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.

This is a regular stop of mine and I suppose I have been selfish by not sharing this information before. The fish and chips are excellent topped with malt vinegar and tartar sauce!! Stop in the Sky Lounge and enjoy the game, the a/c and a great meal!!

We went to the Poseidon for lunch and it was great! Food and drinks (fruit smoothy) were very good. We liked it so much we wanted to come back for dinner. Dinner was not as good. My wife got chicken and it was raw in the middle. And when we got the bill we were overcharged. They claimed they couldn't... More

1st of all, thanks so much for your feedback, this is the only way we can continue to improve our restaurant. We are very sorry for the miss priced chicken entree. I, personally, changed the menu items in our POS and on the Menu, and take responsibility for the pricing error. I missed the chicken dish. I corrected the price,... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Quaint little restaurant just off the Main Street. Big omelettes with potatoes and toast, interesting (but tasty) take on huevos rancheros, plus the American breakfast was basic but good and filling. Unlimited coffee. Daily specials too!

The Tuna was unbelievable and I was able to see her prepare it. Cindy and Gaby who work there was very friendly and always helpful even if I only came in for a glass of wine. I really recommend you try here when you visit Jaco as the ambiance and the meal are worth it.
