A small but great place. Excellent meat and a very good wine list. The cheese entree is a must. Caring and very nice employees.

Was here for the first (and definitely not for the last) time. It is really cozy, when you enter you feel like home. Friendly staff, great food, gorgeous dessert and really valuable prices.

Rich in flavour and texture. This restaurant is full with flavour in food and in hospitality. We had a lunch here and many, mainly local people visited - good sign that Portuguese people also find this restaurant good!

This was my second time at Jaco. I had the pleasure to visit it a couple of years ago and decided to return last week. Restaurant is fairly small (reservation is advised) but nicely decorated. There were 3 specific meals for the day (on top of the standard ones). We went both with the seafood soup. Soup was extremely well... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere - nevertheless, it's worth a visit. People and food are authentic and dishes we well built. They had a great homemade spicy sauce. Will it be memorable? Perhaps not. But you won't regret it.

It is always good to go back to Jaco. Food is surprisingly excellent, with taste from Africa to old Europe. Service is casual but effective, and the cosy atmosphere invites you to stay, and stay, and stay. We ate ossobucco, together with some rice (although normal and un-tasty). Wine was recommended by the owner, and desserts were superb. Excellent place!

Thank Eng_Pepi
