“Outstanding restuarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Perhaps the best food I ate while in Jaco. The service was great, an extensive wine list and wonderful atmosphere. Very clean with great food, the terloin was cooked to prefection and the bearnaise sause was delicious. Sit at he very back of the Wishbone, it is very airy, catching the breezes from the ocean and the salt air makes this an enjoyable evening.

“Poke Bowl! Poke Bowl!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Don't miss the poke bowl when you are in Jaco. Great price and a huge bowl of some of the tastiest poke around. No complaints here!

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Eight of us went to have dinner at Wishbone due to advice from a local. I have to say I wasn't impressed. It was way overpriced for the quality of the food, that's not to say they don't give you a lot of it. I ordered the 'Casado' which comes with chicken or fish (fish was delish!), rice, beans, mashed potatoes (??), a fried egg (way overdone where the yellow was cooked through), and a salad which was nothing short than the crap you buy ready made at the supermarket. Drinks were also very expensive. Our bill came out to $140 not including tip. Just say, no thanks. Look for a SODA instead.
