4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Decent steak, great service & atmosphere. Right downtown. Good for change of pace at the beach. Always a stop when I go to Jaco.

“Best Place to eat in Jaco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

If you want to eat the best seafood and red meat in Jaco, please, go to Parrilla...
The red anchova is amazing...the chorizo perfect!
Please, do not go to Costa Rica and eat "american food"...go for fresh food!
Pura Vida!

“Nice Atmosphere, but noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Located on the main drag of Jaco and open to the street made for a noisy dining experience. We dined in the veranda at the front of the restuarant and received very good service from Ricardo who spoke very good English. The steak I ordered was not the best I had in Costa Rica, a little tough but edible. The prices were pretty mucn in line with what I had paid at similar places throughout Costa Rica, maybe a little less, I think the steak was some where around $12-$14. Not bad for a steak.

“Horrible steak”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Made the mistake of ordering the $10 prime rib special, and it was easily one of the worst steaks I've ever tried to eat. I ordered it medium well, but it came out tough as shoe leather. On top of that, it tasted like dirty dishwater. Couldn't eat it. To their credit, it was taken off our bill.

“GREAT STEAKS!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Costa Rican meat is generally very tough! NOT here! The steaks were well seasoned and cooked as ordered. And the home-made sauces are to die for.
