Staff seemed a little rude. Might have been a misunderstanding or language barrier. Breakfast was great. Paper cups in a humid environment, not so much. I had to dodge the dirt in my cup of water at breakfast.

We were told about the point because they had the best fish tacos around. We go there and are immediately greeted and welcomed with open arms. Come to find out the bartender lived in Tampa as well. We returned to eat many times simply beacause of the friendly atmosphere and killer Fish Tacos!

The Point is located on the beach, literally feet from the great surf. Food is made fresh in plain sight and usually tastes great. Really good fries of the non-greasy kind. You pay a bit more for the location, but if you take your lunch with an awesome view, this is the place to go on the south end of... More

One of our favorite Jaco bar and grills. Tropical drinks and fish tacos while watching the sunset...Priceless!....Lots of locals and visiting tourist frequent this American owned restaurant. Nothing fancy, just a cool place to enjoy the beach and have good eats.

I love this bar! Friendly staff, cold beer, great margaritas, and the pulled pork tacos are delicious! They also have a grassy area out front where you can watch some beautiful sunsets and watch the surfers. When friends or family come to visit we make sure to take them here. A great place to relax and experience pura vida.

We stayed within easy walking distance of the Point while we stayed in Jaco. We often walked down for breakfast and lunch. Fun atmosphere, good, inexpensive food and a great view.

We were staying just down the street and ended up at The Point every day of our trip! The staff was very friendly and the view was unbeatable. I'm vegetarian and although the selection of vegetarian items was slim, the vegetarian tacos with black beans and rice were incredible. Great little spot!
