On vacation with friends and family when suggested to eat here. Great ambience and vibe with really good food. Ample proportions. True Costa Rica cuisine with fresh ingredients. Had a tuna bowl and it was excellent. The nachos as a starter were delicious.

Wishbone is another spot in Jaco that we have to eat at every time we are in town. The menu is huge! Something for everyone. The specialty potatoes are large and filling perfect after a day of surfing. The poke bowls are some of the best I have ever had- the tuna is so fresh it melts in your mouth. It’s open dining so it can be warm at times but cold beer helps. They also serve complimentary chips and beans with your meal.
Great to see the same staff year after year.

Everyone was very attentive and kind. The salad was good. The pepperoni pizza was a bit soggy, but my friend loved the calzone. Overall decent place to eat.

Went on a table of 10. From those 10 dishes 6 weren't good at all. The pita is just lame, the Pad thai is taking huge amounts of JIF peanut butter and mixing it all around. And a "classic" dish like a "arroz con camarones" (rice with shrimp) was lame without any taste. For sure not a place to go with so many options in Jaco

Probably my favorite in all of Costa Rica! And I live here. Indoor/outdoor seating. Socialize or people watch...it’s right on the strip. They specialize in fresh seafood and pizza. Poké is one of their top sellers and it’s awesome. I’ve also had the tuna, mahi, pad thai, and sashimi. All have been great! I have never had their pizza but friends say it’s really good! Especially for you non seafood eaters. Definitely stop in. They have a great vibe there
