They had live music when we had dinner. The restaurant is serviced by three or more restaurants around to create a rich menu of food items.

I wanted something without meat so they let me have the "made to order" option and I had The BEST burrito. The traditional Costa Rican drink topped it off. Great service too.

Well, i have been around for more than 10 years now, and knew this place since. It used to be a very nice relax place with good food and service. I truly don't know what happened to them but all is gone. Food is now mediocre at best, portion small, the poky dish is a more like a bowl full... More

You can't call it spectacular, but the food is good, the drinks are strong, and the portions are generous. I've been through Jaco multiple times and I'm always sure to make a visit here.

Great atmosphere, large menu, the tuna is sooo good and very very fresh. The staff is wonderful and makes you feel like your at home. The owner Caliche is very welcoming and always makes sure you are happy. My favorite place to eat in Jaco, I can eat there 4 days in a row! Go try it, you won't be... More

I love the poke bowl and the seared tuna bowl. The black bean dip is to die for!!! It is right in the heart of Jaco and has a great vibe!

Well located right in downtown Jaco for starters. Food we had was basic Costa Rican stuff but very fresh and very tasty. Service was a bit gruff and English is lacking (so this is Costa RIca) but who cares. Worth a visit.

The food was amazing, but the margaritas tasted like tequila and water. Highly recommend the shrimp tacos! The staff was professional and attentive. My husband had the chalupa and said it was also great and a large amount of food.
