fantastic tacos with a varied salad bar to fill you up in addition to the food. The hanging seats are a great novelty feature, brilliant fun while you are waiting.

Pablo and I dined three times at Tacobar during our 2-night stay in Jaco. And not just because Tacobar was conveniently located on the way from our hotel to the beach.

Would give it ten stars if possible!! Delicious food, great little salad bar, and my teenagers loved the swings instead of chairs!! Perfect meal. Just hard to find parking nearby but that's Jaco I guess.

Great food, busy and lively. Bit of a wait for food but well worth it and fun to just enjoy a drink and take in the atmosphere. Salad/toppings bar was well stocked, servings size good value for money, and the staff friendly and helpful.

A do it yourself buffet taco bar, not a real taco place, tourists are the only ones who go there, and I will not go again.
