The place is nicely decorated. It is situated at the edge of the old town near all the new development and a short walk to the two main bus stations. The place has very nice open air seating. The menu reminded me of the "Pan Asian" restaurants in the U.S. I saw quite a few American (locals) during lunch. What... More

I really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere of Jauja. I checked out this restaurant while studying at a Spanish school in Liberia. There were plenty of good options, but I decided to order pizza and I did not regret it! It was super good and I ended up with a pretty cheap bill because I didn't know it but... More

Melissa, I am sad to learn about your rating, since we work very hard to maintain a very good standard.

The open-air vibe of this place is wonderful. It's great for patio dining on a hot night, especially when there is a little breeze. All staff members are very helpful. And the wood-fired pizza is absolutely delicious.

Wasn't my favorite place to eat while in Costa Rica. The food was cold and very basic. Didn't like having window cleaner sprayed all over my table while I was eating in order to avoid the mosquitos.

Great atmosphere with a patio built around a large tree. The service was excellent and the staff knowledgeable. The food was excellent and quick, the kitchen is open to the restaurant and pizza ovens smelt very enticing. We had a ceviche, the calamari and fish fillet dishes - all very good.

Jauja's open-air restaurant is really fantastic. It's really popular with the local professional community because of its ambiance, reasonable prices, and tasty food. I recommend it!

We order a dish of pasta and some fish. Both dishes where nicely served and very good taste. Initially we wanted pizza but the wood oven was not ready. The place was empty so service was pretty good but not perfect.
