I really like the swings and the plants, very nice cocktails too and infused water. I like that they have a salad bar, although the salads are always kind of the same. They lack somethings in them like avocado, balsamic vinegar would be good and...More

Thank you for your comments, at the Jaco heat the avocado turns brown very fast so it's not an ingredient we can add to the salad bar, although you can order fresh avocado to be added to your plate. We do not serve sushi (-:...More

Amazing flavors, chill and fresh place, cheap, friendly staff. I ordered a pita bread with orange flavored chicken and then you could pick as much salad and sauces as you liked and that was 4800 colones/$8. Totally worth it!

We went here for an evening dinner. The tacos were great and the amount of selection is massive! We had 3 tacos for 2 people and some onion rings. The price was very good.

Thank you for choosing Tacobar, we are so glad you enjoyed your visit. Since you love fish, I suggest you try the Honey-lemon Salmon or Yellow Fin Tuna steak during your next visit

Ate here for lunch. I was a little hesitant about the condiments, salads etc in the open for customers to dish up. I got ill about 6 hours afterwards. I don't believe the condiments were kept cold enough.More
