5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Took a vacation to Costa Rica which was my first time and as soon as i left the airport family took me here! i loved everything about it, the space where they are located to the food. I ordered Gallo Pinto with carne encebollada which comes with eggs & platanos! and i probably came here 4 days out 7 that i was in town! cant wait to go back !

I remember Soda Tapia from early childhood. It is always full of people, clients keep coming back time and time again.

“Not too good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you want a sandwich or something light, you can try this place, but do not expect much. Service is not the best and quality of the food either. Perhaps Gallo Pinto, typical Costa Rican food for breakfast, is the best dish they have.

“Wild and crazy icon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Go to the ST at Sabana Park. Meet Ticos here or just watch the crowd. Dare you to have a conversation with the highway traffic at your feet.
