The hosts were wonderful; couldn't be nicer. The food was ok but the comradery made the evening a grand success. The scenery was magnificent. The, sunset was one of the best. All fifteen of us had a great time.

Cindy and David we excellent hosts of our group at the top of the mountain for dinner. We had a lovely walk around the gardens with views of the waterfalls and then wonderful appetizers over looking the mountains and the ocean. We didn't have too much of a sunset because of the clouds (it was rainy season), but it didn't... More

The walking paths through the gardens is a spectacular. There are a wide variety of tropical plants and flowers. There are red macaws and toucans flying through the trees. The waterfalls is a beautiful sight. Also, the view of the pacific ocean is excellent. The hosts are very friendly. The service was very good. The food was only average, but... More

Our family vacation in Costa Rica was celebrated to a spectacular ending at Adventure Dining where we enjoyed not only a fabulous meal but gracious hosts, and the most breath taking views Costa Rica has to offer, lavish gardens, waterfalls, set in a rainforest and complete ocean views - like out of the movies, but even better!

My Girlfriend and I, with her brother and his wife, were in Jaco for two weeks vacation and as one of our special tours we went to adventure Dining for Valentine's Day. There was a little misunderstanding with the timing and reason for the start time. But once we arrived Cindy and Dave were more than gracious and allowed us... More

We have enjoyed Adventure Dining on many occasions in the past - it never fails to impress us because it is an absolutely magical place. The food... More

The botanic gardens and views over the jungle and towards the beach are a must too see. Food was good and the hosts very nice. It is totally worth the money ($105 per person). This gem is a once in a lifetime experience. They also have an open bar so you just help yourself. Highly recommended.

After trekking to the waterfall (very hard work) we stumbled across this trip. We were collected from the hotel in an air conditioned mini bus and taken to the gardens late afternoon to wander around, admire the stunning vistas, and watch the sun slowly setting. We were then taken by our lovely hosts for dinner, all cooked and served on... More

This dining adventure was an awesome experience. The garden walk and beautiful views are well worth the travel time. David and Cindy, the host and hostess, are wonderful people and a delight to visit with. Thank you for making our special family vacation even more special!
