We had shrimp tacos which were delicious. Service was fast and friendly (server spoke in both English & Spanish). We paid about $20 US for our 4 tacos, a beer & lemonade.

There is an array of restaurants and local food to choose from at Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. I found this restaurant close to my hotel. The staff was kind and the food tasted great.

Ate here last night for our last meal in Jaco. This restaurant is also a must do. Very affordable meals which are rather large and excellent quality. You can't go wrong in visiting this place. The staff are excellent and while we are English speaking in their country (shame on us) the staff are fluent. Caliche is often present and... More
