“Beautiful setting, amazing host...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“Amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Didn't really know what " Adventure Dining"was
all about but decided to give it a try on our recent visit to Costa Rica
My wife and were part of a group of ten that Jack the owner and host put together. He will only open his restaurant if he has more than 8 guests for the evening. We were picked up at our hotel and transported to a lush mountain top tropical rainforest. The " dining room" was a beautiful patio with panaramic views of waterfalls, jungle and the Pacific ocean.
There was a well stocked open bar and snacks to enjoy while we got to know the othwr guests.The food was excellent and the service was friendly and efficient. Jack our "host" was extremely friendly and took many photos which was he made into a CD which each guest received and the end of the evening. I would highly recommend tb is experience to anyone visiting central Pacific Costa Rica
