I don't know how to title this one. We live in Hermosa and frequent many of the restaurants. The food here is just ok. The problem begins with a purchase. My friend had purchased an eco speaker there( great product) . When I went to purchase it there it was 50% more. The next day I went went back to... More

We loved the atmosphere, there was an indoor restaurant and a private outdoor garden with tables on one side and couches and lounge chairs on the other. I would suggest coming around 9pm for drinks and the live music. We came at 8pm one night, ordered food and drinks (pineapple beer was phenomenal) and then were told they were out... More

The Dorado was prepared with a great sauce. It was extremely reasonable and with a great waitress and staff. There are only a few tables and a nice ambiance.

We stopped by for brunch and a cold beer (not the coldest but ok) and ended up ordering ceviche, and it was terrific. The service was extremely helpful and prompt (young lady). That evening we decided to try it again and ordered whole red snapper and a Jalapeno Cheddar burger. This is the only restaurant in Jaco that I have... More

Jacó is a very small town with very few dining options. We found the Green room on our second night there and I was grateful I found it as I was already craving for decent food. The Green Room has a cool vibe, a large variety of food and mostly organic which I loved, live music and very good drinks!... More

My wife and I ate at the Green Room on our recent trip to Costa Rica. The Costa Rican craft beers were excellent. This place overall had a cool vibe, and the food was fresh and well prepared. This was the best restaurant we've found in Jaco

This place has a very cool vibe. Some local surfers and ex-pats were there the night we had dinner. They had live music that night as well. Food was very good and they also have some local Costa Rican craft beers. Most of the menu items are locally sourced and really fresh. Service was excellent, our waitress was originally from...

We were 4 people to this restaurant for a breakfast. The process was slow, we got the drinks but the food didnt show and finally we decided to leave after 45 min. while didnt get our order. I must say tbat the manager was fair enough and didnt charge us for the coffee and juices.
