Went here with the whole family. Loved it. Something a bit different. The complimentary sallad bar was good, too.

I really don’t understand how people pay $20 for two wheat tortillas (not even warm) with the smallest amount of fish on it.
They even cut on costs by making customers order at the register, I mean guys, really? I get way more elaborate food and table service for the same price UPSTAIRS from your place.
Plain thieves.

With all due respect our 2 Taco plate does NOT cost $20, it costs 5,350 Colones which is exactly $9.55 USD and includes unlimited use of the salad & condiments bar. In fact, we do NOT have a single dish on our very large menu that costs $20, even our Premium Main Courses, so that claim is simply FALSE or a case of wrong calculation on your part. Each Taco has 100gr of meat or other protein on it served over a flour or corn tortilla. We also do not have any restaurant upstairs, we are a self standing restaurant, so not sure what you are referring to with that remark.

Seafood is especially expensive in Costa Rica so its great to find a spot that doesn't break the bank. Clear, bilingual menu (choose a taco, burrito, salad, etc) then your protein and style (herbs, coconut or spicy). I highly recommend the coconut shrimp! All the options come with the extensive salad/toppings bar. They also have a great selection of smoothies and natural drinks. Great spot for a casual quick lunch or dinner. Very friendly staff, I'll be back!

Thanks for this great review! You seem to be a Tacobar pro (-; If you visit our Jaco branch we have added some new Taco options we would love your opinion about: Tempura shrimp & Korean BBQ beef & chicken. See you soon!

I did not know this kind of taco bar. I am really surprised, in a good way. You can choose between different options and it is very tasty. Then you have the salad bar wich is simple but the different salsa are awsome. I loved it, and it is pretty healthy, that's a good point. The place is nice and original.
