If you are in Jaco do not pass this place up. What a creative menu. The staff here is great and the food is even better. I don't really ever write reviews but in this case I am happy to. A must have in Jaco.

The food was so amazing. Each dish was a unique blend of flavors I had never experienced. It may have been the best meal I have ever had...really!

I recently dined here on a friend's recommendation. The restaurant is not visible from the main road which is perhaps why I had previously missed it. It's location allows it to escape from the seedy vibe of Jaco's main drag as it is ensconced in a small commercial center adjacent to Kentucky Fried Chicken. The theme is "graffiti urban" (surprise... More

Everything we heave ordered was very good: mahi fish, ribs or cacao beef steak. The service, performed by American waitress also faultless. Only one serious drawback - ugly interior, with dark light, ordinary tables and chairs, pretentious decoration. Anyway, the good food wins.

The menu is well priced and varied enough for most tastes, the atmosphere is perfect for either a romantic dinner or just to hang out with friends, the service is top shelf and the... More

This place is my favorite in Jaco for dinner. Everything is worth trying and good. The coffee marinated steak will stay in your memory for a long time.

Absolutely delicious food. The shrimp macaroni and cheese was perhaps the best we have ever had. My only complaint on the steak was that it was too small. :) Fun, funky atmosphere. Nice, attentive staff.
