This restaurant was recommended to us be a couple different locals so we decided to try it out. Lots of people were dining which was a good sign. The food was excellent and the prices were reasonable.

Nothing special but food was served quick and hot. Staff very nice but no English. I'd recommend this if you want something more typical and slightly off the beaten path

The Soda looks very simple from the outside but the food is very good and the price is fitting perfectly! :)

Soda Viquez was recommended by a local, we actually saw him eating there later. They don't disappoint, 3 star food, 5 star service, great milkshakes. If you're at La Fortuna, I warmly suggest you try this place as your regular place to eat.

The majority of restaurants add a 10% service charge as the tip rather than tourists having to figure it out. Add more for exceptional service. The reaction by the reviewer is from someone who does not travel outside the... More
