Great food. Reasonably priced. Staff was friendly. I didn't really like the vendors trying to sell us stuff at dinner. The Jaco area is worth a visit walking up and down the streets.

To be fair, we didn't stay and eat here, although the menu looked great...tex mex, pizza. We grabbed some pizza for takeout and it was really good. I wish we had gone there to eat in at some point, it had a great atmosphere and the waitress (even with limited english) was really friendly.

The atmosphere was fun, the food was yummy- we had chicken cheese fajita and there was a lot of cheese. The pizza was good too!

The menu is extensive with, what seems to be, something for everyone. My friend and I had dinner there this week. I had a small everything type pizza and my friend had a burrito. Both were excellent. The service was great and our waitress was terrific. I would highly recommend a stop by to give it a try.

Wishbone had good food and a fun atmosphere. Diners are able to sit on a patio overlooking the main street of Jaco.

Well they did everything right this day. Nice welcome, fast service, great wine, excellent food - we had the feeling that these people wanted us to have a good time. And certainly we had. We went there for lunch.

Just had the jumbo shrimp at the Wishbone, all I can say is awesome! Five shrimp, deveined, with shell on looked like five lobster tails! Everyone else in the place were ogling my plate like I had hit the mother load. Jumbo shrimp are hard to find fresh down here, kudos to the wishbone!
