“Best place to eat in Montezuma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We were staying in Montezuma for 8 days. This was by far the best food we had. The best price also! The fish dishes are fresh and yummy and the fruit "batidos" (juice smoothie) are excellent!

“I miss the Casada con Pescado already!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We both enjoyed a hearty, home cooked meal here. Price was very affordable, and the assortment of sides and salads on the Casada dish was superb! Our favourite restaurant in Montezuma!

“Authentic and tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We stopped by Soda Montesol to kill a little time while in Montezuma. A little time turned into too much time, however, on a low dollar check, I would probably have forgotten about us too. The smoothies we ordered were fabulous (guanabana and blackberry) and there was vegetarian options for just about everything on the menu. (vegan would be difficult as most dishes and smoothies contained milk, egg, or yogurt.) The price was very reasonable, as "sodas" in Costa Rica tend to be less expensive. Other places we've been to really capitalize on the "tourists." Authentic resaurant that has obviously been around for a few hundred years.

“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)!
