“Birthday Dinner on Calle Bohio, Jaco, C.R.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had the "2 people for $35.00 special" which gives you an appetizer to share, a choice of 2 entrees and a dessert (fudge brownie with ice cream or Bananas Foster).. My husband had a couple of beers and I ordered a mango smoothie and glass of red wine. The front of the restaurant opens out onto the street, Calle Bohio. Deliveries for the restaurant are made through the front door. As we waited for our meals a large truck sat idling noisily in front, a delivery man came in with meat in cryopacs under his arm. He stopped at our table to show us, saying it was beef tenderloin. Another man delivered 2 bottles of whisky to the bar. All the while some very loud gentlemen carried on a boisterous conversation at the bar.
This is not an intimate dining setting but the food was fresh, cooked at the front of the restaurant. For $4.00 I got a generous glass of red wine. Service was friendly and I have been spending my winters in Jaco for 20 years so I knew what to expect. Total bill for the meal with drinks was $50.00. next time I will order a different appetizer as the veggies that came with my steak were the same ones used in the vegetable tempura..

“Best burgers and top quality steak in the country!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

I was challenged by the owner, Tim, to stop over and try Posiedon's cheeseburger. He claimed it was the best you could get in Jaco Beach. He was almost correct. It WAS the best cheeseburger I have eaten in Costa Rica! I was served with a thick whole slice of carmelized white onion, lettuce an tomato on a fresh bakery bun. The meal came with fresh cut French fries and American Heinz ketchup. You have to emphasize American ketchup, because of the considerable difference in taste between the two countries. Heinz is just better. Tim also invited me to return sometime to try a Tbone steak, cooked to order. Once again it was deliciously fantastic. I ordered medium-rare, I got medium-rare with a baked potato and salad. I have tried other steaks in Jaco and Herradura, but Posiedon has the best. Great staff and the ladies who cook in an open kitchen are very proud of their skill, and I like that. The hospitality of the entire staff is second to none and I recommend each and every meal at Posiedon to be one to remember. Breakfast is also awesome, real local fruit smoothies! Love the guanabana.

“Good food but hasn't that good atmosphere”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

Maybe it was because we didn't eat here during the rush hours but non the less I expect a good service. The waiters are absolutely not rude but I felt as though they didn't really care that we were there. Also I can't give a higher point since I don't quite like the breeziness that comes with a hotel restaurant.
