We looked for a local restaurant at a reasonable price for a quite a while on here. Most of the restaurants in this area seem like tourist traps that are over priced. We finally decide to take a cab from our hotel (royal corin which is excellent by the way) to Soda Viquez. The variety and staff were excellent right from the start. No, this is not a 5 star restaurant, but if you are looking for somewhere that represents that laid back friendly feel of Costa Rica, then you will enjoy this place. We had coconut shakes, grilled Covina and Cansado con pollo. Everything was wonderful and it was the perfect way to end an excellent day in Costa Rica.

Had dinner with my girlfriend. Really good food at a great value. She ordered the Sea bass and I had the tenderloin steak. They served complimentary bread, steamed veggies, rice and rice pudding with the meal. We left stuffed. I think the owner or a family member of the family that owns the place was there because she was waiting tables and shaking the hands of the customers after the meal which was cool. Total price for our two dinners and two milkshakes was 10,200 colonies (approx $22) so very reasonable prices.

I went with my girlfriend to have a lunch and in every time we had the best treat, Rosa our waitress took her time to explain us the typical dishes in the country. The right place to feel like home.

Awesome food, large portions, excellent prices. Run by very nice people. It's about two blocks up after the roads splits.

We ate here our last night in La Fortuna after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. It was the best Costa Rican food (Casado to die for!)we experienced with the lowest prices and really friendly waitresses. Wish we had found this place sooner- I think we would have eaten here every day!
