Reviewed March 28, 2013

While visiting La Fortuna we had lunch at Soda El Rio! It was a great typical Costa Rican meal for a small price! I highly recommend eating there! Delicious!

Good place to have a nice, reasonable and typical Costa Rican breakfast or any other meal. Family run and personal attention. Great for families on a budget.

“Still love El Rio!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We have visited La Fortuna many times and our first stop is always this family owned soda. Prices are great, and the food is excellent Costa Rican fare. A casada con chuleta is a must! This is our favorite restaurant in Costa Rica. Oh yeah, the french fries are wonderful. The natural drinks are outstanding, we prefer them made with water, the pina and mango are our favorites.
