Our favorite (and many others’) fish taco restaurant is closed. The owner took over Bubba’s recipe after Bubba died and we were so grateful. It seems that the new owner has run into difficulty and the place is now closed and shuttered. A BIG loss! Hopefully someone else will step in to preserve the Bubba tradition.

I used to come here for a lunch daily in February and March. But now the place has been closed down by the city for some reason. So it should be taken off TripAdvisor. I gave it one star because it is gone forever and want people to read my review. Otherwise I would have given it 4 stars

We visited Jaco for a month this winter and made this a regular stop. The beer was cold, the beach view at sunset was incredible and the fish taco was the best I've ever had. We could stroll down the beach from our condo for lunch or dinner and it never disappointed. We would recommend highly.

Friendly service and large fish tacos caused us to return several times. This is a great place to watch the sunset as the locals load up their surfboards and equipment from their lessons area.

Fast, friendly service, central location, beachside views, did I mention BEST FISH TACOS I'VE EVER HAD? Try the margaritas too. Cheap, delicious, fresh ingredients, don't miss it while in Jaco.

We enjoyed our fish tacos, and our casados. The fish is very fresh. Good value. Great atmosphere on the beach. Try it.
