The atmosphere was fun, the food was yummy- we had chicken cheese fajita and there was a lot of cheese. The pizza was good too!

The menu is extensive with, what seems to be, something for everyone. My friend and I had dinner there this week. I had a small everything type pizza and my friend had a burrito. Both were excellent. The service was great and our waitress was terrific. I would highly recommend a stop by to give it a try.

Wishbone had good food and a fun atmosphere. Diners are able to sit on a patio overlooking the main street of Jaco.

Well they did everything right this day. Nice welcome, fast service, great wine, excellent food - we had the feeling that these people wanted us to have a good time. And certainly we had. We went there for lunch.

Just had the jumbo shrimp at the Wishbone, all I can say is awesome! Five shrimp, deveined, with shell on looked like five lobster tails! Everyone else in the place were ogling my plate like I had hit the mother load. Jumbo shrimp are hard to find fresh down here, kudos to the wishbone!

My favorite place to eat in Jaco! The pizza with black beans, and avocado was one of the best pizzas i have ever eaten in my life. I got it 3 times while I was in Jaco and would go back just for the pizza

We visited Wishbone for the first time three years ago so we were excited to return for the Spicy Tuna and Arroz Con Pollo o Camarones along with margaritas and the black beans that are just worth the visit to begin with. The service was great and even remembered that we had the same server. This was a special trip... More

Classic costa rican dish was enough for me (I'm a big eater) Since it was so cheap (under 3000 colones) I figured I should order a plate of something else . Mistake,couldn't eat what I ordered.
