The location of this restaurant alone makes the beautiful drive up the mountain worth the experience. Adventure Dining sits on the edge of a mountain side with views to the waterfall, jungle canopy and coastline off in the distance. Throw in the sunset and double rainbow we were treated to and there really are few dining experiences like this anywhere. I would have been content even if the meal had been so-so. But, as part of a dinner planned for a wedding group of around 50, we were treated to filet and mahi-mahi (gringo for dorado) that were cooked perfectly. Anyone travelling in the Jaco/Puntarenas area of Costa Rica should make this is "must do." I can't wait to go back and spend some time in the gardens, and of course follow that up with dinner at Adventure Dining.

The owner, Jack, is humerous and made the experience even more enjoyable. Fortunately, he did not serve fried Gecko as threatened!

If you go to Costa Rica, you have to eat at this place. This is the best dinner and dessert I have ever had. This place sits at a high elevation surrounded by a massive garden and a nearby waterfall. There is also music to dance. We visited many restaurants in Jaco and this restaurant surpasses the other restaurants in service and experience without a doubt in my mind. You will not find many other restaurants that can offer the memories this restaurant will offer. This restaurant also requires reservations.

This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience (unless you do Adventure Dining more than once). It blew away our highest of expectations. Jack thinks of everything and took such great care of us. The drinks, food, and most importantly, the setting, were just beyond amazing. We went with an extended family of 6 and no one in the group had ever imagined having mahi mahi, filet and shrimp on a mountain top overlooking the Pacific ocean at sunset. You can't beat the experience! One in the group literally cried at sunset. It's beyond words and most definitely the highlight of our first vacation to Costa Rica. What a special place!

What an amazing night! My husband and I found Adventure Dining on Trip Advisor and we were intrigued by the reviews. We certainly weren't disappointed! The Pura Vida gardens surrounding the mountain top restaurant were beautiful. There was a waterfall view from our dinner table. The owner, Jack, knew we were on honeymoon and really made us feel special. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone coming to the Los Suenos/Jaco area. Pura Vida!

There was a group of 8 of us who were picked up from our resort in a nice, comfortable van. We had a safe drive up the hill to the garden and were greeted by Jack with beautiful flowers for the women. After a nice stroll around the beautiful grounds we headed down the path to Adventure Dining where an open bar and beautiful outdoor dining area was set up. We had a wonderful dinner, Jack took pictures of allof us and provided a video and then a copy of the CD with pics to each of the couples. We enjoyed the view, music, company and would recommend Adventure Dining to all!!!
