Arroz con Pollo - regular size

Arroz con Pollo - large size

Casado Vegetariano - regular size

Soda Sanchez – Has the real Costa Rican flavour at a very inexpensive price. The home made meals are delicious and in large portions. This is the place to gauge how far your money can really go. Having only about six tables inside and 4 tables outside it is very small. In fact the kitchen is about double the size of the dining area. It does a large take-out business with the local Costa Ricans. Soda Sanchez is located across the street from the bus station and down one block to the left. Just past Musmanni Bakery.

Monchado's - Specializing in Mexican, Sea food and Fish dishes. I love the Mexican burrito's. Large portions at a moderate price. Large outdoor patio. Located around the corner from Banco National and across the street. 

Miguelito's Pizza Express - Great tasting American style pizza. The crust and cheese are what you would expect from a pizza in the US. Moderate prices. Located behind the Bus Station.

L'Angolo - Italian Restaurant and Deli with good tasting sandwiches and pasta. Moderate prices. Located across the street from Dos Locos. 

Brooklyn Bakery - Bagels, Donuts Bialys and other Baked Goods. Best bread in Town! Quiche and other Light Meals. Located around the corner from The Grand Escape.


Kukula's - Terrific tasting Costa Rican dishes. Moderate prices. Located on the Main Ocean Highway, about 200 yards past Cafe Milagro or 100 yards past the bridge. 

Fruteria and Soda la Feria - The best fruit stand in Quepos. If you are lazy like me you can buy chilled water melon, papaya, pineapple by the slice. Prepared take out hot dishes at low prices. I love the fried sweet plantains and mashed potatoes with onions and cilantro. Located beside Pali Supermarket. 

Marisqueria Jiuberths - I have been told this is the hidden gem of  the Fish Restaurants. The owner is a fisherman and his wife does the preparation. Though not really known by tourists this small establishment serves what is called the best tasting fish meals. The portions are large. Now located on the way to the airport, a taxi will be needed to take you to and fro.


Grande Escape - Large menu selection and bar. Moderate to Expensive prices. Now located in the Marina.

Escalofrio – Italian cuisine. Beside Dos Locos Restaurant.

Dos Locos – Tex-Mex, meeting place and bar. Some nights have live entertainment. Across the street from the Bus Station.
