Very local Costa Rican food and clientele. Cat on floor with chicken, the latter defecating, not an especially nice welcome from the waiter at lunch. Yes, not expensive but although traditional I would rather not return. The food was decidedly average; nice to have the...More

This was the best Soda we ate at on our trip. Everything was so good and big, big portions. The price was right!! Can't go wrong eating here.

Decided to try the soda after getting poor service at a trendy restaurant 50 meters away. Were pleasantly surprised about the good service, selection, generous portion sizes and best of all, the prices. We now eat at sodas regularly.

I've had both the fish Casado and the garlic shrimp with French fries. Both were amazing and I've heard the chicken is great too! Not as expensive as most places and my friend likes the smoothies.

Genuinely on-the-sea towns are rare. Rare too in tourist regions are restaurants offering un-Americanized meals. That is where Soda Brasilito stands out: authentic Costa Rican dishes at affordable prices. Expect rice and bean combinations with fresh seafood dishes.

Very typical casado style food. Family own and operated. Cheap and fresh costa rican style food. Would recommend this to anyone in the area.

This is where the locals eat! Everything is delicious and the staff is pretty friendly (though our waitresses were teenage girls and that seemed to be most of the wait staff, so expect typical teenager politeness, not the warm friendly service you get everywhere else).
