This small soda was packed when we got there but they made room for us. The food was nice and reasonably priced (I recommend the pineapple and coconut drink with milk) and the service good. Personally I think this soda is a little overhyped on...More

The food was amazing, very typical Costa Rican food with a variety of casados but we waited for a very very long time to order and get our food.

I went to Soda Viquez because it was recommended by Lonely Planet. I liked it so much that I returned next day. Very tasty casados, friendly atmosphere and good prices. If I'm back in La Fortuna, I'll definitely eat there again!

Soda Viquez stands out from the crowd of others sodas. We ordered the Casado con pescado. Outstanding, tasty fish with 6 different very tasty add-ons. For just 3000c. Highly recommend it and is our instant # uno in La Fortuna. Friendly family style as well.

We ate here pretty much every night in Fortuna. The food is great, service is amazing and so so friendly. I highly recommend getting a guanabana con agua while you're there, im now addicted to soursop. Really anything on the menu is good.

We stopped here for lunch and were treated so warmly. It is a family run business and the service displays pride in their operation. We had the casado dishes, two pork and one chicken. The interesting part were the sides: each plate had a slight...More

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

Pretty sure the rice and steak cansado is pretty gluten free. As are the numerous fresh salads and such.
