Description: There's a place in Puerto Viejo, Costa Rica that is giving people something to chat about. Conveniently located 75mts south of the bus stop, and just a stones throw away from the beautiful Caribbean sea.... Outback Jack's is a spectacular establishment with great food, a funky vibe, and fun atmosphere. With our array of barbecued meats, fresh seafood, homemade soups, and sauces; we strive to make every taste bud in your mouth happy.... This is the place to celebrate any occasion big, or small..

“Good but a bit overprized”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had lunch at Outback Jack's. We were attracted by the mystic chaos decor. It is a flashy colourful place in Puerto Viejo, hard not to notice.

All sorts of old stuff is collected and all over the place. It really looks cool from the outside. However once inside and having lunch all the stuff feels more like dusty garbage. Nevertheless the chips and fish was very nice and a large portion.
The only downside was the price. It was quite expensive for a place in Costa Rica. They serve nice pub food but at a restaurant rate without the service and environment. If you don't mind to pay it then it definitely worth a visit.

“Awesome spot! Great, beautiful food and people!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

This restaurant is a real treat. All the staff are amazingly kind and helpful. The orders can take a bit of time, but they're worth the wait, they really do look lime the picture above! We ate here 3 times and everything was great every time. Highly recommended! The restaurant and bar itself is very quirky and worth a visit, even just for a drink.

“Quirky, fun and good food.”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We ate lunch at Outback Jack's on our most recent visit to Puerto. The owner welcomed us and made sure we were well looked after. We started with homemade lemonades, watermelon liquados and margaritas which were delicious. 3 of us shared the large BBQ platter and the chef was happy to cater to my friends dietary requirements by making her a vegetarian quesadilla. The food was excellent and we finished it all!
The decor was interesting! Inside felt a little cramped, not a great view and it wasnt cheap but overall a very good experience.
