I love Costa Rican food and this place has amazing food. Great selection and it changes daily. Definitely eat here while your in jaco. We ate here breakfast lunch and dinner... Wouldn't even consider going somewhere else! Great selection, great price, typical food and definitely delicious!

It's almost like somebody's grandma is in the back cooking. Buffet style, selections plentiful. Ice tea a bit sweet for me but otherwise, a gem off Pastor Diaz Ave...

This is hands down the busiest restaurant in Jaco and for good reason. Owned and operated by a local family that keep the soda clean and neat considering just how much business they do everyday. It's nothing very fancy, but if your feeling like a home cooked Costa Rican meal, this is the place. Open air, buffet style where a... More

You cannot beat the food here and the value! We missed the first day (too late) but let me tell you - you cannot beat this place for a killer "typical" breakfast! four people absolutely stuffed for $20. We never made it back for dinner, but the next 3 days we made sure to eat here for breakfast!

Was highly recommended by the locals here. Came here twice during my 5 day trip in Jaco. They serve specialty dishes from pork feet to ox tails and many other local dishes. Come hungry and expect the long wait on line, but it will worth it.

Rustico is good Costa Rican buffet with wide selection of local dishes. Portions are large. Great value for the money. I eat there on a regular basis.

We asked the staff at Villa Caletas for an authentic Costa Rican restaurant, and were given Soda Jaco Rustico. Could have been for free compared to the resort's food prices. Spent 1200 CRC for two meals! A drink at the resort was 1200 CRC. Food was awesome. Very memorable experience.

Recommended by my man Diego and Costa Rica D tours, this Soda is not to be missed. It is set up buffet style which is great if you are not familiar with Costa Rican Food. You get in line and tell the people behind the counter what you want. Its as easy as pointing to the dish in the chaffer... More
