We had only one meal here unfortunately, as we arrived too late to get in one night and another day was their day off. We were very disappointed to miss out. We highly recommend this restaurant for its friendly staff and excellent food.

I usually don't find the time to write reviews but I wanted to do this cause we had a great night of good food and excellent customer service (we weren't able to get a taxi so the Chef dropped us off himself!!). We had just arrived in Puerto Viejo earlier that day and didn't know what to expect. Like I... More

We go lucky to have reservations for Christmas Dinner at Jungle Love Cafe!! My wife and I along with 4 other people were greeted with open arms and the place is so quaint, clean, and warm. Being from Texas it was good to see that one of the cooks was wearing a Texas Rangers hat and did an outstanding job... More

Small, family owned and home-made. I had the fish of the day with an amazing lemon sauce. My daughter had the papaya, avacado and shrimp salad. Yummy! Good portions and a fresh and colorful salad. Very special service. Our waitress, Estefania, described the desserts perfectly and we ended up ordering 2 each. Try the Lime Love. The owner makes this... More

Excellent service from Stephanie and exceptional cocktails. The deluxe vegetarian pizza with pineapple was divine, perfect amount of topping with a crunchy crust. Dill and Garlic dressing on the fish of the day - Mahi Mahi - was fresh and flavoursome. If you are in Puerto Viejo, don't miss this little gem. Its really close to Punta Uva beach, which... More

Jungle Love is a real find, we had the most delicious cocktails followed by a supper of perfectly cooked fusion food with great attention to detail. The chef/owners are extremely hospitable and fun and the atmosphere is very welcoming.

We celebrated Christmas with our extended family in Playa Chiquita. I didn't expect the food to be a highlight of our holiday (I was ready for beans and rice, rice and beans). Jungle Love served a delicious dinner and provided excellent service. Gourmet in the jungle...what a great surprise!
