“The real deal Japanese!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

A relatively new restaurant in Jaco that looks so nice you might think it would be pricey. It's actually the most authentic and best priced Japanese restaurant in the country! If it was a contest, Arigato could go head to head with any Sushi place in North America. Sorry Tsunami, I'll be going across the street now for better Sushi and fast friendly service, spending almost half $. If you go during happy hour 5-7 you can get the Spicy Tuna Roll or Crunchy California Roll for 2000 Colones ($4)! Also features a full Japanese menu with Teriyaki Chicken, Tempura, Miso Soup and Edamame. Outdoor seating is a major plus. We'll be back again and again! Should be one of the top ranked restaurants in Jaco.

“Hands down the best Sushi in Jaco”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

This restaurant should be way further up the list. I have eaten in many of the places listed in Jaco and this place is amazing. The sushi is amazing, the atmosphere fun and informal. The Chef is the real deal and was born and trained in Japan. I would recommend this place to anyone.

“One of the best sushi places - anywhere”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We travel to Playa Hermosa/Jaco regularly, and since it had opened, Arigato had become our favorite restaurant in Costa Rica. Freshest fish, imaginative dishes, fast service and pretty inexpensive. Our favorite is the snapper. Highly recommended.
