Jacala is always my big boozy lunch every time I visit and this last time was no exception. The menu is the same as always. The service is consistently good and highly intuitive - just as you think you might want something, a server appears...More

The restaurant is a little more intimate than many of the beachfront ones at dinner. Jac runs the show and is quite the talker - some will love this, others may not. Sadly, the food did not live up to the expectations. The steak tartare...More

We were looking forward to a good meal at Jacala but drove all the way there only to find it abandoned and the front door with a board across it. The website had said open, but obviously not. really unfortunate.

We were pretty disappointed with our experience at Jacala. The food was just okay and the service was glacial - so slow that we almost opted out of our main meal. It took almost 2.5-3 hours for our 2 course meal.
