“Best Dining Experience in Costa Rica!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This was absolutely amazing! The whole experience was extraordinary. The gardens are like paradise...the most beautiful we saw in Costa Rica. The host treated us like we were old friends who were guests in his home. I can't wait to go back!

“Well Worth The Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Our group of six went to Adventure Dining last night. We were very lucky. With everyone wanting to come for Valentine's Day, we were able to call in the morning (this was the day before Valentine's Day) and get a reservation (normally you have to make them at least 24 hours in advance). Not only that but we had a very small total group, only 6 others besides us for a total of 12. As everyone else has said, Jack is a magnificent host. The views are truly breathtaking. You feel like you are on top of the world. Jack sits each group at their own table, but he watches the group dynamic and is flexible. There was a father and son in our group that we got to talking to and they were great people so Jack moved our group and them to another table that we could all sit at. We had a tremendous time, eating, drinking and laughing. I have to admit that based upon the reviews and some we had talked to here, my expectations on the food were tempered, but the food was actually very good. It exceeded my expectations. Is it a $100 a plate dinner? No, but you are getting a lot more than dinner, you get all the booze you can drink and you get a dining setting like no other. We even had a ton of fun on the van ride back to our condo. We all had a roadie and we laughed and joked with our new friends all the way down the mountain and then the driver even let us stop to grab a 12 pack of beer. This is something you can't do in other places because they don't have the setting, so don't miss it if you are here.

“Beautiful setting, amazing host...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is a great experience and Jack is an exceptional host. He obviously loves what he does and it shows. He made us feel at home and made the experience special. The food is simple, but good, the bar open and plentiful and the views priceless. I was with a friend and would squat that although there were many couples Jack kept it romantic for them but was able to keep a fun cocktail party feel overall which was fun for us. Thanks Jack!!!

“Adventure Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Adventure Dining was an amazing experience. It was our last night in Costa Rica and we enjoyed a wonderful evening of great views, great food and great company. Jack did a great job making us feel right at home and helping us achieve his goal of making it our favorite night in Costa Rica.

“A MUST DO!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

A great time and must do while in Jaco! Jack does a great job of creating a fun time and great memories. Oh-the views and food are good. I mean-AMAZING!! Great for a couple, medium or large group. I've done this more than once and have never been disappointed. Jack's passion for accommodating his guests and making sure they have fun make Adventure Dining fun for everyone.
