One of the best restaurants in Jaco, owned by a wonderful husband and wife team. Everything is good, nice wine list too. Suggest you eat inside, outside can be noisy on Pastor Diaz. A bit pricey, but well worth it. Don't miss Lemon Zest!

This is a true gem and not to miss experience in Jaco! I was with a group of ten celebrating a special birthday of one of the members of our group. The service was top notch from our greeting at the door, all the way to the end of the evening. Our waiter was professional and knowledgeable. He was familiar with the extensive menú answering multiple questions, making suggestions on wine pairings and truly enjoys his job. Meals were presented efficiently and there was no lag between appetizers, meal and dessert. Drink service was excellent and the wine list was extensive and well presented. I ordered the lobster francais and it truly is one of the best meals I've had in my life! Lemon Zest is the definition of true culinary excellence. Do NOT miss this fantastic restaurant in Jaco!

While we didn't go to this restaurant, it was highly recommended by our our resort staff. If we would have stayed one more night, we would have dined here!

We were seated immediately. We could choose inside or outside overlooking the street. This is on second floor. There is quite an extensive menu and many specials to choose from. The wine is poured liberally. The food and service were very good.

The food is very good and the chef is very creative in his presentations. Good flavor for a decent price. Remember you are in the middle of Costa Rica.
With a second floor view of the main street the people watching while you dine is fascinating. If you get Brandon for your waiter you will not only be completely informed about the evenings food offerings but you will be able to have all your questions about the area answered.
