Fiancé and I are in San Jose for 2 days and we came across this restaurant due to their eye catching building. Boy it did not disappoint. Everything is awesome! We both got 2 tacos, the beef and shrimp is so yummy! My favorite is their taco bar, they got everything you need to make your tacos to die for!... More

We'd been to taco bar in jaco 3-4 times and had taken friends to eat here as well and we just love their food! Our 2 years old daughter loves the wooden swing and the place is spacious for her to run around. This restaurant is highly recommended!

Taco bar was so much fun! Cheap, delicious food and the potatoes at the salad bar are great! We had so much fun on the rope swings and we even made a second trip the next day just to eat there again. We've joked that we'd fly all the way back to Costa Rica just for a meal there, so... More

Recommended by many native Costa Ricans, this food was amazing. The chicken alone was so succulent and flavorful that you didn't even need condiments or extra additions. We went for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. It's been 6 months since we've been to Costa Rica but my husband and I still dream about the food. Thank God we have friends... More

We stayed at the Oceano which is walking distance from the Taco Bar. We ate there multiple times during our stay in Jaco. I must admit it is a tad bit more expensive than the other mom and pop spots but the ambiance is amazing !
