I ordered the corvina y salsa blanca. Fish seemed overcooked and dry, same with the rice. My husband had the house nachos, which was more like plain chips and a side of tomato sauce. It was a convenient place to eat based on our location and the service was friendly but we won't be eating there again despite the affordable pricing.

Good little soda.
This place really hit it home for me.
The casado con arroz was perfect and delicious.
Fast service and very friendly.
I like the restaurant also because it is off of the main street which can be hectic
and loud and full of gas fumes from very close traffic.
very nice spot.

Soda La Amistad is located right next to my hostel in Santa Elena and made for a very convenient meal. Serves typical local fare (casado, arroz con pollo, sopas, etc) at reasonable prices, and I was always happy with the excess of plantains that was included with each dish. My favorite thing about the restaurant was the Common Phrases list that they posted at each table to help with potential language barriers.

Tip: order the hot sugar cane juice. It's divine on cold nights.

The restaurant is located on a tiny dirt road in Santa Elena. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The restaurant is small. Some of the servers also speak English.
