We traveled as a group to Jaco because we heard it was very "Americanized" and friendly for tourists. What was good about the restaurant is that the waitresses all understood English and were competent at their jobs. The food was great! Hamburgers, wraps are delicious. Not a lot of Onion Rings (only 3) if you ordered them as a side; the fries may have been a better option. The waitress doesn't come around that often, but service was decent. All prices on the menu has tax and tip included, but when the bill comes around, it's divided up; makes it a little hard if you're splitting with a group of people. You can pay with Costa Rica money or in American. The bill doesn't tell you the price in American, but does tell you the exchange rate. Good air conditioning inside!

We stumbled on this gem while looking for an ATM macihine. The food was fantastic!! We had the yellow fin tuna and the portion size had to be at least 10 oz. I have ever seen a serving of tuna so big. It was wonderful. They were out of the whole snapper so we will be back to try that. The service was exceptional!!

Excellent and huge smoothies here. Had a shrimp wrap, came with rice'n beans (gallo pinto), didn't know if was going like but it was ok. My wife had a avocado + shrimp salad and was great. Nice atomosphere in downtown Jaco. The have outside nice setting with wooden tables and inside with AC which didn't bother to go in. Overall it was pretty good.

Went here twice during my stay. Great for watching sporting events. Can't say I was in Costa Rica for burgers, but they did have the best one in town. That being said, I don't think the staff could be more apathetic about customers. Didn't really bug me, but I can see how it will annoy others.

I did appreciate the selection of beer they had on tap.
