This was our favorite place to eat in Potrero. We went 3 times over our 8 day vacation. Amazing atmosphere and vibes. The food was delicious and well priced. We loved the shrimp skewers. Thanks to the owner Darling and her family for their great...service and good times!More

We ate at La Jama a few times during our last holidays and it was never delicious every time! I was particularly impressed with the veggie burger and my partner with the ceviche. Service was great and they were dead helpful offering options for our...daughter.More

While in Potrero, go to this place. Great food, better service and a cool vibe overall. Big menu with many breakfast, lunch and dinner options all for reasonable prices. Rain or shine you’ll be well fed!

5/5 would recommend. We loved everything about our dinner at La Jama Playa Potrero. The service was fast and very pleasant. The ambiance was beach-chill-quirky. The menu had plenty of options and the prices were extremely reasonable (some of the most affordable prices we have...seen in the Nicoya Peninsula). We ordered the Crazy burger and the Fish burger and were honestly shocked at how delicious it was. Perfect ratios of bun to meat to condiment to cheese (OMG the cheese was delicious) to vegetables. The potato wedges were crispy and perfectly seasoned. Very highly recommend.More

After visiting a few beaches nearby my girlfriends and I were in need of lunch! We saw La Jama as we drove by and circled back to check it out! Family run trendy soda with a local artist doing his work while we were there....We ordered a variety of items including casados and tacos de camarons. All of the items were very tasty. The family that runs the restaurant were very kind and helpful when navigating what to order! They have cervezas as well, which was a must after a hot day at the beach!More

Stayed in Costa Rica 10 days, this is the best soda (Restaurant) I ate at the whole time I was here. Staff was really friendly and spoke sufficient English to order. Tried 6 different dishes eating family style with friends and they were all great....Definitely try their fries!More
