We came here after walking by it all day and seeing it was full every time. We definitely made the right choice in coming here. Had the seafood rice and the typical Costa Rica plate with grilled fish. Both were muy bueno and large portions. The older gentleman serving was extremely nice and made the dinner that much better. Will be going here again.

Spent the last night in Playas de Coco at this little gem at the end of main street.
We ordered the grilled Snapper and a Casado with grilled fish.

Both were excellent and very reasonably priced.

If you are looking for one of Coco's best, look no further. The food and people here are truly hard to beat! Breakfast, lunch, dinner, doesn't matter. Traditional or North American cuisine, the conversation and quality are wonderful! Mackenzie would help us with our Spanish by making us order in Spanish. The family always took time to talk to us and Nelson would always have the saying of the day! Thank you my friends for all the good food and conversations. We will see you next January!

We were looking to try the local foods which they call Soda's. If you want the flavor of what the region has to offer these are the places you want to seek out. They will in a lot of cases be locally owned and family run. Which seemed to be the case with Jardin. Everyone was very nice and friendly. If they do not have Soda with the name they are going to be a typical restaurant (which is fine). Stopped in for Lunch and while looking at the menu they came out and helped me with what they had. The picture board and his fair English helped. Ordered the red fish and is was very good and priced around $6500 C or $11.50 USD which was a good price for the entire meal. Came out fried, hot and full of flavor. Sides were good too. We ate the hole fish. Recommend Jardin. (do not recommend next door). Do recommend Street Vendor Lady at end by town and church. Watched and saw a lot of the locals come to her. Skewers were chicken or pork. Sometimes corn or plantain. $1.00 each. Keep in mind when you see a price if may or may not include the 13% required Tax and 10% service fee. Ask when you order if it includes this so you don't add an extra 23% again.

We enjoy Costa Rican food, and tried several Sodas while we were there last week. The best one that we tried was Jardin. I had the chicken casado and it was delicious. It had a great sauce that was full of flavor, plus the typical rice, beans and vegetable. For the price, it was perfect.
