We had 2 meals there....the first was on a Saturday evening at the end of a surf competition. It was loud, noisy, and service was surly & slow. Because of that, we felt we should give the place another chance. The prices were somewhat reasonable, and the menu was extensive. It was within walking distance of our hotel, and we were able to stroll the beach in the moonlight after our dinner. I definitely wouldn't go there simply for the food, but having said that, it was convenient, and just predictable.

This was recommended for dinner by a local, so of course we had to try it! The food was pretty good (we were here for dinner and breakfast - dinner was better), drinks were really good, service was good, but the location is what seals the deal. You are on the (black sand) beach and it is breathtaking at sunset. You can also rent horses to ride along the beach from a local.

Remember to check your receipt - most restaurants already include the tip.

Just south of Jaco Beach, Costa Rica is a hotel/restaurant. They offer a nice menu. Friendly staff. Great view of the ocean and white sand beaches.

This place has great tables, a great beachfront setup, and quite a few items on the menu. Some are great, some not so much. Service is reasonable. The prices are average to a bit high for what you get quality wise when it comes to dinner items. The music is often the same and outdated. But the surf is always louder and the views are great so that's easy to ignore most days!

This is the place to come sit ride the waves and come back for a beer. At the end of the row, great views over the beach and the waves, great music, chill staff. The tuna steak is amazing so get it before its gone, but like all of Costa Rica not inexpensive at $15 and don't forget the tourist gringo areas all charge 13% tax and 10% service. That said BBQ Saturday and live music is fun and locals go but all closes down around 9pm... It's Costa Rica!
