We rented a house for a week and this place is right at the beach at the end of our lane! What unbelievable luck! So far we are 3 visits for 4 days, and my son has had the shrimp tacos every time! It is a bar and restaurant and it sits right on the beach. If you sit at... More

The shrimp taco was delicious. Quite a bit bigger than many other Tico tacos I've had in CR. The taco comes a bit bare, but there is an extensive salad bar with veggies and sauces that can be added or eaten on the side. Comfortable restaurant and the bar top seating with one side of swings is pretty fun. The... More

This place is amazing! Great menu and fresh healthy food. No matter what you get or what time of day, Tacobar never fails. I eat here at least 3 times a week, usually more.

This place came highly recommended by our local driver. Great variety for such a small place. food was all excellent and service was great. We had lunch and then walked across the street to Pops ice creme shop and then a very short walk to the beach. We will definitely go back when we're in the area.

I loved loved loved this place when I was staying in Jaco(earlier than Jan 2014 however the option wasn't available)! It was consistently good and always fresh, plus their chocolate brownies are divine!

Dining at Tacobar is an experience by itself. Besides the multiple sitting options you have (hanging chairs, normal tables, etc.), they try to make this a unique dining experience. The food is fresh and good, and what makes it better is not only the tacos, but the side dishes you get at the salad bar. My family liked this place,... More

My boyfriend stopped here on our way back to our hotel, because they have signs all over the roads. We had several different types of fish tacos and one calamari taco. The calamari was very fresh, but the freshness of the other fishes were a little questionable. They probably could have done a better job imparting some flavor in their... More

The Tacobar is a nice selfservice restaurant with a great style: you can actually sit in swings while eating! ;-) I had the chicken taco and one was enough for me because you can add as much salad from the salad bar as you like. But if meat is important you should order more than one taco. The salads were... More
