Food is really good we had the chicken Casado! Service was really good and you get real Costa Rican food that’s not expensive at all. The guanábana and tamarindo drinks are really good.

This is our second soda restaurant and by far the best portion meal I’ve had here. The food is delicious and it’s for less than five dollars a plate. Trust me you won’t be disappointed.

Our first Casado in Costa Rica! It didn’t disappoint!.. Food was gorgeous and staff were fast, even though there was a table of 15 in at the same time. Were patient with our English and lack of Spanish speaking. A must visit!

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
