We ate two dinners here -- open air, view of the water, small band playing and the unusually friendly, what can we do for you service. The food was fresh and included a catch of the day which we had grilled with a garlic butter sauce -- excellent. Many of ingredients come from the owner's organic farms like the tomatoes... More

We only have outstanding things to say about the Rico Tico Jungle Grill. Our waiters, Johhny and Allen, couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. They always greeted us with a smile, were prompt with the food and answered questions about their country. In addition, the food was delicious and freshly prepared. They was a variety of food choices available... More

This restaurant is great!! Get the Banana Boat Flambé! The happy hour is great too! Get the sangria! Our server was the phenomenal! So kind! The ambiance is perfect too!

We ate ate Rico Tico twice a day during our stay. At first we were hesitant because it's right next to the family pool with slide and waterfall (beautiful by the way!). But it was a great atmosphere in the restaurant, gorgeous views and the food fresh and well prepared. The seafood was so fresh and cooked to perfection. The... More

A big thank you to Julio for making this our favourite dinner on our Costa Rica holiday. We enjoyed cocktails while watching the beautiful sunset and then had one of our best meals on our trip. There was live music. The service was amazing and made it really special. I recommend finishing your meal with the banana flambé dessert.

Rico Tico Jungle Grill. We offer casual outdoor dining surrounded by jungle gardens and graced with breathtaking jungle and ocean vistas. The grill offers Tico cuisine, a children's menu with many specialized fresh tropical cocktails. Just ask Jimmy Buffett about our buffet - not to mention, our margaritas! Choose from daily fish specials, and ask for the famous Banana Flambe as the grand finale.
