Great nightly specials

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... read more

This is my favorite restaurant in Jaco. It's a tiny little outdoor spot with only a few tables but their food is great price is less than $10 and they even make the best pineapple juice fresh right in front of you. The service is super nice and very accommodating. I think we ate there at least once a day... More

We carried some fresh tuna and mahi we had caught 2 days before over to this restaurant early afternoon for them to cook up along with two sides and make reservations for 9 people at 7pm. (Common for restaurants to cook your own fish). The meal was terrible. The tuna was well done not seared as we had ordered. The... More

I had both Mahi Mahi filets here and liked the Caribbean style better. Good price too for these dishes. Fish and the mashers were excellent, the vegetables tasted like out of a can. Nevertheless a good choice in Jaco.

Had pecan crusted fish which tasted fresh and was nicely prepared. I think everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. Restaurant is located in the middle of town and was somewhat quiet.

We stopped for a $1.00 Margarita that was prominently displayed at the street entrance. The waiter asked if we wanted "frozen" margaritas & appetizers with our drink. We explained that we had already eaten at a nearby soda but wanted the menu to decide about a return for dinner in the next day. When we were presented with a bill... More

The "typical" breakfast was very good and the prices were great, about $5 for a generous amount of food and coffee.

We stopped here on the way out of town. It was a typical open air sports bar but what really made the experience was the Chicken nachos. The chips were freshly made and were not like normal chips. we will certainly eat nachos here again!!!
