After stumbling into this place by accident we ended up having a dinner here every night. It's located a bit off the main touristy area which makes it much less popular, but with only a handful of tables, this actually worked well for us. This is a small restaurant/bar with a cook working directly behind the counter, very good quality... More

This is small place who should have appreciated such a group. However, things went downhill very quickly. I had a water with me & the waitress/owner? promptly said - don't bring your own... More

Had everything on the menu, each one is delicious and distinct. Hostess Leslie is there to please and service is exceptional. Great spot in the heart of Jaco.

Being vegan I often have trouble finding reasonable food that meets my standards, especially in costa rica, but this place is the place if you are vegan. Good options and low oil and salt! Leslie is super cool and helpful with finding something off the menu. Be sure to stop in here before leaving jaco!

Wok was awesome. The owner was friendly and outgoing and the food was reasonably priced. I recommend the Camarones Palau (probably misspelled) Beef Rendang also very smooth and amazing. Go there.

The food was great and I'm so glad they offer the out because when we were feeling lazy after a day of surfing, ordering in was the right way to go!
