Good food, great ambiance, clean, and friendly waiters. Delicious food with big servings for a good price. I went there twice during my 4 days at Arenal. Sadie, one of the servers was very welcoming and sweet. Overall, the atmosphere was calm and family and...pet friendly.More

An enjoyable meal out at this popular soda. Food was classic Costa Rican and very tasty. It was a busy but very friendly place. Good value for money, and a great night out.

We found Soda Viquez on Google and we're so glad we did! We had the casados vegetariano and loved all of it. We also had a tamarind drink and iced tea, again perfect for the weather. The staff were lovely. Would definitely recommend!

Our family needed a quick bite to eat after a long day of adventures. We were greeted warmly here and thanked profusely for coming in, even though there were plenty of other customers. The food was good typical food. My husband and I enjoyed our...meal very much and the warm welcome made it that much better. To top it off they were playing American football on TV, which we couldn’t get back at our house. Bonus points!More

A little bit of a drive from the hotel but well worth it. The lomo relleno was one of the best dishes I've had during the trip. The soda is very family friendly in both cuisine and service. Definitely worth the trip out!

Home away from home. Tastes like mom cooked it just for you. We came here for half of our trip: amazing arroz con pollo! I think we had 6 arroz con pollos in total, along with Casados and lots of mango juice. Simply amazing soda:...even our hotel staff recommended it!More

The staff were very nice. The food was not. The hamburger my daughter had was flavorless and the nachos my husband and I had were awful. They were cold and the cheese was like canned cheese sauce. The rice pudding that was brought at the...end of our meal however was delicious! I should have just had a big bowl of it.More

We really enjoyed our visit to Soda Viquez. Bigger than usual portion of Casados (local dish) and the staff are super friendly and welcoming. They even sang me happy birthday which was really sweet when they found out it was my birthday.

Our travel agent, tour guides and our Uber drive all recommended Soda Viquez. With such high expectations, they did not disappoint. The team there (all very friendly and kind ladies from what I could see) were very customer focused asking guests how they heard of...the place and if they were enjoying everything. This isn't the cheapest Casado in La Fortuna, but I do feel it's a good value in the area. The flavors, the number of side dishes, execution make it worthwhile. My wife and kids got the Casado while the chicken soup caught my eye. The soup was delicious and a full meal in itself. A place enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. It was one of the busiest restaurants we visited during low season - a good sign. My only regret is that we had time for just one meal. I can't wait to go back.More

Delicious 😋 must try! Honestly, this little mom and pops restaurant is way better than some big restaurants. Food is tasty and customer service is great.

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
