This is a must when you're visiting or as a local. The food is outstanding, loved the new fish taco's! The owners are always there, they come to say hi and make sure your food and experience is great.

I've been coming to this place for the past 8 or so years, I always get the Caliches Poky witch cost about $18 tax and service included, the waiters here are not "on top of you" they basically take your order, serve your food and give you the check, but for us that is good enough. Each time my and... More

Poki bowl at Caliche's, often imitated, never successfully. It was a quiet weekend in Jaco, so getting a table outside wasn't an issue. Food and service very good.

The cheese cake for dessert was true New York style - thick and heavy and wonderful. We were serenaded by a local guitarist during our meal which... More

Have been there a couple of times, and am always satisfied with the food. Unpretentious, good fresh food. Last time had the PadTai with shrimp and a couple of their amazing yellow fin tuna tacos. It is still a sure shot place for a great meal, without complications.

We stopped here cuz the family couldn't decide what to eat and we were starved from drive from la fortuna. Even then we didn't enjoy food. Expensive and tasteless. We were disappointed because place had such great reviews. Free wifi. Friendly staff.open área seating.. No a/c too hot in Jaco
