“Nice place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We went there in the morning and had the typical breakfast. For 2000 colones you could choose from a lot of things (Gallo pinto, fruits, eggs) and also got a coffee or a fresco. The food was good, the rice was a bit dry and it could have been warmer, but in general you can eat there really well.
The athmosphere was really relaxed and the service was great.

“YUM!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Buffet lunch, cheap, quick and very good. This is buried on one of the side streets that lead to the beach. So glad we stumbled onto it by accident. It was very tasty!!

“Quick Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We traveled to Costa Rica via a cruise ship last winter. More than half of our party wanted to go zip lining, leaving the rest of us very hungry. Our drivers asked us if we wanted authentic Costa Rican food and took us to Soda Jaco Rustico. I don't exactly remember what we got, but we were all very happy with our food. I remember getting 2 sorts of chicken dishes with some rice/beans. The food was absolutely delicious - we couldn't stop raving about it! If you're looking for some authentic, yummy Costa Rican food then this is your place.

“Good Casados!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

Real Costa Rican prices and real GOOD soda food! I always like getting the carne en salsa and modongo is good too. Can't complain at all, you put together your own casado by choosing the food in a buffet style matter, food is always fresh and portion size is plenty.

“Soda? Yes, please”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great food, even better prices. Comfortable atmosphere. Only dislike is that we didn't have enough time to go back and eat there again.
