Very simple decor it looks like a take out so don't be fooled by the sushi. We had tuna sashimi to start. I never can get my kids to eat, and this was so fresh for the first time they devoured it. The spicy tuna roll was a little too mushy for our liking but the vegetable special roll made... More

I can't say I went to any restaurant and had bad food. Everywhere we went was excellent. I especially love eating in the patios and having iguanas come out and join us. Or Raccoons as they ate out of my hand. This place had a great presentation to all their dishes. The food was excellent and service exceptional.

I can eat here everyday! Fresh fish, friendly staff and cold beer, what else do you need!? Love the Mini Salmon skin salad and the mix sashimi.

We were disappointed. Sushi was average. Pleasant bartender but not very helpful explaining our questions. We are familiar with sushi. When we paid our bill we were told it was a dollar more then the total listed on the tab, huh? We gladly paid just to get out.

Went to Arigato sushi for the first time after living in Costa Rica for a year and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant was right in the center of Jaco & in a great spot. It's facing the road so it's a great place to also just chill & watch the world go by. We have with us our 3 years... More

Love everything about this restaurant! The service, the food, sitting in the bar to see how they make all the dishes or sitting in the table to see Jaco's environment. If you are in Jaco you must go to Arigato

We went here during our stay in Jaco. Really good sushi for a reasonable cost. They don't take reservations but we had no problems and it was the Christmas holiday week.
