Our waitress rarely came by and... More

I had eaten at Wahoo's before but did not have a chance on my last trip. The food was good, The bar was under construction. I did see the new bar before I left. I think it is nice box shape with sitting all around. It is under new management also.

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.

Food was not memorable, but the price was. Ordered a fajita, the chicken was decent, but the rest of the meal was disappointing and not filling. Went to a small cheeseburger place after and got a burger for 1/4 of the the cost(it was much better).

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 the price, I would go elsewhere.

My husband and I took advantage of one of their specials which was dinner and a drink for two people for about $20. It is not a big place but we were seated right away. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the food and about what to do while visiting Jaco CR. The food was very good. We recommend this... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Jaco. It's a tiny little outdoor spot with only a few tables but their food is great price is less than $10 and they even make the best pineapple juice fresh right in front of you. The service is super nice and very accommodating. I think we ate there at least once a day... More

We carried some fresh tuna and mahi we had caught 2 days before over to this restaurant early afternoon for them to cook up along with two sides and make reservations for 9 people at 7pm. (Common for restaurants to cook your own fish). The meal was terrible. The tuna was well done not seared as we had ordered. The... More
