Our family ate here twice during our stay in Cabuya. The little outdoor patio was a great place to spend time, have good food and watch the locals go by. The food was very good with good sized portions. We had nachos, fish, pork, shrimp and pasta in our visits there. They do serve alcohol here and take credit cards... More

Marvin's is one of the best places to eat in Cabuya. We live in Montezuma but we stop at Marvin's when passing though.

I love it, and the family who owns the place is the sweetest on the face of the earth. It's also VERY WELL PRICED! Food is EXCELLENT, fresh and wholesome, and simply delicious. Great value, best food I've had of Costa Rica cuisine. Love the family so much too, sweet as pie.

We had the whole fish (snapper) and the chicken quesadilla. Soda Marvin is spotless and by far the nicest soda with the best quality food we've had at a soda in Costa Rica.

This soda serves up some of the best food we have tasted in Costa Rica. The portions are too big but otherwise no fault found. We had nachos piled high with tasty cheese, guacamole to die for, refried beans and chicken plus a very generous plate with 2 big chicken burritos on a mound of salad, avocado plus an exquisite...

After hiking around Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve on a beautifully hot day we hitched a ride into Cabuya and stopped at Soda Marvin. The food was unbelievably delicious!! The plate of nachos was piled high, loaded with chicken and guacamole! After that meal we decided we had to walk the 3km back to our place just to work it off!

We had heard such great things about Marvin's, but of the 4 local establishments we ate at in Cabuya this was our least favorite. We arrived around 9:00 one morning and a very sleepy eyed gentleman eventually portrayed to us that they wouldn't be open for another 20 minutes. We had plans for the day so we needed to have...

We stayed in Cabuya for eight days and ate at least four dinners at Marvins. If you want to experience real home cooked food, don't miss this place. Probably the best local meals we had in Costa Rica. The whole family is involved with the daughters serving and mom and dad in the kitchen. Our favorite was the Maki Maki(Dorado)... More

We would go there pretty much everyday for 3 weeks. The food was good and very cheap. The service was great and they would always bring us some little extras for us to try. My sisters really enjoyed the cats. They managed to serve us, even when there was no electricity.
