The service wasnt the best but the food was delicious. We were looking to have some Mexican food in Costa Rica to try something different. The margaritas were so good and if you get there before 6pm they are $2 !! Totally worth it. The steak taco salad was excellend and my boyfriend loved his seafood burrito. Fun place, with a cool atmosphere. We were even surprised by Mariachis!

We stayed at Hotel Plinio for a few nights recently. Since the hotel is a bit far from most of the restaurants, we ate at Jefe's a few times. The food was excellent. Try the steak taco salad. It was delicious. Also, the breakfast tacos were a great way to start the morning. And they were only $2! Another great thing, they serve $2 margs every day until 6pm! If you are in Manuel Antonio, stop in for a marg and a taco. The owner was very nice. He's usually there in the mornings and afternoons.

The food here is cheap, fresh and delicious. Loved the guacamole and the tacos bravos. We stayed in Hotel Plinio so we ate here for 2-3 meals a day for a bunch of days. The breakfast jam (pineapple i think it was) is awesome. Ask for Cesar. He will do anything he can to help you. Would absolutely go back to Jefe's and Hotel Plinio!
