Even though it says Mediterranean, the food is more Italian. The do call it a soda, which typically for Costa Rica is a little local eatery, but this one is more fancy and not exactly on the cheap side. They do have hand made pasta and it's very good, service is nice and prompt. They have fresh fish that they... More

We stumbled upon Soda Mediterranean when we were looking for another Italian restaurant. We were surprised by how delicious the food was -- but then we learned the chef is from Milan, Italy.

This was far and away the best meal I had during my time in Costa Rica. We had the caprese salad, seafood linguine, linguine with shrimp, portobello mushrooms and shaved truffles, and seafood risotto. And of course, plenty of sangria. Everything was excellent. Great atmosphere and service. Will definitely be back.

Outdoor patio at its best. We sat at long tables with candles which gave us a nice experience under the stars. The have fresh fresh fresh seafood. They let you choose the fish tableside before they cook it. Great service and attention. I highly recommend the Red Snapper.

This restaurant was so good we went back a second time during our stay of one week. The food was amazing. The atmosphere was lovely. Specials of the night were delicious! Lovely setting outside. One of five restaurants in a courtyard. Both nights there was live music.

The food is phenomenal!!!! We stayed in Coco Beach FOR 9 days and had dinner 4 times. The Chef Paolo is spectacular with the dishes he creates. Hand made pasta and ravioli is to die for. Don't miss it.

Chef Paolo is incredible! We tried every restaurant in town and eventually gave up and just kept coming back here. Every day is a new special, the food never disappoints. My favorite thing was the Gnocci Cremaschi it is the best thing ever!!!!
