Taco Bar has a nice simple concept, choose from a small menu, include salad bar or not, pay before hand, and off you go… Get your salad from the bar and sit down.. The waiters then bring your drink and your fish tacos.. The food is fresh and tasty and if you're more hungry, get yourself more from the salad... More

Stopped there for a lunch - their signature dish, as name shows, are Tacos. There is an option of ordering 1, 2 or 3 tacos with different ingredients, including fish, prawns, calamari, and beef. Ingredients can be either grilled or fried, made spicy or not. At the end of the process one receives a plate with tortillas and ordered ingredients,... More

We come here every year because they offer a nice $3 breakfast, American or Tico. We also stop here to get Hummus to go since our casa doesn't have the kitchen equipment to make my own. This year.... the have wine and soft cocktails, although we always have our Coors Cooler with us; it's nice to be able to have... More

Cheap and tasty breakfast, but also great lunches and dinners. Try the lemonade for a refreshing draught and load up your salad plate to accompany your taco or burrito.

Great tacos with your choice of various meat choice (beef, chicken, pork) and various seafood choices (shrimp,squid, and various fish) It had a great salad bar that you can fill up on while they are making your tacos.

Food here is a bit expensive, but if you take on the salad bar (all you can eat), then you can easily make it well worth it. My nephew came with me and really enjoyed the swings you could sit on outside while eating. Very casual, but a funky, hip atmosphere with very fresh food! If you like fish tacos....... More

I might have eaten here everyday for breakfast. They have a $3 breakfast special daily. I stayed with two items, the Omelette Crunch and the eggs with rice and beans. Not only were the entrees perfect but the salads and side that came with them were fresh and the tomatoes are still something we're raving about. Now I need to... More

Food was average and overpriced. Service was average. My kids loved the swings. I was expecting more, but was not satisfied. Food in Costa Rica is delicious, but this was not up to par.

We all had fish taco's and two drinks and was $90. The food was great, and like to others state, you order at the window and go find a seat. The swings around the bar look kind of cool, but they were all full. They come serve you and then you go up and get all the condiments you want... More

Interesting place. Fast food Costa Rica style. In downtown Jaco, a taco bar.... you stand in line, order you taco, pick your meat, your quantity, your preferred style (fried, grilled, etc.). They have beer and softdrinks as well. You pay and get a number, you go to your table, all outside. There is a bar like counter with fun swings... More
