My husband and I started with the guacamole, chips and salsa and each had a fish taco. The fish taco was the best tasting in Jaco and the guacamole was the tastiest with their homemade chips and salsa. We also had the shrimp fajitas - delicious and a large portion! Ask for their homemade hot sauce - awesome!! Fish monger... More

Had dinner and a few bottles of wine with friends here. Started with the grilled avocado and all I can say is, I wish I had begged the owners for the recipe. Absolutely delicious! I love avocado and we have an abundance of them in California, this has to be as tasty as any I have ever eaten before. I... More

Wahoo's is a wonderful restaurant. A great place for dinner with family or friends. Great food, comfortable friendly atmosphere. A really great breakfast on weekends. Every time I would have fish tacos for an afternoon snack I would start thinking about the next time I would come and have them again. Very attentive staff. Gloriana was so welcoming and hospitable.... More

Wahoo is a local owned restaurant run by 3 sisters. If you decide to go you will be treated to some sisterly love and attention. We loved the appetizer selections as much or more than the entrees(which were quite good as well). The first experience with a group of 10 was good enough that we went back the second week... More

Wahoos greatly exceeded my expectations. As you walk in, it may seem to be typical of many of the bars up and down the main tourist area in Jaco. It is a little north of the main restaurant area, but is a very pleasant couple of minutes walk (Jaco is not very big). We went to Wahoos on our first... More

Wahoos is on the north side of the strip which makes it easy to park if driving. Good food and decent pricing. Owners are really nice and I have always enjoyed a meal here!

The people here make you feel welcome. The restaurant is a little north of the busiest stretch of the main street in Jaco, but worth finding. Nightly specials include fresh caught fish. My personal favorite on the menu is the "tuna tower". Ahi (yellowfin tuna) fresh and a taste delight. the fish tacos were mahi-mahi (dorado) and delicious also.

The food was overcooked and atmosphere was essentially a garage on the street. Service was okay and waitstaff did the best they could.
