Tasty Costa Rican restaurant

The food is better than the atmosphere. Mostly an older (retired) crowd with a few locals mixed in. The restaurant needed more staff as there were only two waitresses and both were manning the bar. The food was good and decently priced ($6 for casado) and since it was not far from our hotel and an... read more

Incredible food. Everything we had was good. The chicken nachos were especially tasty. The staff was friendly and really well priced.

Took some friends to Wahoo. In the past the food was normally very good but this time my Tuna steak that I asked to be seared but rare was well done. my friend that got Mahi had the same issue of a shoe leather piece of fish. only my wife's pasta was any good. Our waitress rarely came by and... More

I had eaten at Wahoo's before but did not have a chance on my last trip. The food was good, The bar was under construction. I did see the new bar before I left. I think it is nice box shape with sitting all around. It is under new management also.

My favorite place in Jaco. You can get great local meals for under $7 and the serving sizes are huge. The service is wonderful. Get a fresh glass of pineapple juice for $1. I've been eating here for years now and never disappointed.

Food was not memorable, but the price was. Ordered a fajita, the chicken was decent, but the rest of the meal was disappointing and not filling. Went to a small cheeseburger place after and got a burger for 1/4 of the the cost(it was much better).

This place was just ok for dinner. I personally would not go back unless it was to try breakfast. Steak was stringy ( I know CR is not known for steak), cheese pasta was good, and rice with shrimp was slightly better than average. For the price, I would go elsewhere.

My husband and I took advantage of one of their specials which was dinner and a drink for two people for about $20. It is not a big place but we were seated right away. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the food and about what to do while visiting Jaco CR. The food was very good. We recommend this... More
