Very Good Japanese food in jaco

I had the house salad and sushi. The salad had a dressing that was the best I have every eaten; I knew right away why there were so many people were eating here when I walked by. The sushi plate was a combination of various kinds of sushi and was very good.

Excellent prices with happy hour specials. It can get really busy so be prepared to wait a little bit. Try their special rolls they're very good. Lively atmosphere. Very fresh sushi.

One of the best japanese restaurants I've been in Costa Rica! Great service, and we loved to sit at the bar and watched the food being prepared!

Rudy and his staff delivers again. Quiet weekend (rain and Tico holiday), so getting my favorite table wasn't an issue. The food as usual is superb, as was the service.

As I am living in Jaco, I had time to try most of the places with a great rating in Jaco. Arigato just blew my mind. Prices are low ($5 for 8 makis and $7 for yakitoris) and they organize specials almost every night. The food quality is outstanding. As good as any great japanese restaurant in NYC. We went... More

I think this place must have improved because many of the issues mentioned in older ratings did not exist for us. The fish was probably the freshest I have eaten - pretty sure most of it was swimming this morning. The host and waiter did a great job of making recommendations and we really enjoyed our dinner. Prices were much... More

we went to celebrate my daughter´s birthday and really enjoy the food and the environment. The sushi was professionally prepared and delicious. There in fact were some innovations. Tried the calamari and love them as well.

I spent 9 days in the area and ate at Arigato 3 times as it was so good. The sushi is very fresh and better than i had elsewhere in town and the noodles made for an outstanding meal

We were visiting Jaco for the day and we're hungry for dinner. Walked to Tsunami sushi,but, left after seeing the prices! Walked by Arigato and it seemed there was a steady flow of people inside. Sat at the sushi counter and watched the chef make our food! Now we were converting $1 US dollar= $ 500 colones. We ordered: California... More
