We were referred by a friend, so my husband and I ate therefor lunch last week. They have the coldest beer, so refreshing on a hot day! The menu has a lot of variety...I had the small bar b que chicken pizza and my husband had a BLT pita. Both were more than we could eat...will definitely go back for lunch or dinner. Can't wait to try the tuna pokey per the other reviews. The service was very accommodating.

At there twice. Really enjoyed Caliche's Poke, his own receipt, and then the whole Red Snapper. Yum yum.

The food here was really good and they seem to accomodate requests and changes. We were surprised about how large the portions were and enjoyed every bite! Reasonably priced, too.

Here's the pros and the cons. The whole red snapper was tasty but the fish was too small. The tuna pokey which is served over a bed of hot sweet rice was the best I have had anywhere in the world, with large fresh pieces of tuna. This dish alone gives the restauant a 5. Typical slow service which is the norm for the area but again, everything is very laid back in Jaco and us Americans don't know how to relax,

This restaurant has a great selection of menu items and incredible service. I give the management a 12 out of 10. My husband and I made reservations for our 25 wedding guests to have a casual, late dinner and we could not have been happier with how accommodating the restaurant was. Not only was the food delicious, but all 25 guests were served hot food at the same time. Everyone loved their meals and had a great time. The restaurant has a fun, festive vibe - it feels genuinely "surfy" (for lack of a better word) and Costa Rican. The fact that it has an open porch is also great for people-watching and enjoying the tropical air.
