Description: We are a laid back casual artisan restaurant in the heart of Jaco Beach. We serve upscale comfort, and gourmet food without all the fuss of fine dining. We work with several organic farms, and artisan food producers in our area and throughout the country. We combine these local flavors with international cooking techniques to bring you a truly unique dining experience. Everything we serve at Green Room is made fresh with the best ingredients our country has to offer! Sometimes it takes a little longer, but we hope that if you have taken the time to join us you'll appreciate having your food prepared to order. If you're used to McDonald's and Subway maybe we aren't for you :-) So if you're in Jaco, come by...relax and enjoy some great food in our laid back dinning room or in the garden....stay for some live music, bar games, or just to chat! We have live music every Friday with local and visiting musicians....as well as specials every day, and evening. We serve brunch, lunch, and dinner six days a week for dine-in, take out, or delivery...and also have a full bar and weekly artisan cocktail specials. So if you want a break from the usual Jaco tourist traps, come by for a visit...hope to see you soon, PURA VIDA!

“A GREAT ADDITION TO JACO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

I just had a wonderful breakfast at one of Jaco's newest restaurants (my first visit). Very new but really together. Met one of the young owners - very impressive & a great attitude. I like a fairly hard to get right omelet & it was done right. Super service, nice & airy, very clean. I will be going back.

“The Best Eggs Benedict”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I have been eating at the Green Room since their original location in Playa Hermosa. Eggs Benedict is one of my favorite things to eat and the Green Room offers three different types. In all my many visits the food is always fresh and tasty. The restaurant has a welcoming, pleasant vibe; cool and airy.

I have brought family and friends to eat here and I will continue to recommend this restaurant to locals and tourists.

“Two great meals in Jaco.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Had the chance to eat at Green Room in Jaco twice last week. Once for lunch and once for Dinner. I had a fantastic burger for lunch with poached eggs and a great cocktail or two (including fresh juice ice cubes) and pork loin wrapped in bacon for dinner. I highly recommend both. My wife had french toast for lunch, which was as good as it was last year when we ate at the old location and then really good crab cakes for dinner. Very affordable too. It's tucked around the corner once you cross the street from Los Amigos.

“Best breakfast in Jaco Beach hands down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

We eat here regularly and no one in Jaco is close to the same quality for breakfast. They have a crab cake eggs benedict, amazing pancakes, french toast, breakfast burrito along with healthy organic options. They also do a fantastic lunch and dinner. Be aware that they don't open for breakfast until 8:30am.
