“Fast and delicious - recommended by locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

We went here on the recommendation of our horseback riding guide Eric. We were the only tourists there and there was a steady stream of students, workmen, drivers, and other Costa Ricans. The food was quickly prepared and nicely presented. The place is clean and friendly and reasonably priced. The menu is typical Costa Rican diner (Soda). Highly recommended.

“Must stop soda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Based on a recommendation from a shop owner, we stopped at soda Ara. It is a local hangout and we found no tourists there. The food was the best in the area and the prices were great. Amazing casados (we had one beef and one grilled chicken). Delicious fresh juices. My only regret is not going back day after day.
