Description: We are a laid back casual artisan restaurant in the heart of Jaco Beach. We serve upscale comfort, and gourmet food without all the fuss of fine dining. We work with several organic farms, and artisan food producers in our area and throughout the country. We combine these local flavors with international cooking techniques to bring you a truly unique dining experience. Everything we serve at Green Room is made fresh with the best ingredients our country has to offer! Sometimes it takes a little longer, but we hope that if you have taken the time to join us you'll appreciate having your food prepared to order. If you're used to McDonald's and Subway maybe we aren't for you :-) So if you're in Jaco, come by...relax and enjoy some great food in our laid back dinning room or in the garden....stay for some live music, bar games, or just to chat! We have live music every Friday with local and visiting musicians....as well as specials every day, and evening. We serve brunch, lunch, and dinner six days a week for dine-in, take out, or delivery...and also have a full bar and weekly artisan cocktail specials. So if you want a break from the usual Jaco tourist traps, come by for a visit...hope to see you soon, PURA VIDA!

I stopped in randomly and was very pleasantly surprised my the very relaxed and refreshing setting. The food was better than I was expecting and the service was very friendly. Fresh and tasty. Definitely recommend despite the fact that it's priced for tourists. I will be back.

Large menu . Order Fish & Chips. When I asked for tarter sauce. the reply was the cook doesn't like Mayo. I said most people who order fish & chips expect tartar sauce. The reply was it's not native to Costa Rica. As I looked at my plate with this cup of ketchup, I reply ketchup isn't either. As a... More

We dropped into Jaco for lunch on the way to Dominical, and, after being disappointed by the menus at several restaurants along the beach, we stumbled upon Green Room. This was, by far, the best place we could have ever hoped for. Bright, clean, inviting place with an amazing menu full of fresh, made-to-order dishes, with most of their ingredients... More

Don't you love it when you stop by a place on a whim and it feels like you stepped into a magical oasis? The entrance off the Main Street is very very small, it's so easy to miss. It had a small white board that advertised "craft beer" which got our attention. So we walked through a hallway which we... More

The atmosphere of this place is lovely. The actual restaurant is hidden behind the entrance which features swings and some fun artwork. I loved the openness of the restaurant and the intricate details. As for the food and drinks, I had the spicy guanabana which was a treat. My boyfriend and I both ordered the mahi soft tacos. They were... More

When we first got here, the nonchalant server told us all of the things they were out of for drinks (limoncello, blackberries, blueberries, and more) - almost everything we wanted. Later on during our dining experience, the owner arrived at the restaurant, was told about the shortages (by someone in our party) and went to the bar to find everything... More

Food is beyond incredible. A new level of fresh and flavor. Anything from omelets to sandwiches made with homemade bread, fresh caught seafood, and next level burgers. Craft beer from all over the world. Hand made drinks with fresh ingredients. Even their water is infused with cucumber, lime, basil, and oranges. Atmosphere has a very local feel and the staff...

Ambiance is very nice. Food is delicious. The bartender was very knowledgable on all the food items as well as the beers. Local hot sauces served with the meals are awesome
