This soda is not in the centre of monteverde but really close and worth to go there. The food is super cheap but you get a lot on your plate and it tastes good, one of the best sodas we've been in Costa Rica. Owner was really sweet too.

I read about this soda on Trip Advisor and decided I had to try it! It's located a little outside of the main town (but not far at all!) so they don't get quite as much traffic as some of the other places. The owner is a sweetheart and the food was delicious! The smoothies are amazing as well! I highly recommend it! Just ask a local where to find it!

I ate here 2 years ago, and had a really good meal. I returned last week, and once again had a friendly, delicious typical Costa Rican meal. The fruit and juices are fresh and the portions are ample. We will definitely go back if we end up in Santa Elena again.

We read all the rave reviews and decided to try it. We must have different dining preferences? The raved-about sea bass was swimming (pun intended) in a sea of avocado/mayo? sauce. My pork fajitas turned out to be a grilled, fatty, salty, pork-like sausage. The meals were edible, but far from "the best meal of our trip." We aren't fussy or snobby.......there are many similarly-priced sodas all throughout the country and so far, after one week, this was the poorest meal of them all.

Had lunch at this charming little soda, the guy who ran the place is really friendly and nice. We had the chicken with avocado and the garlic shrimp. Both plates came with rice,beans, salad and yucca, generous portions. The food was cheap & good and the juices refreshing! Highly recommended!
