“You will not regret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We were thinking about ordering steaks but the waitress recommended the tuna because it was that mornings catch, so perfectly fresh. So we both ordered it (rare,as she asked) and it was the best tuna we ever had in a restaurant! Beautiful! Service was perfect and the place is very clean. Not overpriced! We had a great time!

“Lunch and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

We had dinner here first and made a return trip for lunch because we loved it so. The family that runs it is so very nice and hospitable and the food was wonderful. Just a wonderful experience for us all.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

Everything we had was great! I had the calimari and the chocolate brownie which was great! Our server who was the restaurant's owner daughter was more than accommodating! We also had a very good cabernet which is sometimes difficult to find in jaco. Definitely try it!!

“Outstanding fish tacos, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I've lived in Texas - the land of Tex-Mex food - for over a dozen years, and I must say that the best fish taco I've ever had was at Wahoo's in Jaco Beach. The fish was perfectly seasoned and cooked, and it had a slaw-type dressing that complemented it perfectly. The owner brought out a bottle of her house-made hot sauce, and the flavor was amazing. (I tried to pry the recipe out of her, but to no avail.)

Other restaurants in Jaco serve fish tacos, and we did try one other place, just for comparison purposes (seriously). Wahoo's was the winner, hands down.

“Great view but just average food. Great place for drinks!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

We were walking on the beach and saw this place. Fun atmosphere and right on the beach. Great for drinks, but the food is just average. Normal bar food!

Not the end of the world if you missed this place.
