“Best Place in Jaco for Good Cheap Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is where the local eat! Because it is great local cuisine at a great price. No frills breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great local food with a small price tag. Open air, picknic type heavy wooden tables and chairs, you come as you are and you will fit right in. When you find the place in town the locals eat you know its good and not expensive.

“Best food in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

A buffet-style restaurant, favored by locals as well as tourists, it offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. When I was living in Jaco, I ate there almost every day. Service is great and a good choice of food along with huge plates. For just 5 dollars!!
