“Great value & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

We went to Soda Montesol for lunch. The location is great, right in the middle of the high street. Don't let the decor stop you from going, the food is great (we had very nice casados), and the portions are huge for the price. The lady serving was lovely, very chatty and friendly.
Fully recommend you to go

“Very good food, Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We ate at Soda Montesol once during our vacation in Montezuma. The food was very good and very inexpensive. Its not a restaurant that might cater to tourists (other than perhaps backpackers) and it could easily be passed by. It was one of the tastiest casadas we had during our stay (and we sampled a few)!

“Tico-style soul food and authentic Montezuma ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

I can't recommend this restaurant enough! You want to experience some yummy home style food, bumpin reggae beats, bomb interior decorating, and legitimately friendly service? Montesol is for you. Their casado (a Costa Rican specialty) is by far the best in town--they put all sorts of extra goodies on the plate beyond the standard rice/beans/meat. Also, did I mention that they mos def have the best prices in town? Now stop gaping at your screen and go to Montesol!

“Great food and lots of it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Our tour guide brought a group of us here. I had both breakfast and dinner here. The prices are good, the food tasty and plentiful and the location central. There is a lot of murals painted on the walls and the bathroom is hidden on the back wall set into a mural....of a wooden door. The pasta dinners were huge. The burgers looked really good too. I had a casada (daily plate) with a pork chop and it was a lot of good food. I really liked the watermelon drink. The service was a little slow, however I had plenty of time. Would recommend to family and friends

“A great way to start your day in Montezuma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Soda Montesol is a nicely located small soda at the bottom of the street in the center of Montezuma. They offer local favorites such as gallo pinto and casados. The food is very good and the service is courteous and friendly. If you can get a table close to the street, you'll have a great view of the Montezuma foot traffic. I love their hearty breakfasts and café con leche, and their "jugos naturales," fresh-squeezed fruit juices. It's a great way to kick start your day the Tico way.
