Yeah...the title is right! I had the coffee/cocoa crusted tenderloin for dinner and it was so good, I asked our waitress if anyone had ever liked it so much that they ordered a second one for dessert. She had seen one customer do it and I told her that I'd be her second...ordered a second and it was just as... More

Really good food and service. When we asked our server about the wines, she referred us to another young lady who gave us great advise about their wine list. We were totally satisfied with the food and drink and the service was excellent.

Not sure about the location at first as it is in a small outdoor shopping center. It looked funky inside with a graffiti theme. We didn't have a reservation but our server Irene immediately managed to fit us at a table. It is a popular spot as many people have discovered the great food and service. My husband's coffee crusted... More

My wife and I were tired of the sodas and fast food so we went out for a nice dinner. Had amazing service, great food, and great cocktail list. Was expensive for Jaco but well worth it. Cool trendy location, full of tourists it seems. Dinner was approx 100 US for two.

Surf n turf was the special and my daughter said "It's da bomb" ,shrimp poppers were Super, coffee coca tenderloin was Great too and... More

Staff all spoke English, which made it easier as we don't speak Spanish. I had the black bean soup which was the best I have ever had, it was one of the specials so it's not there all the time. Kids meals were a good size, I also had the fish tacos and they were amazing. I would highly recommend... More

The drinks were great. There were tropical cocktails, coffee, and chocolate cocktails. They used local fresh ingredients for both drinks and food. We wanted something a little more fancier than a soda (cafe), but had Costa Rican flavors and not a touristy restaurant with international and American foods. I ordered the Lemongrass Ginger Martini, Cajun Fries (appetizer), and Infamous Coffee... More

Really exceptional. Not a hot view overlooking the parking lot off the main drag in Jaco, but you'll quickly forget about that once you start eating. The restaurant is visually interesting with its "ghetto gourmet" theme. Food prep is a bit slow, and they tell you that right up front. Not so slow as to have you looking at your... More
