Our group of 4 went late in the evening around 9pm, chose items from their lunchroom style side and after trying nearly all the items they had to offer we were pleasantly surprised at how delicious it all was! A few of the dishes we had were: Brisket, fried rice, fried chicken, sauced steak and many others I don't know... More

I went there for breakfast I got the typical Costa Rican breakfast, great price, great portions, and really nice service. If you want to explore Costa Rican food this is the place.

stopped in for lunch when walking around town. Food was decent and filling with a large, varied menu. Seems to be a lunch stop for tour groups. Good service.

Even with a large group of Americans who all wanted a small alteration to their order the waiter, Juan, was really good. We started with fresh fruit drinks: Banana, papaya. Mulberry, limon and others. All fresh, made to order. The chicken nachos and fruit plate were adequate starters for 8 of us. Every meal we ordered was tasty and well... More

My boyfriend and I tried to eat at Sodas, because we wanted local cuisine. We found that a lot of the sodas served the same food and did not have a big variety on their menu. We ate here and really liked it. We ordered nachos as an appetizer and I ordered arroz con pollo. My boyfriend ordered a steak... More

Good atmosphere, enjoyed the food, especially liked the Ceviche, garlic chicken, and pizza. Would definitely recommend eating dinner here. Our granddaughter enjoyed the dessert which was a chocolate brownie with ice cream and fudge which she shared with everyone. Only downfall, got a few bug bites on our legs.

We came for lunch on our way out of town the last day. Our party of 5 ordered pizza, typical plates, and fried chicken. The fried chicken was superb! The arroz con pollo and pizza were very good as well. Service was good and it's on a main street so it's a fun place for people watching. We would definitely... More

Arrived in La Fortuna in the evening. This resturant was on the main road thru town and had a crowd so decided to eat pror to checking in hotel. The crowd was tour busses bringing people in large groups. Probably because it is cheap. By far the least attractive food of our 3 week trip to Costa Rica. There are... More

A friend and I were in la Fortuna for the night and we came across this lovely pizzeria. All the prices were very good for travelers on a budget as well as the drinks too!

The food I had was pretty good I had a small pizza, salad and fruit plate. The pizza was alright but not the... More
