My husband and I had lunch here. It was fantastic. I had the Mahi Mahi fish platter. Way more than enough! I couldn't eat it all! Everything was fresh and tasty and the service was super friendly. We'll be back!

Spent the last night in Playas de Coco at this little gem at the end of main street. We ordered the grilled Snapper and a Casado with grilled fish. Both were excellent and very reasonably priced.

We enjoy Costa Rican food, and tried several Sodas while we were there last week. The best one that we tried was Jardin. I had the chicken casado and it was delicious. It had a great sauce that was full of flavor, plus the typical...More

I make it a point to eat local food and the majority of the time I eat at sodas. This experience for breakfast was extremely disappointing. This was also my first and last time at this place. I had the tropical breakfast which consisted of...More

Hey there! Depends on the size of the group and how busy they are at the time, I think they have around 5 or 6 tables in there that fit 4 people on each. It's possible there's a 6 seater table but my memory is rubbish I... More
