“Good food, so-so service at times”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Dishes and salad bar are great. Massive fudge brownies.

I have eaten at Tacobar about 10 times. Once I had to wait an hour for my burrito but they comped it. Other than this incident, no major hiccups.

Nice atmosphere (try sitting on the swings at the bar).

“We didn't want to like it, but damn, it was good!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

When on vacation, i generally don't like to eat at the same place twice, but we ate here FOUR times! 2 breakfasts, 1 lunch, 1 dinner.

Breakfast
The breakfast burrito can't be beat. Must have. It's big enough for two, but I didn't want to share.

Lunch/Dinner
Same taco setup: pick your meat, pick how you want it cooked and the seasoning. Then you add your own touch from the condiment bar, which is well-stocked and changes slightly.

“Tacos at the best”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I loved this place. Fish tacos were exceptional. Fresh place. Not gourmet but an excellent choice for an informal lunch or a warm night at Jacó Beach

“Beautifull set up”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This place has a very interesting architecture that makes the place beautifull. The food is good, at a reasonable price with a great salad bar.
