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!

We love that they have vegetarian options and craft beer so we keep going back trying to support this restaurant, but we just keep getting more and more disappointed. The first time we went, our server forgot out appetizer and just brought out the meal. We told her it wasn't an issue, just forget about the appetizer. Food was okay,... More

Nice place, feels like a little oasis in the middle of the busy town with its green garden and the few white tables in the restaurant itself. We really enjoyed the dinner (burger and pasta). Drinks were fine as well. Since it was a friday night we could also enjoy listening to a local band. Only two things that could... More

Had the eggs benedict it was different and delicious, fresh squeezed orange and french pressed coffee. Sitting inside was cool and comfortable with fresh flowers on each table. My server Greg,(?) was fun and friendly.

Finding quality dining in Jaco can be hit and miss. The variety of tourists and the seasonal nature make it a tough business to be in. The Green Room is a welcome addition to Jaco. The menu is interesting and well executed. The service is prompt and capable. We look forward to going back!

Great food, great atmosphere. They have done a great job with the menu and the bar. The atmosphere at night is amazing with live music and an outdoor atmosphere.

How this place is not the the best restaurant in Jaco amazes me. My wife and I are always informed restaurant go-ers reading dozens reviews before choosing a place. All of the reviews here are spot on, if anything, the reviews under call the care the Green Room takes in creating an organic, sustainable, and creative menu at an insanely... More

When in the Jaco, Costa Rica area, we ate at a number of restaurants, and the Green Room was our favorite! The food was delicious, the service friendly, and the atmosphere amazing. We would highly recommend this place, especially if you only have one opportunity to eat in Jaco as you are passing through, or if staying in the area.... More

This is the place for high end, all natural, made to order breakfast. Good selection of natural fruits, juices, and other healthier choices. Excellent service.
