Definitely do the fish tacos

I got a friend fish taco (forget which fish they had that day), bbq chicken, and the cocunut shrimp - wish I had gotten three fish because they were delish and the others just ok. Prices were good for how great the atmosphere is and where it is in Jaco, and they have an unlimited salad bar that... read more

We enjoyed Tacobar so much that we ate there 3 times for dinner during our vacation!!! It is a "walk-up and order" type of restaurant. They offer so many choices to choose from as far as what you want (tacos, burrito, a plate, etc.), what kind of protein (type of fish, beef, chicken, hummus, etc.), how you want it cooked... More

This is the only Tacobar that I will eat at. I live in Santa Ana and was so happy when they opened one on this side of town. Boy was I disappointed. The one in Jaco is simply the best. Their food is always fresh, the salad bar is amazing, and the service great. If you're in the mood for... More

Our first meal here was the incredibly inexpensive but hearty breakfasts. We came back for fish tacos for lunch and again for dinner and always found our fish to be tasty, not overdone and plentiful. Having the fixin's bar was nice so we could all try different toppings and sauces. Fun place to eat, and who can't just love eating... More

The food is very good but the service, could use some upgrading. The people were friendly and kind but they have you order first at the counter and then they give you a number. Well, that doesn't seem to work well. There were people who were well ahead of me and waiting longer but the people ordering after me were... More

At one time this place was a fresh take on the Jaco food scene.While no longer a juvenile I still like to order the breakfast with a guanabana smoothie.Costa Rica is outrageously expensive ,yes stay away from gringo restaurants as a rule of thumb,and breakfast can break the bank if it is not included.Here French toast is a value,,for some...
