Lily serves delicious food and is so friendly. She makes delicious fruit juices, always served cold. Her gallo pinto is the best I’ve had in Puerto Jiminez.

Lily is a great traditional Costa Rican cook and makes you feel more than welcome in her humble little restaurant. All food is freshly made and she makes homemade sauces and drinks. Authentic, friendly and cheap!

Our restaurant is a cozy and rustic place accompanied with excellence in our meals. Excellent attention and very good prices. We will also have special nights accompanied by learning about the Costa Rican culture and accompanied by very good live music. We are Soda Jimenez in a new establishment and with a new name, but with the same love and affection that you deserve ... we are waiting for you.
