Zona K was a delightfully authentic CR breakfast spot. Our group really enjoyed the cinnamon toast with homemade jam as a complimentary starter. The traditional breakfast of rice, beans, eggs, bacon and plantains was one of the best meals I’ve had on the trip especially with the secret house made hot sauce sprinkled on top.

Tasty, clean fresh and great food both for breakfast and lunch in large portions made by friendly people in a cozy and nice little intimate restaurant and bakery. They have a lot of good cakes, brownies etc as well as it used to be a pure cake and dessert place before. They also make big cakes on orders exactly as you want, they made our wedding cake a few years ago. Their cinnamon pancakes, chicken finger mac'n cheese, chocolate or peanut butter brownies are all of my personal favorites along with the brownie milkshake and the frsh fruit flavor water they serve for free as a added bonus :)

Several friends who live here have been recommending this place for a while. Today was the day and it didn’t disappoint. I had the banana coconut pancakes and great presentation, portion and taste. The menu goes beyond breakfast and prices very competitive. Will definitely be back.

I was there today, with a friend. I ordered the hamburger, which was fine. My friend ordered the house salad. When the salad arrived, my friend had two bites and said she didn't like it. I went looking for the waitress to tell her that we would like to return the salad and order something else. The waitress immediately replied "you ordered it, you have to pay for it" without even asking what was wrong with it. A couple of minutes later, she stopped by the table to pick up the salad. At that time, she did ask why we were returning the salad, but my friend was so put off by her initial reaction, that she declined to tell her why. Also, given this reaction, we decided not to order anything else. On a side note, a couple of minutes later, one of the owners arrived, however, he apparently wasn't told that an item had just been returned, because I didn't notice any reaction from him. I understand that some restaurants have a policy of not giving refunds if most of the dish has been eaten, to prevent people from taking advantage. However, my friend barely touched the salad. Additionally, just to be clear, the waitress wasn't rude in any way, I was just shocked that she automatically ruled out any refund without checking with anyone first or even receiving any input from us.  I will not be returning.

Dera Frank Thanks very much for taking the time to review our restaurant, I am very sorry that the waitress did not ask ahead of time why did you not like the salad, I try to alway innovate and create new flavors, so the feedback would have bin great, I also wanted to mention that we did not charge for the salad and we do hope you come by another time and give us a try. Thanks

During our visit to Costa Rica, Chef Kenia prepared the most amazing birthday celebration dinner at our condo in Los Sueños. I was easily able to coordinate everything via email prior to our arrival; the process/set-up was seamless. Chef Kenia accommodated every request and each course from start to finish was exceptional. I would highly recommend Chef Kenia for any special event regardless of location, i.e., in your home or at her restaurant; everything was over the top and we truly enjoyed our dining experience.

we really lucked out with zona k being right by us, they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner including pastries and coffee. the staff and owner are SO very kind and helpful, the food is incredibly creative, tasty and the owner and his wife have done an incredible job of creating complex flavors in all their dishes. really tasty food. we came back immediately the next day for brunch and enjoyed immensely! The owner even shared a new appetizer he's trying out on the house (free of charge). the atmosphere is really relaxing also, well worth coming back!

Now that it is been open about a year, we finally made it to Zona K Bistro (located right on Pastor Diaz) tonight for dinner, and it was absolutely spectacular. Wish we had come sooner! In a very comfortable, open-air environment, I had the fresh Dorado with peanut sauce, and fresh vegetables. My wife went for comfort food - chicken fingers with cheesy mac and cheese. Both were wonderful and affordably priced. Great service too. Don't miss the tres bruschetta for an appetizer. Recommend highly!

Delicious and fresh! I had traditional breakfast that had thick amazing bacon, fresh bread, perfectly made eggs, rice and beans with plantains. The coffee was fresh and even the water they brought to the table was special. It was infused with mint, strawberries and green apples. The service was great. The menu was full of things I'd love to try for breakfast lunch and dinner. So glad we found Zona K!

This week we had both Kenia and then Her Husband Moses come to our villa and cook for us. The food was amazing and they were both so friendly. At both dinner services they were on time and within 1.5 hours we had been served appetisers & a grill cooked meal followed up with a wonderful desert. They left the kitchen cleaner than they found it. Thanks so much for adding the topper to our trip to Costa Rica.

We first went to Zona K for breakfast. Everything we had for breakfast was so good. It was so tasteful and fresh. My wife had the traditional breakfast and I ordered the omelette with potatoes and a pancake to try. The pancake was soooooo good. The restaurant and bathrooms were very clean, which was great! The service was just as good as the food. So much so that 2 days later we went back for dinner. The dinner we had was Out Of This World. It was Ridiculously Good. We started with the tacos as appetizer. My wife had the Lobster and Shrimp pasta and I had the beef tenderloin. For dessert we had the banana foster and a creme brulee. Both meals were superb!!

After all the good comments I heard about this place I was really disappointed. Ambiance was poor with no indoor seating; outside on sidewalk was loud with excessive street noise. The staff was curt and really seemed uninterested in our needs. We went for lunch and the menu was limited. The pulled pork sandwich lacked flavor. Can't comment on other dishes as everyone had the pulled port with similar comments.

We visited this sidewalk cafe twice during our short stay in Costa Rica. The croissants we ordered had ham and cheese and the other creamy cheese filling with sliced almonds and honey topping. These were good, if you had them heated but what brought us back was what seemed to be layered graham crackers with a light filling, believed to be caramel, and white frosting with sliced almonds. Before we left, I got what I thought was a small lemon pie pastry but when I took a bite I discovered layered graham cracker with I believe to be a caramel filling with a powdered sugar and coconut flake topping. Oh well, it was still good.

Our friends had dinner catered in for their anniversary. The experience, customer service and food were all amazing. They served a menu of typical Costa Rican dishes and took the time to explain the details of how each dish was prepared.

We had spent the evening at the beach and wandered by this restaurant on our way home. And this place did not disappoint! We ordered the Coconut Margarita (highly suggest this frozen). They use real coconut milk - it’s divine! We also enjoyed their Ravioli and Tuna BomBom. We couldn’t decide which one was better. Both were so delicious. We finished off the night with their Pana Cota, once again we couldn’t have asked for anything better. And lastly, the service was amazing. Some of the nicest people we met. It’s not many places where you can enjoy gourmet food And also have such a personal experience with the staff. This is definitely a place where we will dine again. We can’t wait to try it for breakfast!! When you are down in Jaco, from breakfast to after-beach snacks (like us) this place will be a highlight!

My fiancé and I both had the traditional breakfast. I was so sad they were out of the traditional breakfast with chicharron so I asked them if they could substitute bacon. It was absolutely DELICIOUS. Super simple but hands down our favorite breakfast place during our week long stay. My fiancé also had the whole wheat blueberry pancake which was served with honey and it was outstanding. Service and food were wonderful.
