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.

They have a special 2 for $35. This includes one appetizer, two entries, one desert. We usually get two appetizers and no desert. I recommend the filet minion or fish. This price includes tax and tip. We usually tip extra. Only drinks are extra. Or you can order off the regular menu.
