Great Meal .. Get the Special

Off-season special was good. Shared appetizer, we each had filet mignon then shared bananas foster. We had not been there for several years. We had forgotten how good their filet was. And they prepare the vegetables perfectly.

I enjoyed the food at the Poseidon Hotel, I would recommend going to the upstairs bar and ordering the food and having drinks up there. You can watch games being played on their large screen at the bar.

Warm beers and wines, overcooked food and the tuna tasted very fishy. Just not worth the prices. The place was empty and the atmosphere suffered. Service was fine.

The poseidon has a mix of US favorites and Costs Rican fare. Prices are a little expensive compared to other places in the area but the food is good, colonies/USD/credit cards are accepted and portions are large. I did not have a bad meal here and I returned more than once.

The food and service at the hotel poseidon is quite good, the service is perfect, and the bartenders are courteous, fun, and provide excellent service. Not so much for the hotel though. I stayed there, and did not like it at all. Will recommend the restaurant, but do not recommend the hotel.

This restaurant, in my opinion, is the best one we ate at while in Jaco. The fish was fresh, the filet mignon was excellent and the service was good. All of my dining mates agreed that this indeed is a place not to be missed while in Jaco.

The Poseidon is a quaint full service hotel and restaurant with a great sunday brunch special of eggs benedict with a small mimosa. It is very close to the beach too but also has a nice pool for the guests.
