Situated just three giant steps from the best hotel in Cocles and Puerto Viejo - Physis Caribbean B & B, Johanna's is the best soda around. For those of you have traveled in Costa Rica (CR), you know that a soda serves typical CR food - patacones (fried plantains), arroz (rice), frijoles (beans) along with carne/lomito (steak), pollo (chicken) y pescado (fish), camarones (shrimps), y longosta (lobster).
I ate here the first night in town - had the $20.00 lobster - fantastic! I mean, where you can find a $20.00 lobster? She cooks the plantains in butter, I think. Melts in your mouth! She also cooks the rice in coconut milk.
All the meals (6) I had here were delicious. Follow Jeremy's (owner of Physis) advice, and ask what's fresh (fresco). She'll tell ya.
The only reason I consider the atmosphere average, is because the restaurant seating looks out onto a road - not a busy road, but a road traveled by the occasional car, person, dog, or chicken. Not relevant for me - the food's the thing! If you're lucky enough to be staying at Physis, have them deliver to you.
