Great place for local food that is freshly prepared and so many choices. Had the steak casado and the pork dish and both were excellent. Having some working vocabulary of spanish was ever helpful for me and I highly recommend trying Soda Ranchito Dona Maria....More

I live in Uvita and this humble family run business is absolutely the best you can find in Uvita for Tico food. Good taste and portions, excellent home made hot sauce, friendly staff, reasonable price. Not to be missed, and to be repeated!
