My GF and I were on vacation at Jaco Beach, and we picked up a little guide book for travelers. While looking at it, we read a little add stating $2.00 margaritas at Mono Verde. My GF decided to give it a try, here's our review:
Ambiance: outside not so cozy, inside very nice. Good decoration, good music.
Service: Excellent!!! The waitress' recomendations were precise, and she was very friendly/helpful.
Food: Very good. A nice mix of everything for every taste. Margarita was very tasteful!
Prices: just about right!
This is a place we will definately come back. You should try it!

My daughter and I chose this restaurant because they had air conditioning and we were sweltering, even at 8pm! We each had a delicious, reasonably priced cocktail before dinner. They brought bread to the table and it was wonderful. My daughter ordered 2 appetizers (instead of a meal) and they brought both of them at the same time as my meal. All of the food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. The staff was very attentive. I'd highly recommend Mono Verde!

From the outside Mono Verde Looks just like every other tourist trap eatery in the town of Jaco, Costa Rica. But step in side and you would think you were in Manhattans trendiest of bistros! The wait staff is wonderfully friendly and polite.
We ordered the Caprese Skewers and a chicken dish as appetizers. And the Avocado stuffed with Shrimp and Chicken Kabobs for our main courses. Before our appetizer arrived our waiter brought a special plate of bruscetta - garlic toast with a yummy citrus tuna salad and a tomato bruscetta - as soon as we tasted this we knew our meal was going to be so good! Aside from the absolutely beautiful presentation of the food, the chef uses only the truly freshest of ingredients, every ingredient is so fresh that his technique is preparation seems to be to let the natural flavors speak for themselves, without overwhelming the food with sauces. And wow, does this technique please the taste buds!
My husband and I would count ourselves in the foodie categorize and both of agreed that this meal was the best we have had in years! We found it so good in fact that every meal we ate after that in other places just couldn't stack up! So, on our last night in Costa Rica we dined at Mono Verde again!
For those wondering about price... This was the most shocking part! While it was the tastiest meal we had all week, it was also the most reasonably priced! We had 2 cocktails, 2 appetizers and 2 main dishes, we increased the automatic 10% tip(all restaurants charge it) to 20% and the total bill was still only $52 American dollars! This meal would easily run $150 in America!

Interesting and tasty dishes. Very good variety of cocktails. The area outside is a better option because of the noise level inside the restaurant.

Great menu and very good service! Reasonable prices! Calamari was somewhat overcooked but that was the only concern... $1,000 C Margaritas!
