Excellent food, great service and friendly owners. What more could anyone ask for? Tip: Get there early because the place is small and it fills up quickly! The Jungle Love Milkshake (Baileys, Guaro, Ice Cream & Milk) rocks! My kids had the pizza (perfect for them), I had the Shrimp, Papaya & Avocado Salad--very, very good! Fabulous atmosphere too!

The place was recommended by Hotel Banana Azul, & we could see why. The food was fabulous & we really enjoyed the dessert which was the best Lime Tart we've ever had. The owner & his wife make our night very special. They were very kind & gracious. It is a romantic setting locaed on the outskirts of town. We... More

Green goddess tahini dressing, AWESOME. Main: Vegan chickpea curry. I can't even explain this dish in words because I have no idea what was in it that made it... More

We read wonderful reviews about Jungle Love so we decided to try it ourselves. Everything we had read was spot on. The food was amazing and the best tuna steak I have ever had. The steak was huge and the flavor was fresh. We have a nine year old and the owner let him customize a dish to his likings... More

One of us have dietary restrictions and they did their best to accommodate them. Everything was super fresh, the veggies cooked to perfection. We wish we could have had the sauce in... More
