Paso Del Tigre - Rancho Santa Ana

as it has been recommended on this forum several times as one of Jaco's best kept secret places to eat

Any one who was a fan of the classic Costa Rica Chicharronera restaurant

"El Paso Del TIgre"

will be happy to know that the new " Rancho Santa Ana" restaurant

has just opened on the municipalidad road across the street from Morgan's cove hotel/ casino.

It is owned and operated by the family who was partners in the former "Paso", (who also have another restaurant in mataplatano), featuring essentially the same menu and recipes in a surprisingly very nicely constructed Costa Rican rustico style open air "rancho" restaurant. much nicer than any soda or the old "Paso Del Tigre"

I tried bocas of chicharrone's, (fried pork), soap mariscos in leche (milked based seafood soup), and callamares al aljillo ( garlic squids & rice) and some type of blackberry desert pastry (awesome) last night and everything was right on key.

I used to eat at paso del tigre on a regular basis, and highly recommend Rancho Santa Ana to anyone who want to experience some delicious, classic costa rican cuisine, wide selection of dishes, and very reasonably priced

We were there yesterday for lunch : ) Totally agree, some of the best authentic CR food! They have a regular and boca menu too. If you are a bit timid to try some authentic food, get several bocas at a very reasonable price and find your favorite. Nice post alligood as I know several on this forum were awaiting the news. It was one of our favorite places too and well worth waiting for the reopen.

Have to agree that this is a great Costa Rican typical food restaurant. Good prices on food and beverage and really nice atmosphere. They did a great job with the newly constructed location.
