We were worried because we were the only people in the restaurant. We sat inside in the AC. Our waiter was very friendly and happy. I had the avocado shrimp and it came with the most delicious chips, a type of potato I can't remember the name. We shared beef carpaccio which was also very good. My husband got the... More

This is one of the easiest places in Jaco to find thanks to the large sign along the main street. The food was excellent and on par with any fine seafood dining you would find in the US.

Wondered into this place on a random Thursday afternoon and our entire trip changed. $2 margaritas pulled the group in but the food made our group stay! On a five day vacation we managed to eat here three times. Staff was super friendly and made us feel welcome! Bravo!!! This place is a must try and we will be back!

We came here with a group of 13 adults and children. The service was great and the food was delicious! They brought us complimentary desserts that were to die for! Strong margaritas and great outdoor patio seating. We would definitely go back.

This is a nice little restaurant. the staff is very attentive and friendly. The food is perhaps a little over-priced because they can be a little small but very fresh. Wine list is very fair and margaritas at $2 unbeatable!

Had the best tuna steak ever last Saturday, we went there with a group of 12 and I was impressed with the speed of being served our wines and appetizers, after that the food quality remained very high, and the prices were agreeable. Must go again. Ken.
