It is a small but very delicious sushi restaurant. It is real authentic and located right in the middle of downtown Jaco. It was mouth watering. They made a special seared salmon sushi piece and man did it melt in your mouth. It is right in the center of the night life.

Good experience - sushi was fresh and food was much better than expected! Again A/C would have been nice but thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Owner Rudy and his team are always smiling and working hard. The small yet nice restaurant is well located in downtown Jaco and offer excellent Sushi and other Japanese dishes at good prices. Open kitchen allows you to see the dishes being prepared. They also offer a variety of Japanese beer and Costa Rican crafted beers.

We went to Arigato on a Saturday night when they were busy but not crushed. We ordered three of the special rolls as soon as we got there, along with bottle beers. Then the waiter disappeared. Eventually, one of the rolls (vegetarian) appeared along with the beers. Eventually, afetr a long wait, the other two rolls were dropped on our... More

This place had fantatsic sushi and didn't break the bank. The service was excellent, the drinks were delicious and the sushi was the highlight of the meal. This place is great for people watching in the middle of downtown Jaco as it is an open restaraunt. However, this also means there is no air conditioning, which is their ONLY tiny... More

I'm a big fan of the Japanese style sushi - Mostly nigiri, clean, and simple so that the fish and rice speak for themselves. I'm a big sushi enthusiast, and LOVED my meal at Arigato. I had mostly nigiri and also tried my brother's Philly roll, which was also very good. These guys really know what they are doing. This... More

We only heard about this place after talking with locals living in Jaco. Truly glad we found out about it. Some of the best sushi I've ever had. So fresh you could tell it was all locally caught fish. The prices were fair and they even had several more common rolls for very cheap during their happy hour. If you... More

After having a horrible experience at the other sushi restaurant in Jaco a few years back, we were ambivalent about trying Arigato. Well, I must say we were very happy we did. The fish was fresh, the portions very ample and the prices VERY reasonable. The Japanese owned and staffed restaurant is as experienced as those at home. They have... More
