Tangeri sits right off the beach. We went their for lunch, dinner and drinks on more than one occasion. The restaurant sits under a big thatched roof. You have a great view of the beach. They have round tables with big bases and I found that a little difficult to sit around comfortably, but manageable. We like the food a... More

I have been at Jaco for the last 5 days trying different restaurants. Some very expensive but not with good food... others very rustic with poor cuisine... and actually also expensive for what they offered. Finally I found this restaurant (Tangeri BBQ). Good service, nice atmosphere (clean, good and not loud music at the background), but the most important, great... More

We enjoyed our lunch here. Two of us had the fajitas and I had the Tangeri Salad and sangria. It was great. We also enjoyed the nachos appetizer. A nice place to sit and relax for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant might have the best food of any beach front restaurant in Jaco. The setting is gorgeous, as it is right on the beach. We had the Chrifrijo for lunch, a traditional CR meal, and it was delicious. Service was great. Prices were ok, not very much in Jaco is cheap, so we are always happy to at least... More

I was thinking about ordering fish but ended up ordering hamburger even though my family was asking me not to. But I trusted the waiter who said "es muy bueno". Waited for long and here comes my hamburger, and I am thinking that I am going to have a great meal. Here comes the shock: too big bread and too... More

FYI, Mare pizza and BBQ Tangeri share the same location. My husband and I had had our fill of local food and were craving something more familiar, we chose Mare Pizza ordered the margarita pizza and it was great, we enjoyed it so much that went back the next evening for dinner.

The Tangeri has he best open oven, thin crust, pizza in Jaco. The atmosphere is fantastic with white table cloths, the service is excellent and the prices are right on. My wife and I split a $15 pizza and sometimes bring a piece or two home. Also, I forgot and left my camera there, came back three days later and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the fish dishes. Would recommend to order the grill. Why wouldn't you, the fish is so fresh. We went for lunch one day and tried another evening for dinner. Would not recommend the calamari dinner it was very chewy. This was unfortunate as the flavour was excellent, could not finish it. Mid range pricing, with table clothes our... More

We stopped for lunch on the way from San Jose to Manuel Antonio. Even though their pizza oven wasn't fired up yet, the kids found good food to eat and I was surprised by "Queen Style" Snapper. On the way back, we stopped again, this time on Sunday so the pizza oven was ready for lunch, which made the kids... More
