I would not have picked this place by looks but it is definitely the best food I had on the trip. It's right next to the beach. It was nice to not pay so much for food also. The beans and rice are so good. You can see the food you pick in a glass so you know what your... More

We ate breakfast and it was $5 for 2 plates of very good local cuisine. Beans and rice, eggs, pork, sausage and more....... Absolute worth a visit when in Jaco

For a taste of local cuisine, you can't beat this place. And if you don't know Spanish, just point to what looks good. At these prices, you can afford to try it all.

Make this a staple of your diet while in Jaco. Awesome selection of local food that is both pleasing to the pallet and pocket book. Economical and awesome food enjoyed by all the locals and tourists alike. I literally ate here everyday for lunch the week I was in Jaco and I miss it dearly. One of the things I... More

This was by far my favorite place to eat. Be prepared to make a line if you go there, but boy is it worth it! Buffet style, lots of options, from healthy to not so healthy. Everything I had was very local and very good!

This is a very good place!! Very affordable! Like eating at a Costa Rica home. You will love the Plato del Dia. Where can you eat for about $6.00 a full meal.

This place is amazing. The food was the best we had in Costa Rica. It's cafeteria style so you get to pick exactly what you like and every time we went, everything we picked was delicious.

Always good. Friendly staff. Open air restaurant. Expect a serving line where you will order from a variety of hot and cold offerings like cooked meats, rice beans, cheese, fruit, and yogurt. On average a big breakfast costs about $4-5 US dollars. It helps to speak some Spanish, but the staff are quite used to people pointing and smiling at... More
