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

A cozy restaurant tucked away just off the main road. The dishes are served tapas style, so it is easy to overdue it. Everything we tried was great. Can't go wrong at Jolly Roger.

Great restaurant run by friendly couple. Appetizers during happy hour are delicious and my 1 1/2 year old screams, "Pizzzza, pizzzzza!" as we drive up the road towards Jolly Roger.

This is am amazing restaurant with lots of options for vegetarians and carnivores alike. Jolly Roger has created a night life in Pavones! They host costume parties, monthly all-you-can-eat buffets and live music. They have excellent specials and happy hours. This is one of the few foreign managed businesses where locals and foreigners alike enjoy the casual pirate atmosphere.

Jolly Rodger is the best local bar to meet friends, see music, have delicious food and enjoy a casual atmosphere with all the right local Pavones vibes. The owners are always friendly and are hardworking and consistant with service and product. Happy hour is the best deal in town with a drink and a tapa included you can't go wrong.... More
