We have just moved to Costa Rica and are always on the lookout for great restaurants. We really enjoyed our meals at Steve & Lisa's Restaurant. I had Jumbo Fried Shrimp and my husband had Fettucini Alfredo. Both were delicious with generous helpings! We would...definitely go back.More

We stopped here for lunch based on TA reviews. Not disappointed. We were looking for something casual and quick. Some grilled garlic shrimp and grilled chicken sandwiches were particularity tasty. Back on the road in less then an hour. Thank you guys.

Steve and Lisa’s On the way to Jaco just past tarcoles is a nice little rad side restaurant with really good food . Stopped in on the way back from San Jose for a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised. We got the patacones especial...and Asian tuna the patacones were huge with all the fixings plus a delicious warm seafood salad if you like them you need to get them here . The tuna was seared perfectly with sesame seed crust and it was fresh tuna not the frozen stuff it makes a difference. The staff was pleasant and helpful Can’t wait to go back and try more .More

Very good food and service. The "traditional" plate very filling, nice mix. Good stop for lunch if you're heading south from Jose's Croc River Tour!

Having eaten at the other restaurant close by at the sea, this time we tried a new seafood (pesqueria) restaurant 100 meter further. No view to the sea, but perfect sevice and super food. Highly recommendable place.

Driving to Jaco from San Jose, it was one if the few places open. Plenty of outdoor dining and could accommodate a large group. Service was good. Food was okay.

Good food, nicely presented. Not super special, but a good option when driving through. The prices are a bit high... Suggestion: they could improve on their fries (too soft).

This is another great restaurant. They speak both english and Spanish as do most of the restaurants in the area. This is the second time we have visited this restaurant. In all fairness one was extremely hungry and felt the portions were a little on...the small side. The meal was perfectly cooked and served in a timely manner. Only had breakfast as we were in a rush. It was recommended by a friend and we are glad they did.More

We got there mainly because there were plenty of patrons yet not full. First glance at the menu was like, not the cheapest... Sizeable portions, good food. Hamburger was in the top of what I've tasted so far. Nachos are very well served. Salads and...the típico plate will keep your stomach working for a good while. Pineapple juice is also very good. Good place to eat!More

We stopped here on on our way from Arenal to Manuel Antonio for lunch. At the time, we were the only ones at the restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was good and large portions
