For breakfast, the French toast and the breakfast burrito were very good. For dinner the have a salad/condiment bar. The bar includes salad items, pico, veggies, etc. It is included with all...

The Tacobar is just of the main drag in Jaco and is known for their delicious tacos. However, we also discovered that they have awesome breakfasts and some of best fruit smoothies. Try their $3 breakfast special. We had french toast or pancakes, with fresh fruit, 3 Bucks! Great food!

This place is amazing for families. The kids loved the swing chairs and they have kids meals that include a smoothie. The food was tasty and if you get a taco it includes the salad bar. Our family of 5 ate here for around $40, which was incredible considering most of our meals were $100+.

Had lunch today with the family. Fast, quick and quite affordable. Ordering is simple. Pick a protein, chicken, beef, fish,. Than pick a prep, ie fried, grilled, etc. And pay. Plates come with access to a full salad bar that gives you an almost endless variety. I swear by the Mango batido. Just check your receipt... I'm not sure if... More

Best smoothie in Jaco is a Blackberry Mango from Taco Bar. Extremely delicious. We had fish tacos, seafood tacos, and cheese tacos. All good. Seafood was the best because it had vegetables to add more flavor. The reason i don't feel this is 5 stars is the toppings for the tacos don't live up to the proteins. You top your... More

Fun place for dinner in Jacó. Good prices for an all you can eat buffet of sides to go with your dinner. Ended up getting caught here during a storm that ended in a power outage of the entire street but other than that it was a great night. Staff does not speak English well aside from the girl at...

I am co-owner in a travel company that specializes in student travel. We run an expedition to Costa Rica every February and eat at many local restaurants during that trip. One of my partners had visited the Tacobar with her family on a previous trip and fell in love with the food and the atmosphere. We decided it was a... More

They switch the menu items daily that are the special. It gives a bit of a discount off the cost. Food was decent, portions decent. Best thing is that it isn't the fluffy white bread for your toast. Nice garden setting but pretty much cut off from the breeze so pick an outside table.
