Do NOT miss this place when in Jaco...Chinita's warm smile and welcome will make your day! Beware....she is only open for breakfast and lunch (maybe dinner one day soon, Chinita?)...and there are only two choices per day...but this is part of the fun...wondering what home cooked treasure she will be serving up today! No matter what you choose, you are guaranteed to love it...the food, the atmosphere and the whole experience will keep you coming back. Don;t miss Chinita's!

If you like discovering hidden, local gems, Chinita Pacific is as good as it gets. This SMALL restaurant is a true whole in the wall, but don't be mislead, the food is terrific and one of the most popular local eats in jaco. The owners cooks everything fresh each day, in fact there is no menu, each day there are 2 choices for lunch, the restaurant is very small, but Chinita and her husband make it feel like a small home, its literally like going to a neighbor or families house for lunch each. Homemade pastas and fishes are usually the lunch of choice, breakfast is also available. Lunches are just $6 and they even deliver in Jaco. Catering service is also available. This is a must visit in my opinion.

A local friend told us about this place. It was about 1:30 and we still had not had lunch. We were tired from a morning tour and did not feel like going out. We had heard that they delivered, so thought we would try them out. Wow! We had the choice between chicken and beef. 3 of us went chicken and one went beef. All were very happy. A meal this good and delivered for $6 each? We will call again.
Great little fine.
