“Best restaurant in Jaco.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

The atmosphere, food and service made for the best dining experience while in Jaco. The owner/chef is so friendly and came out to greet everyone and made sure we liked everything at our table. I hated seafood until I came to this place!

“Best place to take my fresh caught fish.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The chef created a wonderful meal around the Dorado that we had caught on a fishing trip that day. We called him and let him know we were coming. Brought our fish in with us and had a wonderful evening of food, fun and friendship.
We have also eaten their on other occassions and enjoyed the menue and service.
This is a must visit when you are in the Jaco area.

“A must while visiting Jaco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

This is a hidden gem! The food is absolutely delicious and gourmet. Great value! The chef definitely knows what he/she is doing. Presentation was great and full of delicious flavors. The staff was on point and had a smile on their face! It was my first time to Seaside Diner and it topped Graffiti and Lemon Zest. I can't wait to visit again. We couldn't find it a first but tell your cab diver its down the same street as Copacabana Hotel. Its on the right side just before you hit the beach. Sit upstairs for sunset!

“Great night at Seaside Diner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Had a great visit to Seaside Diner while on vacation with some friend. I'm from Washington, DC and was very happy to find a place in Jaco that parallels the service and quality of food that I've had in nice restaurants in DC. The outdoor seating was great--we watched the sunset over the ocean from the upstairs dinning room, and the food was fresh and delicious. We hadn't received service like the service we had at Seaside diner since being in Costa Rica. I'll absolutely return to Seaside Diner on our next trip down!
