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!!!

Ate at Wahoos tonight and was very disappointed. The atmosphere consisted of BET videos playing obscene ghetto music and a disco light spinning on the ceiling. My wife had the Macarena crusted mahi and I had the churassco steak. A+ for plate presentation but a D for taste. My steak was over cooked vein steak that was barely cuttable. The... More

Fried calamari and seafood rice are the BOMB! Service was quick and the staff very friendly. Would definitely go back to eat here.

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
