Stopped here after our day in Rio Celeste... We were tired and hungry. The food was delicious at a good price! We ordered two casados, one with chicken and the other with beef. The Crema milkshake was awesome!

The menu is very limited, but the food was good. Go on the early side for whatever meal you want to eat here, as it is very popular. Bathrooms were clean, service was good.

Pretty average Typical Food for Fortuna. It's super fast and near the bus, so it's convenient. There's much better food in the town, but if you need it fast it's ok. Sausage was really overcooked and tough and not much seasoning on the rice. Not bad though.

I was starving when I arrived in La fortuna and the guy working the front desk of my hostel told me to go there because it was right around the corner. The place was packed by locals and tourists, which boded well.

The casados plates are cheap and very filling. The food was pretty tasty and the portions generous. Soda La Hormiga is a no-frills kind of place, so don't expect a nice décor and special bells and whistles. People come here for the food and the inexpensive prices. And as a lunch option, it's perfect.

I also had breakfast there twice. The food is just as good, and if you go with the Tico breakfast the portion is big. If you go for the omelet, however, that option doesn't offer the same sort of value. Still, all the breakfast options are affordable and coffee is cheap.

All in all, definitely a place to try out at least once for anyone staying in La Fortuna.
