Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You must go to this place if you’re going to Jaco. The food is absolutely amazing, so much flavour, and plenty of choices for vegans. Cool vibes, and the food speaks for itself.

We were only in Jacó for a day and saw the good reviews for Ohana, so we went to check it out for lunch. We both had the Poke Bowl with Tuna, which was absolutely amazing (I thought about ordering a second one). Long story...short, we came back for dinner. :)More

Everybody knows Ohana is the best restaurant in Jacó! Not only is it a place where the food is always fresh and the cooking consistently delicious and flavory, where you can enjoy delicious sushi as well as sophisticated recipe’s but also you can litterally observe...the staff speeding between tavles and bar to get you immediate service. Highly recommended?More

Ohana’s was a delicious sushi restaurant a year ago, but there must’ve been problems with their sources and recipes because so many items were not available and the rolls were not very good. They had no edamame, no unagi, no tobiko. I am posting a...photo of the Passionfruit margarita that they used to serve but that for some reason don’t make anymore.More

We could not have been any happier with our experience here. The restaurant was very busy and with more reservations coming in when we arrived. The owner Diego (Great guy) spoke with us and said he would make sure there was a table for us...in 45 minutes. When we came back, as promised, Diego had a table for us. the Sushi was excellent. Fresh, tons of flavor and delivered quickly. The servers were attentive and we never went without drinks or anything else we needed We can not recommend Diego and his restaurant highly enoughMore

The sushi was amazing! Loved the ginger margarita. They also give you back colones 600/1 if you pay on US. Which is great!

Visited here as we love sushi and it was the top rated spot in Jaco - it exceeded our expectations. The fish is really fresh and the variety of sushi is brilliant. We’ve gone back nearly every day!

Just a quick walk from the beach Ohana is a perfect stop for lunch or dinner. The atmosphere is cute and inviting, the waitress was polite and attentive throughout the whole stay. The food is quite perfection, we ordered the caramelized salmon roll, some nirgiri...and margaritas. Everything was fresh and tasted amazing. We loved the “no regrets” roll so much we order a two! I definitely recommend to anyone looking for fresh fish and a positive atmosphere.More

Hands-down the best restaurant in Jaco! With great service, fresh fish, fruity cocktails, and an airy and laid-back ambiance, Ohana hits it out of the ballpark. I could spend hours here! My boyfriend and I definitely liked the sashimi ( especially the tuna!) the most....The rolls are OK. Mint mojito was delicious. Beware--Ohana gets super busy later into the evening, so try to get there a bit earlier!More

Best restaurant in Costa Rica by far. Diego, the owner, is a total positive vibe and will make your night special. Staff is family and they will make sure you feel like this. I just keep coming every Friday.

Well deserved as a top restaurant in Jaco. Our family loves sushi and Ohana exceeded our expectations. The lime pie dessert was the best. Staff and locale are great. Located on a side street with lots of parking.

I went to Costa Rica for a friends birthday and while visiting some locals recommended going to Ohana, and wow were we not disappointed. This place is amazing, the owner, Diego, and the staff are incredible. The food was amazing, the drinks were great, and...the vibes were perfect for our vacation. Diego constantly came to check on us and even shared the creation and growth of his restaurant, you could truly see he cared about his business and customers. It was so good we went a second night for dinner. Check it out u highly recommend it.More

The menu prices are in Costa Rican Colones (easiest way to figure out: multiply by 2, drop three zeros at the end)
