Found this place to be pricey. My wife ordered the fruit plate, and she was underwhelmed by the quantity and selection that arrived. In a tropical area such as this, you would expect more.

Good local food at a reasonable price, helpful and friendly service- watch out for the land crabs wandering around the tables!

The "Soda" restaurants are essentially food served out of someone's kitchen. The service was normal for Tico time, meaning slow per US standards, but the casado's were good and the price reasonable. It's a good place for an inexpensive meal, but don't go if you're in a rush.

Had a nice lunch at this little soda. After checking out the tourist trap Maxis, we choose wisely. The food was tasty and very cheap. Support the local businesses and enjoy!
You can hear the waves as you sit on the patio.

We ate here because we were trying the local sodas in Manzanillo whilst we stayed there. Unfortunately this was not a good one. The food was tasteless and we didn't fancy eating it as the soda itself seemed so dirty and unhygienic.
