“SUPERB BEACHFRONT BREAKFAST, LUNCH OR DINNER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I had breakfast this morning in this new to Jaco restaurant. It is absolutely the best beach view in town. And speaking of town, this is in the safest & most upscale area of Jaco. Near Hotel Nine almost directly lined up with the best surf break in Jaco. Breakfast was eggs (normal), sausage (not normally found here & especially tasty), hash browns (very good), toast done the right way, superb orange juice, great coffee. The rest of the menu for lunch & dinner looked excellent & I will be going back tonight to give it a try. Moderately priced for Jaco which is on the high side. You could not find better beach ambiance than this.

“Fun at The Point Beach Bar & Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Great breakfast place including fresh squeezed juices. American style breakfast as well as island fare.

Also fun afternoon beer and nachos with two large screen TVs for sports or turn toward the beach and watch the local surfers do their thing.

“Your Ideal Beach Bar ... Found!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

What makes up the best beach bar? Icy cold drinks, delicious food, fantastic people, chill atmosphere and of course ... the ideal location. Get the starter of guac and chips, move on to any one of the great tacos, empanadas, throw in their signature cocktail. It's all great here and The Point has it all! A great addition to Jaco Beach!

“Great place with THE BEST VIEW in Jaco Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Todd and everyone at The Point sets one of the best atmospheres in Jaco Beach in this great beachside bar and grill with the BESTEST VIEW in Jaco Beach. Could it get any better than this? Hard to do so, but they do it! The Point is also one of the only places in Costa Rica where you can get American Style Breakfast Sausage just like Jimmy Dean's!!! They make all kinds of great things to eat, the their breakfast plates are 'Out of this world GOOD!" Its too easy to go for just breakfast and end up staying all day long. Todd, Tatiana and their staff make it hard to want to leave! Every time I go to Jaco I have to stop by, its a must!

“Best beach bar in Jaco.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We found this little gem nestled on the beach in between residences on the second day of our trip. Todd and Tatiana are incredibly gracious hosts and made us feel at home. Their mojitos are delicious, matched only by the view.

If you're looking for a unique, local beach bar, this is the one in Jaco.
