Absolutely delish!! It is also very affordable and the portions are good sized. It's an open air dining so no a/c but that was fine. The food is very similar to the local food from my country and we loved it.

If you get a little sticker shock eating at the restaurants along Pastor Diaz, take some advice and follow the locals to the side street (Calle Alice?) and fill your plate with good local cuisine (Plate of the Day) for approx. 6 bucks.

Tipico lunch in Jaco. If you are wanting to see what the locals eat head here for lunch. Some of the best around. Get there before 12 or after 1. The line is long that hour. No frills, no thrills, just good down to earth ears...

TOURISTS: You *must* try this! Big plate of your choice of numerous offerings, cafeteria style for around $5 US! "Eat in" in a open, spotless dining room 1/2 block from the beach or "to go". Beef, pork, fish, chicken - some with sauces. Large variety of well seasoned identifiable and some 'new to me' vegetables. Super friendly staff. Spanish not... More
