Description
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.
