On a long weekend with my husband we would up eating here twice! Air conditioning, friendly staff and great food! Prices were reasonable for a restaurant on the Main Street in Jaco with vegan and gluten free options (not for me but a friend we were with is vegan)! Definitely would recommend for couples or friends!

Breakfast is typical of CR... More

Went for dinner. They had a deal...two for $35. That included one appetizer, two entrees and dessert. The tuna steak and filet were exceptional!! And bananas foster to top it off...mmm. Staff was very courteous. And to top it off...air conditioning!! Only downfall was a lot of Americans eat here. Actually that was all that was in here.

My husband and I ate here several times during our 3 week stay in Jaco. We ate once in the upstairs room which is now a sports bar and 3 times in the patio. We enjoyed the chicken wings and kept returning. I will check out this hotel as an option if I ever return to Jaco.

We had the best dinner of our entire vacation, (the competition was pretty tough!) when we visited Poseidon. The service was great and the staff was knowledgeable of the menu and spoke great English. Dishes we ordered were the Poseidon bowl with tuna, a cheeseburger, cocktail shrimp, seafood soup with coconut milk, and the curry chicken. Everyone of us enjoyed... More

We stayed here in Jaco at hotel Poseidon and had breakfast every morning. The breakfast was very authentic and tasty as well as filling. The quality of food was easily above par. I highly recommend the 5 spice mahi mahi. It was absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. Also the sky bar is a sight... More
