Loved everything about this soda. You can eat here for the typical $5-7/meal. The service is also slightly quicker than other sodas but still pretty slow service. I had an recommend the casado pescado. And every time you eat at a soda get a fresh fruit juice. Delicious! We hit this soda up after doing the hanging bridges and cataratas la fortuna and it was perfect. Would definitely go again.

Love this place. I frequent it for a delicious Tico style breakfast.... seriously great food and at great prices with quick service. I can be a picky eater and living in Costa Rica can get sick of the casados...but not here. Always finish my plate clean. The family is also super nice and laid back, it is a local hotspot, so you know its good. :) One cute thing I love about it is their coffee mugs -- sometimes you'll get Winnie the Pooh, sometimes Spongebob Squarepants, sometimes Tweetie Bird. Always makes me smile!

Great food, great value ($4 for a BIG casado plate), fast service, packed with locals. One of the best sodas in the country.

Ordered a fish casado and one of the juice mixes, both of which tasted great! Not much of a view since it was between a busy road and a dirt parking lot. You can tell it's where the locals went for food, since everyone knew each other there.
