“Perfect, Accommodating, and Authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

A young American couple living in Playa del Coco recommended Jardin Tropical located near the beach. The restaurant, without hesitation, accommodated our party of 12 for dinner. The food was delicious, authentic and reasonably priced. Awesome seafood and rice dishes. No reason to travel to Costa Rica and eat at an American styled restaurants.

“Tasty & authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

We enjoyed sitting outside and having lunch at this cute little soda. It is located on the main street in Coco, almost to the beach.We both ordered casado con pescado, fresh fruit shakes (try the mora con leche), & bottles of water. It was inexpensive - definitely under $10 each - and the food was fresh and delicious. One recommendation, if you order the fish, make sure you specify if you want it grilled or breaded. We assumed by ordering fish it would be grilled and it actually came breaded.

“delicious, inexpensive, authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

This was one of the best meals we had on our trip throughout CR. The food was authentic, delicious, and inexpensive. Our meals came served with a beet/potato/egg salad, a garden salad, plantains, chicken, and of course rice and beans. The servings were big. Great place for an authentic Tico meal.

“This is the food Tico's eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

This is a nice and tasty Costa Rican restaurant, with the local dishes nicely prepared. Prices are OK for the location. You can get a "Casado" (which is the most common type of lunch for local people) for $6, which is a good deal compared with the prices in some other locations. The food feels fresh, and the drinks are also good. Perhaps the place does not have the appearance of a great restaurant, but the food will meet your expectations.
