“Best in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I traveled to Costa Rica with my family and boyfriend and read reviews on trip advisor for wahoos and their amazing fish tacos. we tried it and everything there was AMAZING!! Chef Todd is from the states and was unbelievable. The family that owns the restaurant are very hospitable and made us feel like we were dining in their own home. Ramsey was creative and inventive with his dishes and came out to meet the dining patrons at every meal. He sat down with us to chat about local destinations and attractions. They also hooked us up with a deep sea fisherman who took us out for the day. After we caught 10 fish, from grouper to drunk fish, we brought it back where Chef Todd Ramsey made us our own special 3 course meal. The happy hour is fantastic including 2 for 1 strong drinks and their famous delicious fish tacos. We seriously went here EVERY day after we found it!!! Dont miss it.

“Service made us feel like family, and WHAT a talented chef!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

My boyfriend and I went fishing earlier in the day and caught a beautiful Dorado. We asked the captain where we should get it prepared, and he just nodded and said...Wahoos. So we stopped by with half of the portion of fish we kept and said we would love 3 dishes, how much? $10 per dish style, they said.

First they brought out macadamia encrusted fish with delicious veggies...to die for! Each dish after just got better and better! We had ceviche next and then the most amazing fajitas I've ever had!!! Ugh I wish I could eat them every day (we actually came back the next day with the rest of the fish and got more fajitas). Then they brought out one more dish...Fish Fingers breaded in some yum coconut breading...and they didn't even charge us for it.

To top it all off, my boyfriend called over a mariachi band walking by and they played a beautiful song for us. What a perfect evening! I love Wahoo's! Thank you for the special attention and amazing food experience :-)

“Always Good All The Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

We take everyone here. The food is consistently good. Favorites are the happy hour specials like the grilled avocado and the shrimp Mac & Cheese. Open air, but the fans actually help. Never too hot really. Owners are always on site and provide personal service. You have to put this on your list when visiting Jaco.

We walked by and were drawn in by the menu outside. Good food, good service. Had fish and was very well prepared. Nice atmosphere, good to relax and enjoy the meal.

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The service was excellent, no one made us feel more comfortable and taken care of than Kattia during our stay in Costa Rica. The food was excellent with many choices at very reasonable prices. By far my favorite place to eat while in Jaco.
