The owners are very friendly, but unfortunately their food couldn't meet our expectations, or at least not mine. The food wasn't very tasty and I know you could add the spices to your own likening, but I used everything and it still didn't have much flavor. The meat (beef) was also pretty dry whereas the chicken was pretty okay. The pizza thingies were actually pretty good so it wasn't all bad.

I am sorry but the price you pay is just too high for just an average Mexican meal.

If you are still doubting I agree with all the other average rated reviews which I this time kinda ignored since it were so few. Yeah I kinda regret that now.

My friend and I were looking for a good place to eat and we saw this place at tripadvisor. After reading the (mostly) positive comments, we decided to give it a try. This restaurant complies with all the good reviews. The food is amazing and the ambiance too. Furthermore, Jorge and Rebecca (the owners) are the most kind people you will meet. We have had a very nice evening here and if we are ever in the neighborhood, we will definitely drop by.

This was the last place we ate in Manuel Antonio and we are so glad we fit it in our trip! The couple that owns the restaurant were so hospitable and the food was delicious. They were super helpful providing vegan options for us! This is a great spot for yummy Mexican food and great company!

Ta-Chos is serious about quality food. Everything is homemade and the owner makes you feel like part of the family from the minute you walk in. We each got an entree and split an appetizer... entrees are large enough to split comfortably. I had the tacos (beef and chicken) and they were some of the best I ever had. This local mom and pop is the PERFECT spot to make some new memories and enjoy this blend of Costa Rica and Mexican culture (the wife is a local and the husband is from Mexico.)

The owners (husband is from Mexico, wife is from Costa Rica) are the nicest people in the world! They spent tons of time getting to know us while the food was cooking and we learned much about Costa Rica from them. They have scarlet macaws (dozens) of them that frequent their property and also showed us a pair of sloths that were high up in a tree. As we were leaving, a tribe of small monkeys came flocking to the property; a great end to a great couple hours at TA-CHO's! Food was delicious and the atmosphere was unbeatable! A must see if you visit Costa Rica!
