My friends and I visited Jaco for a short time, and within this period did not discover a better restaurant than La Fondua. On our first visit, we were blown away by the quality of the meat fondue (the honey mustard sauce is to die...for) and the exceptional service complimented this perfectly, with the food and drink being refilled before we could even ask. This prompted our second visit, and we were not disappointed, with the same quality replicated once again. The hospitality and friendliness of the staff, and chef in particular, was truly astounding. Although our time in Jaco has come to an end, if/when we return, La Fondua will be our first stop. P.S. it’s also incredible value for money. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!More

Great food great chef. We took his recommendations and were not disappointed. Highly recommend. I had the shrimp and salmon pasta....absolutely amazing. My wife had the swordfish which she loved and she is not a big fan of fish.

We stopped here for dinner while passing through town and it was amazing! Such unique flavor profiles like I'd never had before. We got the exotic burger and Hawaiian salad. It was the best salad I've had in Costa Rica by far. Both meals had...such interesting spices. So delicious. We got the Belgian orgasm for dessert and it was also amazing. Some of the best chocolate I've ever had. The owner was on hand, a super friendly guy. He makes everyone feel like somebody here. I highly recommend the whole experience.More

We had the good fortune of stumbling upon this gem. The food was incredible, the atmosphere is very inviting, new and very clean. The 2 rivers chicken is to die for, the chicken was cooked to perfection and the sauce was unlike anything I've had...before. Service was also top notch. Highly recommend this restaurantMore

My husband and I came in for dinner, I am a healthy, very picky eater and the chef made me a meal exactly how I asked. The portions were very generous and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the filet, potatoes and an array...of veggies and my husband had the pasta and meatballs. Both dishes were extremely delicious. The dessert was also very yummy. The food is very good and the prices were very reasonable. Must add.. the service was excellent, sweetest waitress and the owner came to talk with us and he was very charming.More
