The food is mediocre at best, I have no idea why it's rated highly. We ordered fish, beef and chicken. All dishes were pretty bad, and the food came out cold. They have pre-made sides that they just scoop out once the meat has been...More

We recently tried this great local spot in La Fortuna. Nachos were decent, Casado was good,and the rice and shrimp were good. As most places have expensive fare for good food in this town, this place is rather inexpensive.

We were a big group and went for lunch here. Obviously Casado was the option to go. They had different ingredients you can add to your Casado. The portions are pretty big and the staff is really nice.

Great food at good prices - the portions are large as in a lot of sodas in Costa Rica but totally delicious! They also brought out a free rice pudding which was a lovely touch.

We needed to get away from the over priced and under flavored restaurant at our hotel so asked the concierge where he'd go for lunch for una comida typica. Soda Viquez turned out to be a very pleasant and tasty stop. The casados were just...More

I'm not sure, but I had dinner there late one night, around 9:30 pm and they where still open. And they also serve breakfast. So my guess would be all day every day
