Order 1,2,3 tacos of your meat of choice (fish, chicken, or beef) or other entrees. Get a number, wait for tacos, then visit the taco toppings bar. Spicy relishes, salad ingredients, potatoes, coconut rice... Unlimited visits to toppings bar! Anyway, our family of four was hungry, the TacoBar had good ambience and good food so this was a good match!

Delicious, I went twice! Tuna, salmon, mahi mahi, and beef tacos excellent! Outside and all you can eat bar. It's smaller but great atmosphere and delicious food. The bar has salads, potatoes, fixings and much more. I would have liked some cheese as a topper but it was so good it didn't matter. Must visit this place if you are... More

Jewel of Jaco Beach. Fish is sooo fresh. You dress your own tacos from salad bar. The shrimp tacos were our favorite. Kids sat in swings to eat. All 5 people were very happy with their lunch. The atmosphere is from a Jimmy Buffet song.

We stopped by Tacobar for their $3 breakfasts. We had a egg taco and were surprised to see that it had an egg, fresh green beans, and carrots. It was delicious. It also had a lettuce salad with it. Everymorning they offer a different option for $3. Their waffles and pancakes were very good also. We ate their for dinner... More

The qaulity of the protein on the tacos they give you are okay, but they don't dress them for you, and then you get like this salad bar fillers. It got us full and the food was okay, we were just looking for something more tasty out the gate

On this trip to Jaco beach I visited the taco bar two times. Both times I had the chicken teriyaki burrito. It was delicious as usual! I recommend a side of avocado and the fresh salsa from the salad bar. Once you ordered your main item it will be delivered to your table at that point you can go to... More

Huge range of options, well presented and I like the salad bar concept - plenty of great options to fill up your tacos. The atmosphere is nice and they have a good range of indoor and outdoor seating options. The only beers they have available are Corona and Heineken, both of which are overpriced. This is a pity given Costa... More

My 15 year old daughter and I were in Jaco for a week in March. We had breakfast and dinner several time at Tacobar because the food is good and prices reasonable. You can get a great pancake breakfast for $3USD which includes 3 pancakes and fresh fruit side. This was our favorite place to start the day after surfing... More
