It is a funny restaurant located on the first floor, in Jaco's downtown. It is runned by an US family and it is really a must in Jaco. Food was delicious. The only thing is that most of the dishes are not in the menu and it is difficult to memorize the lenghty descriptions provided by the waiters. Anyway, we went twice and it didn't disappoint us. It is not cheap at all, but it is worth it. Another thing: the A/C is really freezing there. Be prepared.

If you want the VERY BEST...Lemon Zest is it! Everything on the menu is special and expertly prepared. Richard and Ellie (the owners) came out of the kitchen to greet us, and we felt that we were dining in their home. We dined there several times and it was always excellent. And save room for desert. The food chanel should do a special on this restaurant. Make reservations...the place is understandably busy.

Let me say that we had an okay dinner but from the menu descriptions is so excited about the food but although okay, I did not think it lived up to the hype. Waiter was also very enthusiastic but after we ordered we had to wait for quite a while to have our water glasses refilled and he also did not check as to the wine. My tuna was good but not rave-worthy.

Yellowfin tuna was fantastic! Ate on the balcony and really enjoyed ourselves along with the delicious tasting food

Simply the best food in the Jaco area, if not the entire Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The place rivals any restaurant in Los Suenos. Period.
