“Hospitality Out of This World”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

So there I was, just walking around Jaco when I discovered this cool looking restaurant, Caliches Wishbone. When I set down the owner Kristen quickly approached my table and helped me pick out a great dish (I'm vegetarian). I ordered a great veggie-bowl with this amazing/spicy sauce and a margarita...I swear I almost ate the chopsticks too (ha-ha). These were the best chopsticks I've ever used. Not only was the food great, but the vibe from Kristen told me were kindred spirits. Her humor is to die for and her aura is contagious. She has since given me a free tour of Jaco and the beaches, shown me the local and authentic stores and the hospitality has been total VIP. She even got me a great zip-lining deal (which was amazing).

If you want amazing food, a warm atmosphere and VIP hospitality, definitely check out Caliches Wishbone. I mean, isn't the name alone like, super awesome? :-)

“A must visit”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

We had an excellent meal here. Our surf insturctor recommended this place so we figured it would be good. It was great. I had the tuna which was excellent. My son and my wife also loved their meals.

Great staff, very clean, very comfortable.

This would be a must stop for us on our next vist to Jaco.

“Well priced, fresh good food”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

I came in for ceviche but they were out. They have good specials and prices already include taxes which are a lot in jaco. I enjoyed the food it was pretty decent, not a huge portion but good and it was not expensive.

“Way Overpriced for Mediocre Food”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We had calzone and pad thai, neither of which had any flavor despite us asking for hot or spicy dishes. Prices are insane. Compare this to Rustico or The Wok just a block away and the only reason you'd eat here is if you have way too much money and no taste.
