WE ate there two nights. First night I had two tacos, one coconut shrimp one snapper. Second shrimp burrito There is a bar to add fixings and sides. I was very impressed both times. Great atmosphere to hang out in and you can sit on swings to eat. I highly recommend this place.

Have been here twice a day for the last 3 days, will be heading over for lunch once again. Moderate pricing, great selection of extra goodies and rope swings for bar stools. The owner is a super friendly guy. Will be coming back to Jaco just for their tacos alone.

This place has a great selection of tacos and other food. Some of us had tacos. I had the trout. The bar is awesome! Toppings plus veggies and potatoes to complete your meal!

You'll get what I mean by "swing by"... grab a swing and enjoy these amazing tacos with super fresh ingredients and an all you can eat salad bar. The potatoes are tempting to fill up on, but I make sure to eat my tacos first because they are addictive. The local craft brews are super tasty too! I've always gone... More

Go for the awsome tacos and stay for the garden ambience. This place runs reasonably efficient considering how very busy it can get. The only drawback to this place is that you cant even get a seat in the busier hours on popular days. The good reputation of this place preceeds it.

Enjoyed the tacos, but there wasn't really much from the salad/toppings bar that would be a good addition to the taco. More like a side salad. Swings by the bar are a nice touch for atmosphere.

Stopped here on a recommendation. Food was very tasty, but a bit pricier than expected. The staff was very helpful.

Excellent value and good food. Pancakes with fruit and crispy omelettes were our choice. Great food and a value when you don't want to spend a fortune on breakfast. East to find and parking is available.

Gorgeous place with amazing service, and you can't beat the hot springs. Hot springs were my favorite part. Even though Dinner (ala cart) at the restaurant overlooking pool was amassing also. We will be back👍🏼
