I knew what I was getting into, with a menu that has a $14 (USD) fillet mignon. I wanted an "enselate solo verdurdas" and they accomodated me well, and for the price, my steak was good. It has a nice outdoor atmosphere (Jaco style) and...More

My favorite place in Jaco. You can get great local meals for under $7 and the serving sizes are huge. The service is wonderful. Get a fresh glass of pineapple juice for $1. I've been eating here for years now and never disappointed.

This place was just ok for dinner. I personally would not go back unless it was to try breakfast. Steak was stringy ( I know CR is not known for steak), cheese pasta was good, and rice with shrimp was slightly better than average. For...More
