My husband and I both ordered the Red Snapper filets. We loved the fact that one of the options we could order with the meal was mashed potatoes, a mixture of steamed vegetables also came with the plate. Service was very good and loved the fact we could sit outside to eat. Even a fan overhe ad to make dining... More

What an establishment!! The two most significant factors in this review happen to be the beer and the staff. The beer was perfectly cold. When I say perfect, I mean it. You can't get a better temperature on a beer than that and I'm including every place I've been to in Costa Rica and beyond. The waiter (owner) however was... More

This is a local soda place, located almost right next to the beach, so when you are walking from the beach, it's a great place to have a lunch or dinner or just take the big fresh smoothie to go, Seafood is great and portions are pretty big, I had shrimp in garlic sauce and it would be enough to...

Came here for lunch in a big group and everyone left pretty satisfied. The seafood was great! And our waiter - an older gentleman who I believe may be the owner was very friendly and accommodating. Only negative is that we found the prices to be a little high for what you get.

Dinner first night in Cocos. Casado with grilled sea bass and a bold beer. Good but nothing special. We didn't go back. Average dinner. The waitress was very nice

Our last night in Costa Rica was highlighted by our dinner at Soda Jardín Tropical just off the beach. I really enjoyed the Sea Bass and shrimp in mushroom cream sauce. My wife had the grilled chicken salad and was very happy. We then walked along the beach and enjoyed the beautiful sunset. The staff was very friendly and the... More

We chose to eat around 4 PM to get back to our condo before dark. The typical CR dish of salad, rice, beans, veggies and in our case, chicken for me and beef for my spouse was just delicious and very filling. It was approximately $15 total with tip and tax for us both. We opted to sit outside facing... More
