Simple, perfect food & gracious service.

Might be the best fresh fish I have EVER eaten. Pricey for the area, but not bad. Worth every cent. Amazing seafood creations. I had fresh red snapper, grilled whole, simply spiced. My teenage son doesn't like seafood, so the chef created a fantastic & simple pasta dish just for him. Here... read more

The food very good,but we felt some disappointed with this thing that they don't have a phone number to make a simple reservation. ..te rest of it very good. Hopefully you guys get a full normal phone number like all restaurants supposed to have especially for reservations. Thanks for the atención by the way .

Home-made pasta and seafood literally plucked from the ocean 2 hours before we dined, plus live duet singing native and Top 50 tunes--this place is to die for. Our dinner was truly one of the best meals we've ever had outside the U.S. The owner sat and talked to us and the wait staff was unbelievably attentive. A-plus, plus, plus.

This is a charming place with lovely outdoor ambience in a little courtyard with a fountain, good music, friendly staff and amazing tuna carpaccio. The sangria was pretty darn good too! Will return again and again as it is walking distance from home.

I had homemade pasta with meat sauce, bread with oil and balsamic vinegar and bread - it was a nice meal but nothing special. The only reason I sat here for dinner was that I was too tired to walk back into town and the location was central to where I was staying.

If you are in a hurry, please stay away from this place! and the food was so so....I had heard about this place but once we went, it was nothing to write home about. I will not be going back. And it is NOT cheap!

Grilled Red Snapper blew my mind. Perfectly grilled, great taste, great presentation! And comes with grilled vegetables - a great choice. Until now my favorite fish was served to me on Ibiza island 7 years ago. Soda Meditteranea beat it! Staff is super friendly too. The restaurant is hard to find. It's in the courtyard of a little shop center... More

Soda Mediterranea sits in the courtyard of Pueblito Sur, Playas del Coco. The first night we were there it was after having endured the drive from Liberia airport in the dark and the check-in at the Playas de la Palmas where we were staying. It was after 10:00 PM and we were tired and hot. Alessandro greeted us warmly and... More
