“Nachos and Margaritas”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We landed here after walking from our hotel and were hot! Weirder era pitcher of Margaritas and nachos. Both were good. Prices were a bit high, but comparable to other places. Great view of the Pacific. Friendly service.

“Beautiful View and good food”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We enjoyed touring the airplane and taking pictures of the beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean before enjoying a wonderful meal. The service was great and the food came out quickly. We would definitely visit there again.

“Original Set up”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We had dinner at the restaurant on a Saturday night. It was quite busy, the service was not able to cope with the quantity of people. The food was good but the waiter really did not look happy to work there. The plane is quite interesting, I love planes, and it brings an original twist to a restaurant. Prices are very reasonable for the location, service is included in the bill.

It was a thunderstrorm evening so we could see litenings during the dinner, it was special over the ocean view with shadow islands in the background.

Could have been nice if there would be a sunset but it was very cloudy.

“Plane in the Jungle and the Views!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This was a fun place that we visited for afternoon drinks and snacks. It was located within sight of our resort Falls Resort and they suggested we visit and get the story of the Plane. The restaurant entrance was an old C-130 type aircraft which lead onto a balcony with stunning views of the ocean and jungle. During our stay a troupe of monkeys moved by the trees nearby and everyone got great pics. We met some people and shared stories with them. The drinks were fun and we enjoyed the Nachos and the staff was attentive and put up with our constant requests for photos.

This is a really fun place to explore for drinks and make sure you get the story behind the plane.
