We met Mike after our surf session at Playa Negra as him and his son were coming out of the water with the fresh fish they had just speared while freediving. Found out he was the owner of Jalapeno so we swung by and ordered fish tacos. Amazing tacos and awesome to hear about his selective harvesting methods to keep the local fish stocks healthy and sustainable. Eat here with confidence!

Food was really good. I had the Fiesta Salad and my two boys had the quesadilla. Staff was very nice, spaces was clean and well kept. Were were lucky and got to meet the owner of the restaurant/market and his family. Very sweet family with two boys same age as mine. They were very kind and welcomed by boys to play. I bought three of their homemade Da-Kind bottled salsas to take home for family. It tasted so good on the Fiesta Salad.

This place is so amazing! All the food is fresh and locally sourced! The tacos are amazing. They also make their own sauces in house to compliment the menu items. Yum!!

We had the best breakfast burritos here. Both the Tico and Gringo were loved by everyone in my family. Trust me you cannot go wrong stopping here.
