Great location and a wonderful place to sit and watch the surf. We were there twice once for lunch and the other time for breakfast have to say the breakfast was the best of the two meals. The wonderful ambiance makes up for the simplicity of the meal.

We stayed at Jaco Laguna Resort and the Tiki bar made our stay even more amazing. It's definitely the center of activity on the south side of Jaco Beach. Henri, Rosie and Josie (bartenders and servers) were friendly and provided great service. We had drinks all the time and charged it to the room. The fish tacos were the best... More

The food was amazing, the location second to none, right on the water. At high tide the water was slapping right off the break wall 10 feel away. The is what a tiki bar is supposed to be. Hand woven palm roof, very rustic but with all modern convinces of a 4 star place. Sunsets were amazing.

We came here twice during our visit, once as a couple then came back with a group of people we met. The beer is cheap if you buy it by the bucket and the food was delicious. One of my friends raved about the burger so much, I wish I had ordered it (though my meal was great too.) Both... More

But still open for whoever wants to hang out at a nice bar/grill on the beach. Prices are reasonable and service is good. Great place to watch the sunset as the waves wash ashore. Get there aa bit earlier and watch the surfers do their thing.
