Food was fantastic, but larger menu seems to have commercialized the once rustic taco hut. Still a relaxed vibe, awesome salad bar, and a must- the swings. We stuck with what we knew- shrimp, chicken tacos, and ceviche. All excellent in clean setting. Numerous staff keeps place well-maintained and service flowing.

Mahi tacos were a little dry but the chicken was descent. While the establishment does not serve alcohol they let you imbibe onsite and with a convenient store conveniently across the street this is not a problem.

Just had dinner here. This place is super cool. There are actual swings at the bar to sit at. Wish they had one in New York.... The shrimp coconut tacos are amazing!!!

A nice place to eat while in Jaco, you place your order at the window and it is delivered to your table, very helpful order taker and excellent fish tacos, however, not impressed by the salad bar and the prices were a tad high for jaco. You can bring your own beer, wine is served but not on the menu so hard to figure.

We saw signs for this place for miles and miles as we drove into Jaco so we had to check it out. I'd also seen the name pop up in a few quick skims on the dining scene in the area.

There are swing chairs against bar seating on either side of the main entrance/ordering area and a nice patio to the side with plenty of table seating.

With entree orders, you also get all you can eat "salad bar" which had sauces and accoutrements for the tacos as well as some coconut rice, various veggies, potatoes and other sides. This is a great value if you do take advantage of the salad bar.

I enjoyed the atmosphere, the service was great, the food was deliciously flavored and served quick.
