I have eaten many times at this little soda which overlooks the local park. The patacones are huge and a meal in themselves, but the highlight is the soup--filling and with a hint of chile, the soup is a hearty meal of vegetables and tripe (better than it sounds). It is the perfect meal at the end of a night... More

We have tried the fried chicken numerous times and it has always been delicious and fairly priced. It is served alongside fried yuca or the best fried plantain chips. The owner is delightful and this is definitely a worthwhile stop in Cahuita.

Two entrees a beer and a freshly prepared juice drink cost 8,250 colones ($16.50). The food was delicious and filled us up! The server there was also delightful. BANGING plantains... Most of the entrees were around 3000 colones.

Have the fish with coconut sauce with papas or patacones. It is a very simple dish, but it is so completely fresh and flavorful. You will be in heaven! I had the same thing there each of the three times I went and have no regrets : ).
