My wife and I were stuffed for about $11USD and the food was delicious. The vanilla milkshakes and iced tea are also great.

Lunch here was our first meal in La Fortuna as it was so close to the bus station when we arrived late for lunch. The food was very good and well priced; service left much to be desired. On our last day, we ate breakfast while waiting for our bus and the service was excellent, super-fast and the food was wonderful. Both meals, we were happy with the prices and generous portions, and we enjoyed the food and the casual atmosphere.

We had lunch at la hormiga on our 2nd day in Costa Rica, and in all our journey we did not find a place matching its taste even though we ate at many... I mean many sodas!! I had the vegetarian casado and my bf had the chicken casado. The vegetarian one had many different type if veggies, the rice and beans had a spice pallet I long to taste again, the salad was only average but still better than many places! Also, the fresh juices were real good!!
Only down side is that they always serve you with a straw and by then we did not have the reflex to ask without: #lessplastic #protectmarinewildlife #nostraws

We visited La Hormiga for supper one evening while in La Fortuna. It's on quite a busy street so finding parking can be tricky, but there is lots of free parking in their lot out back, and you can enter the restaurant either through the front or the back. Our friendly server and the delicious smells of the kitchen greeted us as we entered.

The restaurant was quite busy, but there were a few spots available and we choose a picnic table near the front for our party of 4. We all decided on casados or pollo y arroz for our meals and were surprised how cheap the prices were. Our meals came a short time later and we all received large plates of delicious-smelling food and quickly dug in.

We had done a big hike earlier that day, so were all pretty hungry, but even so we found it difficult to finish our plates. Unfortunately the traffic from the street was a bit noisy at times, especially as it was dark out and so there were several loud vehicles out and about. A table near that back would have shielded us from the street noise better. For the delicious, ample amounts of food at incredibly reasonable prices and the friendly service, we would definitely recommend a meal at Soda La Hormiga.

We traveled with two children under the age of 10 and the staff was so friendly and nice. We had dinner here both nights and just loved the taste!! Our kids finished their plates too. Food comes fast and it costs under $25 for 4 plates of food with fresh juice.
