The casada con pescado, with rice, black beans, plantains, salad, and tortillas is all I need here. The rice had a light citrus to it, the beans were well seasoned, and the vegetables and fish were both perfectly prepared. Ordered with a cold Imperial... it was the perfect lunch. The place is quiet and away from the hustle of the... More

The food is delicious in this small and intimate family owned restaurant. The prices are very reasonable and the amount of food is plenty. Be there early for dinner because at times it is packed. Strongly recommend it!

Fresh food, good service. Had a typical Costa Rica meal with local fish. Very casual. Not on the beach, but very relaxing.

Had the ceviche, but it was not killer, like others report. Just average. Nice location, off of an alley and crowded, but we were just not that impressed.

This is a good soda (small restaurant) owned by Costa Ricans and serving Costa Rican dishes. Food is good and prices are right. A great option while in Samara.

We live here permanently, cook and eat mostly at home, and have been searching for a good seafood restaurant in the Sámara-Nicoya area for about a year. This soda came to our attention through Trip Advisor ratings. We arrived with friends from abroad about 15 minutes before dinner opened, returned in 30 minutes and got the last open table on... More

Having read all of the great reviews on TA, we arrived at Colochos anticipating a well priced and delicious meal fresh from the sea. It was early, around 7pm and the soda was practically empty. We sat for quite a while before the expressionless waitress brought us our drinks, and it took even longer for her to take our meal... More
