Green Room restaurant in Jaco center.
Restaurants: Local and International Cuisine
10 years ago in Jaco there was not much to choose from, but now there is a wide variety of high quality restaurants in town. We will add a Jaco Restaurant Guide in the near future, but for now here is a short list of some favourites.
Costa Rica Sodas
Local food restaurants in Costa Rica are called Soda. It has nothing to do with fizzy drinks, and not sure where the expression comes from. Some sodas are cafeteria style (Soda Rustiko - most popular near center of town) where you pick what you want and they add up a price, and some are with a menu brought to your table (Soda Marea Alta - closer to South end).
Most typical dish is called a Casado, which consists of salad, rice and beans, vegetables and a choice of meat. This tends to be the best value for what is usually a good meal.
Sushi (fresh tuna available in Jaco makes this a favorite). Multiple Italian restaurants, Thai, French, American standards, Mexican, Colombian, Peruvian, Seafood, Steak, Pizza, Breakfast lunch and Dinner. Pretty much everything is available with some very good choices. The prices are moderate (not cheap) and comparative to US restaurant prices.
Right in the center of Jaco is the Green Room
which is a large open air restaurant that has been around for many years. They have live music every night and a great selection of local micro-brewery draft beer. Jaco Walk at the North end of town is an open air "mall" with a hand full of restaurants (some with A/C and some outdoor), like Grafitti, Hamburguesia, Tsunami Sushi and more.
