“Leave your resort and enjoy an authentic meal that is twice as good for a fraction of the cost.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We LOVED this place. The food was delicious, with huge plates (I didn't finish mine) but what really makes me want to return is the service. Mari made us feel like family. She really went above and beyond for us and made our experience memorable. We will definitely come back!

“Why pay more?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Great vegetarian options, such as the vegetarian sandwich or the casado. Extremely fresh fish, huge delicious portions. This was our go to lunch spot. The casados were great and all the fresh fruit shakes were out of this world. Friendly service in an open air restaurant where it's common to see many other world travelers.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

I had the filet minion which was both delicious and huge! The best part was the service! The waitress remembered our names, I could probably count on one hand how many times that has happened. The service was quick but didn't feel rushed. She even gave us a dish of rice pudding after our meal, as with everything else it was delicious. Definitely would recommend this place to others!

“The best meal we had in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We recently returned from a 2 week trip travelling around Costa Rica and our meal here was the best meal we had during our trip for quality and value for money. Unfortunately we visited on our last evening in La Fortuna as otherwise we would have certainly returned if we were staying for longer. During the rest of our Costa Rica trip we searched for comparable Costa Rican food but to no avail. Would highly recommend for price, quality and authenticity.

“Great local food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We went to Soda Viquez based upon the tripadvisor's top restaurants in La Fortuna and it didn't disappoint! The host/waitress Maria was absolutely fabulous. She was fun, welcoming, helpful and right on with her food suggestions. The coconut - pineapple drink was delicious and the shrimp and rice dinner was scrumptious! The food was great and very reasonably priced! Made for a fun night in La Fortuna. Thanks tripadvisor!
