We really enjoyed the Taco Bar, even though our group could not swing as we had a couple small children in our group of 12,that said it was still great, the staff is very helpful, and the food was great, and not AS overpriced like we found much of Jaco.

We were here for lunch with a group of friends. Very cute place with swing seats at the bar. You order your food (a lot of choice) and drinks and then the food is brought to the table. You can then add things from the salad bar yourself. Fast service.

You select a taco or two - fish - shrimp - tuna - more - at a very reasonable price and then you have a complete unlimited salad bar. Swing seats - outside tables. Great and cheap you walk away very satisfied and full.

Had dinner on a Saturday night with a large group of family and friends. Service was friendly, fast and accommodating. Large variety and flexibility of food choices. Food was surprisingly good for a fast-food place.

Thank you for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your time at Tacobar! As you said, parking can become quite tricky on weekends as we are in the center of Jaco, but if you are willing to walk a few meters, the road along side Tacobar that leads towards the ice factory is vacant after 6pm and there is...

Food was nice but the drinks were limited. The service was very good and the girls were friendly. Hopefully next time the bar will be better stocked.

Hi Andy, thank you for your comment. We would love to know what you mean by "drinks were limited" - did you mean the staff told you some items are unavailable? or our choices weren't to your liking? It would be very helpful to us if you would be willing to write to liz@tacobarcr.com about your experience. If items were... More

One of the best tacos places in Central America, the seafood tacos are exclusive and delicious. They located right in the center of town not to far from hotel océano, which if you staying with the hotel you even get a discount. Try this place you wouldn't regret it.

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.
