THE BEST DEAL IN JACO BEACH

Whether you're on a budget or not, this place is thee place to go for a nice tipico lunch. The average lunch cost $6 with a fountain drink, $7 if you want a bottled soda. I can't rave about this place enough. The food is ALWAYS on point. I like ordering the stewed beef , porkchops, and white rice... read more

This is great tasting local food. It is a buffet style restaurant. You get your food very quickly. Great for picking up a quick meal with a real local feel.

Several of the locals told us to eat here if we wanted to try authentic Tican foods. It was a block from where we were staying ( Vista Las Palmas) and we could walk along the beach to get there. Long lines at the busy lunch times, but does move quickly. It's a buffet style, you tell them what you... More

This is a great place to load up on local cuisine, especially after a long surf session. Very inexpensive, cafeteria style eatery. This is where the locals eat and you will find it especially busy in the morning at at lunch time, but the line moves quickly.

This is not a full service restaurant as you walk up to the glass and order your food and beverage. Then you choose a seat in the outdoor seating area and enjoy the very inexpensive local cuisine or how they say "typical" Costa Rican food. We visited on our first day in Jaco, Aug 19, 2015, after not finding Soda... More

Little outside restaurant really close to the beach, good food and great prices. We had a nice breeze and ceiling fans kept it cool.

This restaurant is a short walk from Jaco's famous beaches. The food is good and filling. The wait staff is nice and understands minimal English. We've visited many times during our stay in Costa Rica and the food didn't disappoint each time.

We found this place using tripadvisor and it was definitely worth stopping here for lunch on our way from Manuel Antonio to San Jose. It's cafeteria style, and you can get a full plate of freshly prepared local food and a drink for 3200 colones.

This place did not disappoint, 1st experience of Tico food and it was awesome. Glad we started our food tour experience at a place where you can point and grab. The selection was plenty and the portions was perfect not to much and not a little. The food was delicious! Definitely would recommend to anyone that visits the beautiful place... More
