Description: This is a newly constructed restaurant in Pavones offering an eclectic and very tasty mix of Italian, seafood and Costa Rican dishes. Decor is pseudo-pirate themed, with carved seats and benches and maps inscribed on the tables. We have fantastic fish dishes, sorted salads, main courses from mediterranean and italian area and a lot of different snacks plates (tapas). The owners, Agnese and Daniel, are working hard and well to offer an alternative to the usual Tico fare at a remote location like this.open from Monday to Saturday from noon to 10 pm closed on October and November

We consider ourselves wing connoisseurs. These were the best wings in our opinion. We have even made a trip to the original Buffalo Wing Anchor Bar and these wings at the Jolly Roger are hands down the best. Maybe the open air rustic settling in the beautiful country of Costa Rica helped but we highly recommed a trip up the... More

Menu at first glance doesn't look exciting, but don't miss out on this place. Our food was unique and fantastic!

Set in a rain forest surf town, The Jolly Roger in Pavones is the nicest dining experience I have ever had. For three weeks in Pavones, I ate there 5 nights out of 7. Daniel, the chef and owner uses the freshest ingredients. A pargo that was huge and served 9 people easily. A shoulder of pork, bbq, cooked all... More

A tad bit more expensive, but the food was excellent! I'll be back! They have all the typical Costa Rican food, as well as some other specialties. I got the grilled chicken breast, which was served with rice and the best "fries" I have ever eaten... they were like home fries, smaller chunks of fried potato. Very good.

Didn't try out Jolly Roger until about halfway through our 2+ week stay in Pavones, but I am glad I did. This small restaurant is a great spot to hang out and stuff yourself on freshly prepared, tasty food, and it doesn't help that it is really affordable, too! I would eat there with my little girl, and I would... More
