I ate here four times in five days - can’t beat 3000 colones for some excellent chicken, rice, beans, plantains and a potato salad (or pasta salad) to die for! I wish I’d found this place on my first day!

Super tasty costa Rican food, really cheap. I got a heaping plate for about 5 USD. right next to Jaco beach, barefoot friendly, surprising clean--even the bathrooms.

Great food, friendly service! We both picked out what food we wanted, two breakfast plates. Including two Cafe Con leches, and two bottles of water. The total cost 6000 colognes. A morning staple! P.S. the restaurant cat is super cute.

The food was incredible. Such unique spices and flavors. Definitely authentic costa Rican fare. Great price in an open air restaurant close to the beach.
