I wanted to tell everyone about the patio at Jaco's looking at the Palafox Pier! It was so amazing but a little hot. There are yacht's to dream about right in front of you with the amazing Lauren attending to your culinary needs. She perfectly...More

The location is beautiful, and you can see the bay even if you eat insidie. I ate an amazingly cooked salmon, with rice beans and mango. Unforgettable. And the pasta was great too, something that matters when told by an italian.

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
