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!

Nice Late Dinner with Music

We enjoyed our dinner here. The inside was full so we sat outside which was a better decision because we could have conversation and listen to music and enjoy our dinner. The quac and chips are fantastic here!

You can come to CR and eat real "clean food" here. It's not all meats and pizza and chicken fingers. This place is fantastic. It's like going to dinner at Whole Foods each night.

If you love coffee please make sure to order some! Everything we ordered at this place was AMAZING! I don't think you can go wrong with anything you order. Beyond that the decor is colorful and enjoyable.

All of the people who work here are wonderful including the owner, Stefan, and Allison. There are always fun events going on like beer tastings and surf parties. The food is excellent. The drinks are delicious and unique. It's great for anything from breakfast or an evening out with friends. Must try guacamole. Also lots of vegan options!

Wandering through Jaco, we found ourselves hungry. The Green Room had a sign out front with specials that sounded good, so we wandered on in. They seated us at an awesome outdoor table, had live music, and a great craft beer selection. The food was good, calamari wasn't great, but everything else was delicious.

Interesting and eclectic atmosphere, several beers beyond Imperial, good selection for CR. The service was terrible and the food was pretty good. Pricing not bad.

My wife and I just went for a drink in our way to another restaurant for dinner. It was happy hour so maybe that was the problem, but we orders a couple drinks and I honestly don't know if there was even any booze in either drink. I had the ginger mojito, I forget what my wife had.

The Green Room is more then just good food! It is a wonderful dining experience! Great bohemian feel, cafe, chillax atmosphere. Bar with many local artesian craft beers to choose from, art gallery area as well. Live music at times. An amazing Jaco experience, don't forget to visit The Green Room when you are visiting Jaco!
