“Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We stumbled on this restaurant by the recommendation of a Canadian storekeeper/owner... What a find!....I ordered the Tuna...........solid and very tasty.....just seared on the outside, it was delicious and the piece of fish was enormous......Too much, but I wasn't going to leave any to waste!...we also had a chicken dish...and chips and guacamole..........all very good........the lunch though was pricey..........about fifty dollars, and no alcohol.......if you are on a limited budget for lunch, then there are cheap bars on the beach..but this place has quality food.

“My favorite place in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Wahoo's has amazing food and onderful service. Was sad when I arrived on Tuesday and found they were closed Tuesdays. Went back for lunch Thursday though and as always the food was great and had an outstanding fresh fish with salad and rice and beans for about $8. You really can't beat Wahoos for quality and value for price paid. They have a great breakfast menu too so don't miss this place when visiting Jaco.
