All the past reviews were right on. The food and service was great. Had the tuna tower, a must have. I had the mahi as well, some of the best ever had. GO. NOW. !

After being recommended by a few of the locals I decided to check this place out. Please do not waste your money at this place. The hostess (who is also the owner) is rude, lacks customer service and professionalism. She has ZERO customer services skills. The atmosphere does not match the description at all. The food was not worth the... More

I would have to say that no one could pay me to eat at this restaurant ever again! The hostess was extremely rude and disrespectful! I have never been spoken to the way this so called woman spoke to me and my party. She told us we could sit on the floor. She was direspectful and defensive for no reason.... More

Coco, I, the owner and hostess on the evening you dined, would never suggest anyone sit on the floor in our restaurant. As a business owner in the hospitality industry, you are sometimes faced with making difficult decisions to ensure a positive experience for all of your customers. The night you dined with us two different tables that were seated... More

Fun little place, staff are pleasant (until you ask for something they'd rather not do). Coffee coated steak is amazing. Tuna stack appetizer is very good and enough for two people. Nice selection of wine (we had Apothic). The Elvis dessert is rich and enough for at least two.

The location is a little odd, but everything else made up for that. This is a small restaurant that seems out of place with the shops around it, and is easy to miss if your not looking for it. Based on reviews, we made sure to stop here while in Jaco and were happy we did. The service was friendly,... More

This restaurant has a funky vibe and a great atmosphere. I LOVE the tuna tower and the coffee coco crusted steak is a must! I had the filet salad and it was so good! We come here every time we are in Costa Rica and it never disappoints!

The food is a bit pricey, but it's worth it! And the mojitos are to die for. Seafood is fresh and has amazing flavor.

I will start by saying this place comes highly recommended by locals and visitors so we had to go. We asked our front gate guy at the condo to call and make a reservation which it sounded like he did but it was in Spanish so he may have called the wrong place. With that said, we arrived for our...
