We stumbled on this little gem while walking the town of Jaco and boy are we lucky we did! The food was delicious and the service was excellent as well. The tuna was especially good. It's nice to sit along the sidewalk and people watch while enjoying a meal and a brew. Very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. We liked it... More

Food was really good. I'm vegetarian and they customized the enchiladas. I would say I could get better enchiladas in chicago but wishbone has really good food; I've heard the best in Jaco.

We only had the Wishbone salad but it was above average for a "complete" salad. The house wine was a below average Concha y Toro. Nothing to criticize but might not be worth a repeat.

I have surfede with Caliche for almost 20 years and eaten with him just as long. He knows how to make real Hawaiian Poke, and his baked potatoes are KILLER!!! Atmosphere is down to earth surfer vibe, and check out his walls filled with writings form pros to bros, sisters to misters, and everything in between. The walls are also... More

My husband and I were more than surprised when we stopped by this small roadside restaurant on the Main Street in Jaco. We had 2 rounds of beer, the cheese dip and a small shrimp pizza. They comped us one round of beer because it was slow getting to us, even though we didn't say a word! And as laid... More

Had their Poke(phenomenal) and a Bbq chicken pizza. Both were very good but the Poke was some of the best I've ever had. Waitstaff top notch. Will return while in Jaco.

Three of us here in Jaco on vacation dined in for lunch yesterday. We ordered two supposedly wood-fired pizza ....it was disappointing. Our bill was $44 USD. We have no need to return. Service was friendly ...food was not. This was recommended to us by another restaurant owner ... we are suspect of the recommendation.
