My husband and I are IN LOVE with this place. Family owned, chill vibe, clean, and really friendly. We tasted breakfast and lunch dishes a few times - The food is absolutely delicious! For us, this is by far the best soda in town (and...we tried several of them) - food and price. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!More

On our way back from a sloth tour, we asked our tour guide to drop us off in Fortuna instead of taking us back to the resort and to recommend a good place for lunch. He dropped us here and it was one of our...best meals in the Arenal area. Highly recommend.More

Located off the main road, the staff was extremely nice and thankful that we came in! Started with a pineapple-coconut milk drink which was AMAZING. So tasty. Chicken nachos were simple but very good. I got one of the steak meals as an entree, the...portions are huge! Not sure what everything was that I ate but it was all tasty. They even gave us a small portion of Rice Pudding, on the house, which was to die for!More

This was a great choice for our first meal in Costa Rica. The staff made us feel very welcome and was very accommodating. The mushroom sauce was outstanding!

We ate here twice last December and we've been back twice in the last few days. Food is delicious, portions are large, service is really friendly and we were given free rice pudding too. I asked for fried cheese with my veggie casado which they...did. Prices are really reasonable.More

Food was very delicious at Soda Viquez! But the best part about the meal was the owner sharing with us not only many details about his restaurant and the care they put in the food, covid protocols, and recommendations, but also sharing Costa Rican cultural...information about local meals and traditional food pairings. He was a great host and runs a great restaurant.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
