Excellent Yellow Fin Tuna

Had a great dinner here on Fat Tuesday! There seared tuna was extremely generous in size and flavor. The tuna was blackened perfectly and mouth watering. It came with mashed, vegetables and was one of the best meals I have had in awhile.

We dine at the Poseidon as much as possible when in Jaco. The cook has been there for years and she can cook a steak like nobody else! They have a great special of two dinners for $35. Order the Asian salad and a filet or tuna and you will not be disappointed. They also have a reasonable wine list... More

Banged up from a big night on the town? Soak up some that Flor de Cana with there Eggs Benedict. Local buddy recommended this place and they hooked it up. Unlimited coffee to get things going. Ended up here several mornings. Headed back to CR in a month, will be back here for sure. Gonna try dinner next time.

I come here for good simple food. The price is right and the quality and service are here! Good for breakfast lunch and dinner. After your meal take a walk on the beach!

When we booked our fishing excursion, we asked which restaurants would cook our fish for us. Poseidon was the one we tried and they were fantastic. They gave us around 30% off a regular dish and severed our fish two ways - herbed and grilled, and fried. It came with grilled vegetables, rice and mashed potatoes. They did a great... More

We have eaten here twice, once for dinner and once for breakfast. For dinner, I had the grilled tuna, which was done exactly the way I ordered it and was accompanied by a generous portion of veggies and rice. My husband and I had the special for two which gave us each a main course, as well as a starter... More

We stopped by this restaurant on our second to last night in Costa Rica, and we had a lovely dinner. My companions had the mahi mahi and I had the chicken breast, and the portions were large and filling. The mains came with vegetables, mashed potatoes and basmati rice and the meat and fish portions were quite large. Everything was... More

Nice setting with open kitchen layout but the food was average to above average, all three times that I tried this place. Mostly tourists, as are most finer dining places in Jaco.
