Love this place, good location on the main strip. A lot of choices on the menu and pretty well priced. I always look forward to the wishbone on every jaco visit.

“A Jaco institution that keeps going strong”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

The four of us had thought about trying Wishbone several times during the week and, ironically, we ended up taking refuge there during an afternoon deluge (ah, got to love, the "green season"). Once inside, the owner (who has been in Jaco since 1994) showed us to a table and made certain that we were promptly served.

Our nachos plate was big enough for the four of us to share and still not finish. I can personally recommend the Pad Thai both for flavor and quantity. My wife's Mahi was a touch dry but still tasty and my son and his girlfriend seem to truly enjoy their plates. If you are looking for a comfortable Jaco restaurant with a good menu selection and good, plentiful plates of food, Wishbone might just be the place for you.
