I was thinking about ordering fish but ended up ordering hamburger even though my family was asking me not to. But I trusted the waiter who said "es muy bueno". Waited for long and here comes my hamburger, and I am thinking that I am going to have a great meal. Here comes the shock: too big bread and too... More

FYI, Mare pizza and BBQ Tangeri share the same location. My husband and I had had our fill of local food and were craving something more familiar, we chose Mare Pizza ordered the margarita pizza and it was great, we enjoyed it so much that went back the next evening for dinner.

The Tangeri has he best open oven, thin crust, pizza in Jaco. The atmosphere is fantastic with white table cloths, the service is excellent and the prices are right on. My wife and I split a $15 pizza and sometimes bring a piece or two home. Also, I forgot and left my camera there, came back three days later and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the fish dishes. Would recommend to order the grill. Why wouldn't you, the fish is so fresh. We went for lunch one day and tried another evening for dinner. Would not recommend the calamari dinner it was very chewy. This was unfortunate as the flavour was excellent, could not finish it. Mid range pricing, with table clothes our... More

We stopped for lunch on the way from San Jose to Manuel Antonio. Even though their pizza oven wasn't fired up yet, the kids found good food to eat and I was surprised by "Queen Style" Snapper. On the way back, we stopped again, this time on Sunday so the pizza oven was ready for lunch, which made the kids... More

In the month we stayed in Jaco we hardly ever saw anyone at this restaurant. We ate there the first day we arrived as it was very close to our condo. I had Blackened Mahi Mahi with potatoes (weird) and veggies, the fish was quite good. My wife had a breaded filet of fish, which she said was OK.

The mashed potatoes were great, very soft, creamy and light. The food was very tasty, but honestly I find it expensive for the amount they serve. Although, let's face it, in Jaco everything is about tourists, so it's expensive for us the locals. Either way, was a great lunch.

My husband and I frequent this restaurant when we are in Jaco. Their food is fantastic, the atmosphere is wonderful, and the staff are excellent. We recommend that you stop by any time of the day or night and enjoy this restaurant. Last year when the World Cup was playing, we were able to enjoy lunch while watching the Costa... More

The sea bass filet (queen style) was big and tasty. Yummy mashed potatoes and crisp steamed vegetables came along. Reasonably priced, excellent choice in Jaco.
