Fun bar right on the beach!

The Point bar has not only the best margaritas in town but has a memorable view of sandy Jaco beach and the Pacific. The staff is very friendly and gave us a ton of places to visit while in Jaco. Great food and great location. We did not stay in the connected hotel, but heard from guests and locals... read more

This place has become one of my favorites! The staff is so wonderful, they treat you like family. The breakfast tacos and mango smoothie are a must do for breakfast, and the fish tacos for lunch or dinner!!

Great bar/restaurant on the beach. Bar counter and stools facing the ocean. Food is on the pricier side for what it is (plates include casado, quesadillas, tacos, burgers in the $6-12 range. Mixed drinks $6+, beers $2 at happy hour), but who cares when you're taking in the sunset over the water?

Pancakes that reminisce of banana bread spices, real bacon and excellent farmer sausage patties, and enough real hash browns to blend two perfectly fried eggs into. And artisan toast (not white bread!) already buttered. And better than resorts nearby coffee. Lady that looks like a mother figure smiling away right there concocting meals.

We visited earlier this year and my complaint back then was that the staff was not very friendly. (I also felt that there were a lot of fake reviews but I've come around to understand that the TA reader needs to be smart about what they read....) Anyway, the staff was nicer this time around. They went out of their... More

If you want to have a drink right at the south end of Jaco Beach, this is a good spot. We didn't eat there and found the drinks expensive. Finding our way back to Jaco on foot was an adventure and we ended up cutting through Captain Morgan's which looked okay.

We were at Mar Arena and just steps away but we did not need to look any further for the best food service and the nicest staff in Costa Rica. Thanks to them for a great vacation experience.

Sat down at the bar top facing the beach. The sand is 5 feet from you. Music in the background and tacos in front of me. Service was excellent and so was the food. Tried the fish tacos and pulled pork. I'd advise you do the same!

We have been there several times for breakfast to get a change of scenery from our resort. Beautiful ocean front breakfast bar, freshly squeezed orange juice, great coffee. I had French toast with syrup, very yummy and filling. Another day I had the fruit bowl with granola and yogurt (minus the yogurt because I am afraid to try dairy products... More
