We went to Rioasis four times while we were in Jaco. We had yellowfin tuna, steak, the Jaco burrito (on more than one occasion) and the pizza. It was all delicious. I loved the burrito and we even order a pizza to take back to our condo to eat the next day, it was really really good. I would definitely recommend trying Rioasis!

After reading all the enthousiastic reviews, we tried to find this place a few nights, but couldn't find it. It wasn't located where the trip advisor map pointed to and the lonely planet map gave a different location as well. By accident we saw a sign from Rioasis that told us they are located across the Best Western Hotel. That's how we finally found it, after quite a long walk out of the city centre. It was just opening, so there were no other guests yet. We sat downstairs and while we were sitting there, the bar opened and suddenly we were sitting in between a huge screen with a beamer projecting a movie, a television playing something and a bar with flashing lights and music. Not exactly a romantic setting for a dinner.
The pizza itself was indeed thin crusted, but the topping was not impressive in any way. It was edible,but certainly not worth the title best pizza, as is advertised everywhere. Maybe our expectations were too high after reading so many great stories, but we weren't convinced at all.

We went to this restaurant twice with the kids and had such fresh carpaccio and pizza as if we stepped out into Italy!!! The staff was super attentive and catered to us amazingly. It is located right nect to the bus terminal/stop in Jaco and it is a must if you are in the area. We went back twice and were not disappointed!! We'll be back once again, I'm sure. BRAVO!

Ambiance is average, beverages are average, but the pizza is very,very good. If you find yourself in Jaco and must have a slice to get you by, then you can't go wrong with Rioasis. The garlic bread appetizer is a waste, but the pizza is real deal.

I suggest that you eat downstairs to avoid the heat of the ovens that are upstairs.
