This was an amazingly authentic soda experience, so good that we had to go back the following day for lunch! These lovely ladies gave us free cinnamon and coconut rice pudding for desert and went to every length to ensure we had the best meal...possible. Muchas Garcias Chicas!More

Very cute spot. Extremely affordable. Of the sodas in the area it’s the best. I got the the steak w/ mushroom sauce. The sauce could have been better but the steak was cooked perfectly!

We stopped in expecting a standard soda meal, but this place was really special! The Casado was the best we’ve had, everything was extra fresh and the fish was melt-in-you-mouth delicious. The owner was amazing, he asked us about our trip plans and then hand-wrote...us a list of places to stop on our drive. Plus it was an absolute bargain!More

If you're looking for great service and amazing food, look no further. The service from David was beyond amazing and made us feel incredible during our first visit to a Soda in Costa Rica. Highly recommend the Casados plates.

Decided to travel off the "tourist restaurant trail" tonight and try something local, affordable and tasty. Soda Viquez hit all three! Two plates, 4 beers and friendly service was $23.... Recommend you give it a try

We ate here mainly to get a snack before we had a cooking class later in the afternoon. My wife and I shared the nachos which were really good. They also make fresh fruit juice on the spot which was delicious. Highly recommend going here...for lunch.More

Ordered a Casada and they dished it up from a buffet stand. Couldn’t eat much of it as it wasn’t very appetising, although the chicken was good. To be fair, it was very cheap.

Everything we ordered here was delicious. If You like garlic, then the garlic steak is crazy good, and was cooked perfectly. It came with these incredibly creamy, flavorful smashed potatoes plus rice, another fried yummy potato, and pasta salad. We also got the pinto Gallo,...a very typical Costa Rican dish, that we've had other places. Especially flavorful here. And a hearts of calm salad that was very fresh. The meal ends, as others have mentioned, with a small dish of arroz con leche That was also delicious. Service was very friendly and pretty quick.More

I'm not sure, but I had dinner there late one night, around 9:30 pm and they where still open. And they also serve breakfast. So my guess would be all day every day
