Hola everyone, Just getting into the review thing, only my second only review, both for experiences in Jaco...
Los Amigos: Went 3 times during visit late January..early February 2013......1st visit was alone and only for a beer, very slow service, like perhaps 15 minutes for someone to ask what I want.....and there were but 3 other people in the bar/restaurant
2nd visit: With 4 of my buds, They wanted to try dinner there.....food basic, only OK, LONG wait time not only for someone to come for order but also for delivery, we had to ask 2 times (after 40 minute wait) about our meal, we were told they had a problem in the kitchen, However no one ever came to tell us. The big deal was...........I paid the bill, then waited with one of my friends while the other 3 went outside for a smoke...........total bill was perhaps $45 USD or so, incl. in the bill was a 10% tip most all the restaurants add, we were adding more no prob.....However I was waiting for my change, approx $25 USD............no one returned after I paid.....15 min...then 25 min before I flagged a guy down and told him I was still waiting for my change, he went and got our waiter who never came to table but went right to register by me.........obviously he had no idea I speak/understand spanish very well....so I overheard much of his conversation with his friend, basically he figured we were stupid gringos, Surprise! I got my change....and because of what I heard they recieved no more tip which they would have gotten. 3rd visit: My buds figured it was honest mistake before......so 4 days later about the same time in the evening we returned, same very basic meal...........its OK, no problem there....But exact same thing happened. So, I am in Jaco area often now......but never again Los Amigos............Far Far too many other restaurants to choose from. So Los Amigos.....be careful of what you have your people say in earshot of "gringos", we are all not "stupid"
