“Super yummy cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We stopped here for lunch after spending some time on the beach in Jaco. Sat at a table with a view of the downtown area. Food was exceptional, my husband had a black bean and tortilla appetizer with a nacho meal and I had a mahi burrito. Everything was awesome, including the quick service. Really relaxed, chill place. The drinks were awesome too, we had milk smoothies that was large and super yummy. highly recommend stopping here.

“Overpriced for average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Not impressed with this restaurant. The food was average- nothing really noteworthy or special. Very expensive for what you get. Portions were decent, but the food subpar. I ordered a Veggie Quesadilla, and it did not have any flavor and very little cheese on it. There are much better options- there was a Peruvian restaurant where our bill was about the same, but we experienced gourmet foods, full of flavor, and more variety on the menu. The location of this restaurant gives it the opportunity to overcharge. Definitely a tourist restaurant- no culture.

“Best Tuna Sashimi Lunch in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We visit Jaco about 4 times a year and having lunch at Wishbone is top of our list. The tuna sashimi plate is the best in town - a simple and healthy lunch. The frozen margaritas are also a great treat at lunch when paired with the guacamole and pico.

Very casual and easy - no reservations needed.
