“What a great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I have eaten here on and off the last 5 years. I have to say that the food has gotten better each year and this year is no different. I have gotten to where I eat just about every lunch and dinner here when I'm in Jaco. What I like is the Lady's that run the restaurant are very friendly and a joy to talk with. The Chef's in the kitchen are just as terrific and they can cook great seafood dishes but, I also had beef tenderloin and it was fixed just as I like it, medium rare. My friends and I went fishing and had them cook the fish and they totally surprised us with 3 disks, one of banana leaf baked fish, deep fried fish and ceviche all were just great. So, if you are in Jaco, make sure to go to Wahoos and meet the Lady's and have some great food.

“Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We stumbled on this restaurant by the recommendation of a Canadian storekeeper/owner... What a find!....I ordered the Tuna...........solid and very tasty.....just seared on the outside, it was delicious and the piece of fish was enormous......Too much, but I wasn't going to leave any to waste!...we also had a chicken dish...and chips and guacamole..........all very good........the lunch though was pricey..........about fifty dollars, and no alcohol.......if you are on a limited budget for lunch, then there are cheap bars on the beach..but this place has quality food.
