The food at Rip Jack is top notch, the service is wonderful, and the atmosphere is great. The little hammock is also great for the kids to lounge on while waiting for the tasty food.

We ate breakfast and dinner 6 times each this past week at the Ripjack, and there wasn't a meal we didn't love. The care and preparation put into each dish was astounding. Eric and Raul were great on the waitstaff!

Stayed at the RipJack for a week and had all meals here except for a couple of lunches and one dinner. I found the food to be consistently good, with a decent price and best of all, all the wait staff were super friendly and helpful. My only criticism is that the menu needs to change, it is the same menu everyday. But in a week I found a couple of favorites and enjoyed all the choices.

My spouse and I had dinner here on night during our 2 day stay in Playa Grande. It had a very fun, relaxed atmosphere and the staff was great. We felt it was overpriced (would highly recommend eating next door instead) but the food was decent.
