The drive up to Villa Caletas (Ampatheater restaurant) is worth the trip itself. The sunset is spectacular. Great Service, Good food, a little expensive. Overall I'd reccomend this restaurant

This is the best place to eat breakfast! Granted, it's the only place on property for breakfast, but the views are amazing & it's absolutely the best place to start your day! The food is good too!!

We were already warned not to order any food due to poor ratings. We ordered drinks that matched perfectly with the incredible sunset. A must see while in Jaco or Hurredura.

We stayed at the nearby Zephyr Palace so ended up having a number of meals here. Food and drinks were very good, the view can’t be beat! Very relaxing place to enjoy food, drinks and food company.
