Love Jungle Love and as a "New Yorker" ;-) it really made our stay in Playa Chiquita fantastic. Food was delicious and I learned a new cocktail. It was Superfly!

This is our second visit to Jungle Love in two years and it was just as good as last year. I had fish and my companion chicken. Both were delicious. With only about 5 or 6 tables, the place is quiet and the host attentive. It's a high point for our time in the area.

Literally one of the best meals we have ever had! Amazing food, great atmosphere and awesome hosts, so good we booked another reservation for two days later before we look left the restaurant. Tuna steak was by far the most popular but we also had (and loved) the pesto pasta and sea bass along with the cinnamon brownie with coffee... More

What a wonderful experience we had tonight! Everything was so good and fresh! My family all opted for pizzas, and I had the red snapper with ginger sauce. Everything was so good we had to try the homemade desserts as well, so we ordered the cinnamon chocolate brownie and the flan with strawberries, which were both fantastic. There are not... More

The restaurant is a little ways out of town so a taxi is required but well worth the extra effort to get there. We highly recommend the sea... More

A very pleasant dining experience just out of Puerto town. Friendly and competent owner/staff with a good chef on hand to recommend various specials. Limited seating so booking preferable. Outdoor feel to undercover dining

Love this place. Small, so they recommend reservations. But well worth it. You could sense the passion in our meal. One of the best in this area of Costa Rica!
