lead onto the beach. It's a local restaurant managed by locals with local cook and local customers. The local, tables, chairs etc have... More

Onan was our server, he speaks very good English and the food was great. Typical Costa Rican dishes that are great. The Soda is right across the street from the beach, delightful.

This is a very nice, local restaurant. We usually went for breakfast, but our group went back repeatedly during our week. Friendly, family place.

Should not be sharing with everyone the very BEST place to get the BEST meal in Coco. We hate to advertise what a great place this is as we might be without our table overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A great place to sit back, enjoy a beer while your supper or lunch is prepared for you What a great place... More

My husband and I enjoyed lunch at La Teresita and are heading back today. Located near the beach at the end of the road, it doesn't look like much from the outside. However, EAT THERE! We both had the traditional lunch dish which includes a protein, beans, grilled plantain, rice and salad. I had perfectly prepared fish and Todd had... More

Really good authentic food at a reasonable price. Had fried sea bass along with gallo pinto and a nice cup of coffee, all within view of the beach. Service was very friendly and accommodating
