If your tired of the mom pop soda's this place was a great change. Food and service was excellent but it was a little pricey even for the U.S. and prices didn't include tax and tip (another 23% I think). It had a nice street seating area and an AC seating area, very uncommon for Jaco. Wait staff were fantastic.... More

Delicious food, great environment and service. Edwin and Ricardo always treat me and my family like royalty. Try the beef carpaccio and the shrimp tempura, and always give their daily specials a chance. One of the best dining options in Jaco.

I went to eat with my husband. This was not the first time, my last trip to Jaco we had Christmas dinner there with the kids and it was good. This time was a little different, the waiter forgot our appetizer ( tempura shrimp with passion fruit sauce... sooo goood! ) that's to bad, I really was looking forward to... More

I just stopped in for a drink and found myself wanting to come back for the food. It's one of few upscale places for dinner. Mucho wine. Nice romantic place for dinner. It's a must visit while in Jaco.

In a town that has nearly the same prices for food and drink as the states, it was refreshing to find this gem with their $2.00 margaritas. they were tasty, strong-ish and even served in a to go cup for our walk to dinner.

I just started visiting this restaurant a few months ago. The food is always fresh and well prepared and they always have a special. Of course I go there for their $2.00 margaritas they have everyday. However, what makes the Mono Verde special for me is their long term server. Edwin. He has an eye for detail, knows his menu...

I am so glad we tried this place. My wife's birthday and our 5 month delayed honeymoon took us to Jaco, Costa Rica. She wanted lobster and we saw they had it online. I called and spoke with Edwin, my impression was he is the manager, and he made sure they had some for us. He was wonderful, I believe... More
