My favorite place to eat in Jaco! The pizza with black beans, and avocado was one of the best pizzas i have ever eaten in my life. I got it 3 times while I was in Jaco and would go back just for the pizza

We visited Wishbone for the first time three years ago so we were excited to return for the Spicy Tuna and Arroz Con Pollo o Camarones along with margaritas and the black beans that are just worth the visit to begin with. The service was great and even remembered that we had the same server. This was a special trip... More

Classic costa rican dish was enough for me (I'm a big eater) Since it was so cheap (under 3000 colones) I figured I should order a plate of something else . Mistake,couldn't eat what I ordered.

Were stopped in this place, while shopping. They staff was very friendly and helpful. The rum Punch was cold & hit the spot. The fish taco were ok. (I would probably ever order them again).

Staff was nice and helpful,... More

The food is good here, not great. Drinks a little weak. The service really needs work. When my guest was scolded for using the bathroom "not a public restroom" then sat with me at the table you could see the remorse from the staff member. You can't undo stupid and aggressive behavior. I'm sure it's not the first time. I... More

Ate here several times. The avocado salad & sushimi are awesome. The plate of nachos is huge, great value. Has a young, top-shelf, ex-pat waitress from Kentucky; super pleasant, a real sweetheart, that is super efficient, and friendly. Appreciated if you're from the US and don't speak Spanish!! Enjoyed the mountain & surfing videos playing on the TV screen, as... More

We decided to go for a more "authentic" meal so we stuck with a typical Costa Rican plate and WAS NOT disappointed! Fresh, flavourful and filling. The black beans were sooo tasty. Great service...super place to eat! Will definitely go back next time.
