“We loved Adventure Dining!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Our family enjoyed the experience we had at Adventure Dining. They picked us up just like the reviews said and we enjoyed the company of the other guests on the ride up. Pura Vida Gardens and the dining area are beautiful. The views are exquisite even though the waterfall was not rushing as much due to the fact that it is not the rainy season right now.The food was great and Jack even accomodated the fact that we only ate seafood.

I don't understand the negative review from the person below as Jack is right in that you are paying for the overall package. This was not meant to be an all you can eat/drink buffet. Go to Myrtle Beach, SC if that is what you want! I did not think he was trying to sell anything and I could tell he was passionate about what he was trying to provide and he seemed to have a great time with us as well. His staff was very nice and pleasant, too. We were fine with helping our self at the bar b/c then you don't have to wait.

We are grateful for the CD of pictures to keep as a momento of our time in Costa Rica and will fondly remember our evening at Adventure Dining. Keep up the good work, Jack, and Go Vols!

I always appreciate and value the many positive reviews I receive on Trip Advisor. Most of all, these reviews charge this old man's batteries, and make me realize how fortunate I am to meet so many great people. Kids too. My thanks to all who took the time to share your positive experience at Adventure Dining. I hope to see you all again one day soon. Jack

“Grand Time at Adventure Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

What a fabulous evening we had. It started when the nice, comfortable Mercedes van picked us up in front of our beach house a Playa Hermosa. Traveling 2000 vertical feet above the coast we disembarked at the beautiful gardens. After touring the surrounding garden area we headed down the gorgeous path to the Adventure Dining cabana. Looking south to the waterfall and greenery or east towards the coast below, every sight was breathtaking. We started with drinks and pu pu's, and Jack described our meal to come. Great music played to our dining on a scrumptious meal with excellent service. The only thing I might fault would be the dessert. It would fall below the "made from scratch" excellence I would expect. A unique experience we would seek again upon our return to Costa Rica.
