We enjoyed an evening meal at Restaurante El Coloso. The service was friendly and the food was flavourful and reasonably priced. The three of us had a small order of Panatones, Marisco Soup, Rice with Shrimp, and the Chicken Casada. The portions of all the dishes were definitely satisfying! We were glad we went to El Coloso and would recommend you try it too!

Went to town to get dinner, saw the restaurant on the road on the way, turned around to try. Really good casado - got pork. My husband got the arroz con pollo - delicious! HUGE portion. I also ordered a mango shake with milk - very good. Great service, but one downside is it's off the busy road, so you may hear cars going by, but it's not too bad. It doesn't affect how good the food tasted.

Our tour guide recommended this place and we're so glad we went! Three of us got patacones -- one share a large size and split it with half beef, half vegetarian. I got the small size with chicken. My husband had small nachos and a chalupa and loved it. Too much food was the only complaint. Menu is in English and Spanish (as are most in CR) and the wait staff was SO nice, and although they didn't speak English, we got our points across. It is on the main road, though, so of course, traffic might be louder than you'd like. But that's the nature of Soda's I think: they're not fancy. This one had lots of covered seating though and was very cute, clean and inviting.

Looking for great local food then this is the place. Food was delicious. Dinning outdoors, despite being on a busy road, was fun. Servers were anxious to please. Must save room for the chocolate cake! And they take AmEx

We are here after a day on the ATVs with Power Wheels Adventures ATV tours just up the street. That was amazing by the way! We loved the food here and the prices. Would definitely eat here again. We got the Sopa Marisco and Casado with fish.
