Stunning views, royal treatment, great food, well - stocked bar, and entertainment galore by wonderful hosts ... truly a magical evening that captures the essence of Costa Rica's "pura vida"! This is one memory that will have you smiling long after the trip is over ... won't say any more, because you have to experience it to believe it!!

An Extraordinary experience! Almost surreal in its amazing visuals! Although excellent meal ....I think it is surpassed by the overwhelming beauty that you encounter. Wonderfully friendly reception by owners and staff that leave you feeling more than welcome to share this extraordinary space in what could easily be described as "paradise"! Not to be missed!

What an amazing evening!! Perfect from start to finish! When we arrived we were met by one of the owners who was very welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. We took a stroll around the beautiful garden then walked along the lovely path to our dining setting that was out of this world. We were met by Cindy... More

This restaurant is a unique experience and something to remember for a long time. The location is amazing - high on the mountains, overlooking mountains covered with rainforest, a waterfall, and the Pacific coastline far away. The sunset was spectacular. The hosts were very gracious and made everyone feel very much at home. They even had arranged for fireworks to... More

I would recommend Adventure Dining to anyone traveling in Costa Rica. The views are stunning and the staff is extremely friendly. The meals are not the best, but the atmosphere is great at the restaurant. Cindy and David are super nice, and treat you like family. If you're ever in CR, I would definitely recommend this location.

I would highly recommend this gorgeous venue to anyone traveling to Costa Rica - even if you have to go out of your way to get there - It's worth the effort. The gardens are exquisite and they are perched high on a mountain with incredible views of the surrounding area and a magnificent waterfall. The restaurant itself feels like... More

Close to Jaco, the driver picks you up and brings you straight up the mountain on a treacherous dirt road to this magnificent property. The vertical landscaping is lush and beautiful complete with waterfalls. Cindy and David are the consummate Texan hosts and damn proud of their hilltop treasure. The food was good; standard wedding American fare,not gourmet and nothing... More
