If you want Costa Rican Food this is the place to go. It's my go to place for a typical Costa Rican meal. I shared a plate with my partner. It was plenty for two 50 something adults who just needed a little something to hold them over until dinner. PS- the lemonade was pretty good too!

Food was to die for and huge portions. Always seemed busy but we were able to find seats. Prices were very affordable.

I have dined there frequently in the several trips I have made to Jaco, and for $6.00 US you get a wide assortment of "comida typical" at a bargain price. The food has always been delicious and for my money there is no place better for delivering value in Costa Rica, let alone Jaco. If you enjoy typical Costa Rican... More

We are here as a suggestion of good Tico food from our hotel owner. For $6 you get meat of your choice, beans, rice, plantains, salad, etc and a drink. Get the lemonade. This is as authentic as it gets. I can't wait to go back!

Simple, no-fuss typical meal! Pick what you want - tried chicken and two salads ( purple cabbage and cabbage and corn one). Loved it!

My wife and I grabbed this dinner at this joint. Layout is like a Panda Express, you pick your rice and beans and have the server add whatever protien, salad on the plate. The food - AMAZING...quantity is enormous and flavor is the best. Planning to go there again.

You get a plate with the food of the day and it's all very tasty. Also cheap, except for the ice cream we bought for dessert, $3 for a small stick. Tasty though.
