Go for appy hour at Gaia to watch the sunset. Others will suggest a place for your main course.

We ate at Kapi Kapi and liked it, but it was very expensive, a little more than I thought it should be.

Is Jaco too far? Graffiti is a special restaurant with great service. I’m sure they would help out with your celebration.

Hi Josh K.....Jaco is about 1 1/4 hour drive each way......a little too far for a special dinner......Gaia would be a nice choice......as would the new restaurant Arbol at Hotel Makanda.
