“A must while visiting Jaco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

This is a hidden gem! The food is absolutely delicious and gourmet. Great value! The chef definitely knows what he/she is doing. Presentation was great and full of delicious flavors. The staff was on point and had a smile on their face! It was my first time to Seaside Diner and it topped Graffiti and Lemon Zest. I can't wait to visit again. We couldn't find it a first but tell your cab diver its down the same street as Copacabana Hotel. Its on the right side just before you hit the beach. Sit upstairs for sunset!

“Great night at Seaside Diner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Had a great visit to Seaside Diner while on vacation with some friend. I'm from Washington, DC and was very happy to find a place in Jaco that parallels the service and quality of food that I've had in nice restaurants in DC. The outdoor seating was great--we watched the sunset over the ocean from the upstairs dinning room, and the food was fresh and delicious. We hadn't received service like the service we had at Seaside diner since being in Costa Rica. I'll absolutely return to Seaside Diner on our next trip down!

“Seaside Diner a lovely break from traditional tourism”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Seaside Diner is a unique Costa Rican restaurant. The food excels and the service shines beyond the typical found in small villages along the coast. It's slightly off the main street which runs through Jaco, making it secluded and resort like. The main dining room is elevated up in the trees with a view of the ocean. A must place to dine while in Jaco!
