Ordered a cascado fish lunch, 2,500 colones. Got a ton of food and great fish fillet. Would definitely go there again, can't get a better meal for the price.

We both had one of the daily specials, sea bass in a white sauce with veg and mash and free glass of wine for just over $7 each. Fish was perfectly cooked, red wine good and chilled. Service was quick and efficient, with a smile.

When I lived in Jaco this was my goto joint. They have a great selection on the menu. The food is made to order and I've never really had a bad meal there. Typical Tico fashion that they usually hit you with double carbs (rice AND french fries) but here they will substitute veggies if you ask nicely...lol. Avoid sitting... More

We had a long walk by the beach but finally get to the center of Jaco. What to choose for lunch, maybe some fast food or some small bar no! Let's take a place that are many people inside. It was Isaga, as always in such situations it was right decision. The food was creative and good. Beef amazing but... More

Good food and reasonable prices. Would definitely go back for dinner. Casual and kid friendly. Nice staff but they don't split bills.

I had Isaga recommended at hour hotel i Jaco, and I was not disappointed. The restaurant is located down a small sidestreet, but do find it, because the food is delicious, plentiful and reasonably priced. You should definitely try their seafood. The service was also very good, even though we had to wait quite a bit for our food (but... More

You will enjoy tasting their pescado with palm hearts. It comes with rice and a salad. My husband ordered fillet with seafood rojo. On our final night in Jaco we both ordered the pargo rojo entero (entire red snapper) fried with vegetables. It went well with our cold beers. Wow, what fantastic dinners! Come for the food and friendly service.... More

A friend living in Jaco recommended the restaurant. It was decent and reasonably priced. It was full of locals but the area overall seemed a little sketchy. The shrimp al ajillo was tasty but a bit oily and the rice a bit crunchy.

The food was PERFECT. The portions were massive. The prices were beyond reasonable. All around one of the best restaurant experiences I've had in Costa Rica, couldn't have been better.

Amazing Costarrican Food, what ticos eat like when going out to non-thematic restaurants. Great shrimps with rice and don't be scared to order the pricey Ceviche, the quality of the fish is worth it. The rest of the food has a veeeery good price, so it's not a tourist trap like many others. The girl that served us was a... More
