“Great Tico food!”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

My husband and I tried this restaurant because we wanted to try the local fare. It did not disappoint. Typical for Costa Rica, the service was pretty laid back, but the food was great. My favorite, however, was the pineapple and coconut shakes (which are not made with ice cream but with milk). Yum! We even picked up a couple to go when we were heading out of town. I would highly recommend this restaurant. This was one of the better deals for the money that we found in La Fortuna.

“Big Disappointment”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We went here because of rave reviews. Very disappointing. Did not go back and do not recommend. We had other local food and enjoyed it.

“Great Local Costa Rican Food”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We were told to try Soda Viquez because we wanted to try traditional Costa Rican food. What an outstanding choice Soda Viquez is! The food was fabulous...Sea Bass in Avocado Sauce, Chicken in Spinach sauce, Rice and Chicken, Beef Tenderloin Costa Rican. All 4 meals were very different and delicious...enjoyed by all (included two teenagers)! The service was great...thank you Rosa for your kindness and hospitality! When in La Fortuna don't miss out on this great gem!

“What a great place”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This restaurant is good value. Food is quite tasty and the folks who run the place, one woman in particular, bend over backward to provide quick service. Better than the restaurants on the square and a bit around the corner from the main hubbub but you'll find it with some exploration.

“You gotta eat here”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Great spot. Fortunate enough to have stumbled upon this little place. Seemed busy and so looked it up here on Tripadvisor. Definitely a must do for us so walked in and sat down. Asked a couple next to us what they were having and turned out to be their second time there. They recommended the garlic fish which was amazing. Priced right, service was excellent (thanks Marie) and left completely satisfied.
