Breakfast at Soda Jaco Rustico is so popular, my advice is to go early to get a seat. The food will be there, but not always. Sometimes they run out of breakfast. Not to worry, lunch will soon follow. It's a quiet side street, the taxis know where to take you, and they will stay for breakfast too.

Great local spot. The food is authentic tico fare and the prices are very cheap. Fed my family of 3 with drinks for less than 17 bucks.

This was by far the best value in Jaco! My husband and I stopped by for lunch after our ATV tour. I don't think I spent over $10 for the both of us! And the food was pretty good. If you want to sample authentic Costa Rican food look no further!

The locals all pointed us to this restaurant citing it was authentic local food for a great price. We were not disappointed. Although you are served though a buffet line the food is very fresh and of great quality.

We thought this was an excellent place for lunch. The food was so good and there is no way you could beat the price. I would definitely recommend trying Rustico for a delicious Costa Rican lunch!

A friend recommended Rustico to us and we cannot thank him enough. This place has, for half the price of even average restaurants on the main strip, really tasty, good Costa Rican dishes. The restaurants works in a semi-buffet style where you pick from what they have that day, both cold and hot dishes, and a server puts the dish... More

We loved it here. We went for lunch and it was amazing. You know the food is great when there's so many locals there! The people behind the counter didn't speak much English. So just pick with your eyes, you can't go wrong!
