Earlier in the week, before we ate at Soda Mediterranea, we heard beautiful guitar music in the court yard. We made reservations for Friday when the guitarist would be playing again. The court yard is shared with 4 other restaurants so the music can be heard at all. We loved the atmosphere with the music and the candles at night.... More

We stumbled in here on our first night (based on TA reviews) & had a WONDERFUL meal! The food was great, as was the sangria and the service. My husband & I visited Cinque Terre earlier this year, and were delighted when the seafood here (lovingly prepared by the 2 Italian chefs) was as good as we had literally had... More

My wife and I ate here tonight because of its high rating on TripAdvisor, and the site did not let us down! We started with carpaccio (hammerhead and mahi-mahi), both delicious. We had the fettucini pasta but with a gluten-free substitution, which again was excellent. For the main course we had the whole fish, tonight a red snapper that was... More

Even though it says Mediterranean, the food is more Italian. The do call it a soda, which typically for Costa Rica is a little local eatery, but this one is more fancy and not exactly on the cheap side. They do have hand made pasta and it's very good, service is nice and prompt. They have fresh fish that they... More

We stumbled upon Soda Mediterranean when we were looking for another Italian restaurant. We were surprised by how delicious the food was -- but then we learned the chef is from Milan, Italy. Both of us really enjoyed our appetizer -- unfortunately I can't remember what was called, but we both really enjoyed our ravioli. Then in true Italian fashion,... More

Perfection. I was the happiest human being on Earth. The fish was awesome, the brochetta was delight.

This was far and away the best meal I had during my time in Costa Rica. We had the caprese salad, seafood linguine, linguine with shrimp, portobello mushrooms and shaved truffles, and seafood risotto. And of course, plenty of sangria. Everything was excellent. Great atmosphere and service. Will definitely be back.

Outdoor patio at its best. We sat at long tables with candles which gave us a nice experience under the stars. The have fresh fresh fresh seafood. They let you choose the fish tableside before they cook it. Great service and attention. I highly recommend the Red Snapper.

Thank Edwin H
