We drove down the coast to this little town. A true Caribbean hot spot on a Saturday where everyone spills onto the beach, and in town beach area.

We had 'make your own' juice smoothies in this little soda. We laughed as they were out of bananas...in this country really (Del Monte/Ffyes/Chiquita Fruits please take note haha)

I had a Blackberry (span: Mora) and Mango flavoured one.

Nice easy location and nice people.

The food looked good, but we didn't partake on this occasion.

Maxi's couldn't be bothered to open on time so we went across the street here and had casados. They were decent and the fruit drinks were amazing. The food wasn't particularly fast or anything, but we were kind of prepared for that, and we sat and watched the beach anyway.

We got to this soda by coincidence and ordered burgers and shakes.

The food was great - big portions, the shakes was yummy - with lots of fruits and milk.

The prices are OK, same as every other place in Costa Rica.

We will definitely be back here.

Can't compete with the other "sodas" in Manzanillo. Higher prices, dryer food and no spices (for example dried garlic instead of fresh).

Had the Carribean Chicken with vegetables. It came with fries and sauteed onions and peppers. The food lacked flavour and portions were small for the price. Every time the girl working there printed a credit card receipt, she tore it off, crumpled it up and threw it over the fence into the empty lot beside the restaurant. It kind of went with the theme of Manzanillo; dirty and garbage everywhere. I would not go back.
