We stopped by Poseidon for a late lunch on a rainy day. We enjoyed their fish tacos and selection of beer. Great respite from the rain and heat...

On the recommendation of another Trip Advisor commentator, I ordered the Grilled Yellowfin Tuna and the Asian Salad. The presentation was as delightful as the meal was delicious. Nice ambiance and very reasonably priced. While I am still in Jaco as I post this, I intend to return, and recommend Poseidon to others.

Many of us used to travel to Poseidon Restaurant for a nice monthly dinner. About a year ago the service dropped, quality of food fell, and the manager was just plain a Jerk. No more for us. We will just stay around our local.

Thanks for your time to response with such a positive review. The AC we installed in the restaurant last year has become a big hit!! And with Jaco always having such HOT weather, it is nice to escape the heat and come inside to enjoy some good food and drinks. Hope to see you back soon! More

The restaurant is very comfortable and pleasant. It features breakfast, lunch and dinner with specials for lunch and a fantastic dinner special. A friend of mine and I enjoyed their 2 for $35 tax and tip included. Excellent choice with shared appetizer, dessert and two ample entrees; fresh local fish, chicken, beef and a veggie selection.

We are so glad you were able to enjoy the 2 for $35 dinner special, and thanks for leaving such a great review on TA. We decided about 2 years ago to keep this dinner special running year-round and 7 nights a week. So please come back and try it again....we offer it every night of the year!!! More
