The food is DELICIOUS! Marcos and his family make your feel like YOU are family and you are eating at home. If you order a glass of wine, it is huge! Many sodas don't have beer or wine, so this place is a plus alone just for that. The yucca is better than any potatoes that you may order, which... More

We went twice. We were at Camino Verde. It's a good place to go for lunch. Shared a fish lunch and had the chicken fried rice. The owner will maybe share his Grappa. ;)

Great prices, fantastic home made tequila. A little off the beaten track but if you look for it is worth your time, I'd imagine we're going back

This is just a small , typical restaurant but i love it so much. Our waiter was so funny, and even poured us some free tequilla, and my meal (Steak Casado) was one of the best I had while in Monteverde!

I went to this Soda restaurant based on some of the positive reviews and I was not disappointed. I had the special fish dish of the day with a shrimp sauce, hot fries, and either salad or veggies. For $12 it was a little overpriced, but the food was fresh and tasted good. And the place was kept clean and... More

Two meal with fruit drink and bottle of bear came out $33. I rather go the other nice soda place around the town... More

The owner was hilarious, and the food is amazing, higher than average prices for a soda but defintely worth it. I never left hungry. I brought my ukulele in the second time we dined and the owner got all animated and insisted that I play for everyone in the restaurant. It was a great place to just go for a... More
