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.

Out for a drive to see the area and just lucked upon this quaint soda in Brasilito. Across the park from the beach. girls don't speak much English, but I have been practicing my Spanish and was actually able to order breakfast for my husband and myself.

More a casual restaurant that a genuine Costa Rican soda, the el Coco nevertheless provides a good meal and attentive service at a reasonable price. It’s a particularly good deal for breakfast; the Desayuno Europeano is a very generous fruit plate with jam and a piece of toast; and the coffee is great.

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.

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).

Just up the road from the beach in Brasilito you'll find the Soda Brasilito next to a few shops and a small super. Typical food choices and mostly local customers there on the late afternoon that we stopped in. Food was good, beer was cold and the service was quick!

Not far from the Brasiltio beachfront, great typical Costa Rican food for little money. One of the best ceviches I had on the trip. Definitely worth eating here when visiting Brasilito Beach.

We ate here for lunch and were impressed by the selection of foods. Its a good place to stop and eat like the locals. The food was good and priced right. Don't be afraid of the atmosphere because this is local Costa Rica.
