Went to Soda Viquez from reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Was not disappointed. The staff were great and very friendly! Prices are amazing given the portions you recive, no comings about leaving hungry.
About the cat I read in other posts... I didn't mind one bit. We have been traveling through out Costa Rica for a week now, and I can remember being to a restaurant or bar and not having seen a dog, cat or parrot milling among the customers. It's a way of live here!
I would strongly recomend this place

Tucked away down a side street it is easy to miss this Soda but we went hunting armed with directions from our hotel and we are so glad we found it.
The food was excellent probably some of the best meals we ate in Costa Rica and the price was so reasonable with generous portions.
The service was really attentive and helpful with our questions about what was what and did not mind when we saved some chicken for the cat.
You have got to try the pineapple coconut juices really hit the spot after a day walking.

We had the usual rice and beans plate that was offered with chicken, it came with some sides and was very good. I tried the Cas, it is a juice drink, very refreshing and tropical. The service was good, people were very helpful for those of us who didn't speak Spanish.

The owner was very attentive and even went to the trouble of learning our names. Food is traditional, with large portions and lots of flavour. Prices are very reasonable at about 2,500-4,500 colons for a main. It is worth keeping in mind that this is a low thrills soda restaurant, but the food meant that it stood out during our visit to La Fortuna.

We are visiting arenal for the first time so naturally looked to Trip Advisor for restaurant choices. We wanted to go into town for dinner and wanted a clean place with good native food and a great atmosphere. This place had some rave reviews..... All we got was old cafeteria food, bright lights, and two stomach aches. We are all about culture, but this was laughable compared to the reviews.
