We were 5 nights in Jaco and went every night to Amara.
Laura “the boss” makes time for every visitor to have a little chat.
The staf is friendly and always ready to help you.
But most important, the food was excellent.
I only can say, well done,keep it at that high level and people
will surely find their way to Amara

Hamara is one of the best atmospheric in town with that great and wonderful tasty meal.. I’ll recommend to whoever wants to visit Hamara Mediterránea cuisine ... Dishes was yummy like frie Alcachofa with ahioli garlic cream souce. Second dish “ Shrinp and Chorizo with Alcaparra and Natural tomate that was so tasty and shrimp was cook al dente.
No a doubt!! will come back to Hamara Restaurant..
Also, having there Mrs Laura Madrid as the best and friendly host and Manager.. This restaurant will hit the expetetion of the cuisine..

My wife and I had dinner in this marvelous restaurant.
Very nice place, brand new, just opened.
People there were very friendly, and professionally took good care of us.
But the more amazing was the food
What a surprise to taste really Greek rolls, a perfect grilled octopus with typical Mediterranean flavors...
They also had very good wine options, and pretty inventive cocktails.
The success of this place located in the center is the freshness of the food for sure, but before everything else the people looking for us there.
We knew Laura in her first restaurant years ago, it was already a great success, and his new restaurant is as usual a unique place in Jaco.
Thank you for this perfect moment
