“fair price, tasty meals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

lobster is $22 (20+10%!), but worth the money! Absolutely recommend this soda. The wine is $5 though, get a beer or a juice instead!

“Excellent food and Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We are staying quite close to Johanna's and have made this Soda our "go to" place. There is nothing that I have tried that is simply not prepared perfectly! I had the fish filet in Carribean sauce a couple nights ago and it was wonderful, the fish was cooked to perfection!

“Great meals, good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

This soda is situated right next to the Physis Caribbean B&B where we were staying so it was an obvious choice to go for a dinner if you didn't want to go to the town. Our hosts had recommended the place and I don't wonder why. The food is delicious, we went there twice. Also the batidos taste very good. It is not crowded so don't be surprised if most of the things come out of freezer. It is better that way in that heat and humidity. The price is also very reasonable knowing that the meals are so tasty. The staff is friendly as well.

“Rest Johanna - best authentic food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Rest Johanna (that's how is called locally) is a very cozy place to eat with real authentic food. We ate almost every day since we discover it. Patacones, Casadas, Hamburgers, Tacos, Natural juices (our son was asking every day for his share of those) and deserts, anything you want they have it. And they're so tasty! Love you guys. See you next time.
