We ate here on 2/16/17 with the couple with whom we were traveling. We arrived at 630pm and the table was ready for us. Each of us choose a different meal and each of us thought the food was very good. The service was above par. We ate outside because the weather in Jaco is sheer perfection. We were very... More

We had dinner one night here. We ordered the 2/$35 and it was incredible! This is a great deal and you definitely will not go home hungry! Try the Vegetable Tempura, have some Tuna Steak(amazing) , Mahi Mahi or other entrees and end it with a brownie and ice cream! So yummy!!!

Best fish tacos in Jaco! We met the owner Tim and he was a fantastic host. We were looking for a place to watch the Packers game and went in to check it out the night before the game. An hour or so later, we left knowing we would be back. All the food looked good but DANG those Fish... More

We went here a few times during our vacation. What a hidden gem!! They have daily specials. Sunday breakfast is amazing eggs benedict served with a mimosa. They also have 2 for $35 dinners. The tuna and mahi mahi is amazing. Everyone in our group was happy with their meal and it was at a great price.
