We had lunch here while in Drake Bay. Fried chicken casados with passion fruit and guanabana batidos for dessert. The food was tasty, the prices were good, and the view from the main level was nice.

My wife and I loves Soda's and this place is pretty typical. The breakfast was great and the view at sunset is fantastic.

Food was bland and nothing special about it. I did like the view from the top of the hill. You could see the ocean.

You really have to try Marcella's cakes/pies. They are delicious. Also the view on the 2nd floor is the best in town.

Good menu, not overwhelming, and good prices. We both enjoyed our dinners. They serve beer but not wine, however, they let us get a bottle of wine from the grocery store next store and provided wine glasses. Nice view too.

We ate here twice as two couples and were very impressed with the fish casados on the first visit. Delicious red snapper, with a crispy skin on the second visit, the fish soup was also a hit. The smoothies were also refreshing. Nice elevated seating...More

Nice service, good food and fresh fish. The smoothies are also a plus. The ceviche is very fresh and it is served with delicious patacones. A fair price is paid for the service and food.
