As authentic as it gets. The true Soda experience for Tico food. Always full of locals. You won't go away hungry. Best $5 meal in town.

This is one of the best and most reasonable places to eat in Jaco. There is a mix of locals and tourists. The only downside is that they are not open in the evening.

This restaurant always has a lineup at lunch time.the food is fresh and with good portions. There is a mix of locals as well as tourists. The only downside is they are closed in the evenings. The fish is always excellent .

Recommended by our hotel Perico Azul, we ate breakfast here five days straight. Cheap, good food, big portions and no need for lunch! More or less fixed price but ordering done by pointing, 2600 colones for gallo pinto, huevos and chorizo, fruit and coffee. Bargain

This is a cafeteria style place that we recently discovered and I have been to twice now. The first time that I went, I was super impressed. It's very cheap, and the food was great. That was for lunch. The biggest problem is ordering for my friends who don't speak Spanish, but they usually can get by with pointing at... More

Someone recommended we try this local soda as it is cheap and great food. We took friends here for lunch and it was great! I wish they had seafood on the menu (ie fish), but the food was great nonetheless. I had rice with shrimp mixed in, green beans, some pasta salad. All of my huge plate of food and... More
