Unless Jade Mar moved to a new location and has not yet updated its website or signage in the (small) village, it is no longer in business. We walked right up to the building and it has clearly not been used for quite some time.

I was here years ago and said I would not go back but when I heard it has new ownership I decided to give it a try again. I'm glad I did. The new owner and staff are friendly. Their food and service have improved a lot. I would go back there for sure.

Honestly, the food is pretty average, but this is still a great place to stop by for a beer, a bit of TV, and the excellent WiFi connection. It is the best WiFi we found in Drake Bay. They also let us take over one of the tv's to watch a little American football - so nice!

I had the ceviche and my husband had the chicken casado. His was excellent but mine was ok. The fish was absolutely fresh but the seasoning was way too much lime. No balance. Service was very good and we enjoyed a glass of wine each.

Large, spacious restaurant with a wide-ranging menu. Definitely something for everyone on there and the bar is VERY well-stocked! There wasn't much atmosphere in the restaurant when we were there (as it was so big and this was during the green season) and the food was ok - my food tasted a bit strange (chicken cordon bleu) but edible, but...

My wife and I ventured to drive to Drake Bay during the rainy season in our recent vacation to Costa Rica. After sorting out the trail that takes you to Drake Bay, which I do not recommend to take during the rainy season unless you really love adventure, we were happy to find Jade Mar as we enjoyed an awesome...

A very good place to get awesome food! We had our best ceviches there (try the mixed one!) and suddenly it became our favorite food-place in Drake Bay! You definitely have to go there. Very friendly owner, who's always trying to make his guests the happiest as they can get :-)

Jade Mar was our favorite restaurant during our 2 week stay in Costa Rica. The ceviche was the best I've ever had, and the banana daiquiri is a must try! Claudio, the owner, is such an amazing host and so fun to get to know. We really felt like we had a friend there.

We were lucky enough to watch a Costa Rican futbol game when we visited. The staff was very friendly the food was very good and the environment was very energetic. Of course, the energy was largely due to the game but Jade Mar created a wonderful setting. It's located in the center of town and the locals seemed to be... More
