I've been to Bambu Jam with some friends for dinner. The environment is nice and the place looks ok until you start ordering food. The cocktails were watered down and the price of one lomito steak was comparable to the price you can find in NYC. The food at the end was ok but the price is unacceptable, consodering you... More

We watched a Euro Cup soccer game there on their projection screen. It was a fun place to while away the afternoon. The food was fine, nothing out of this world, but the service was very good. Neat place.

We went there two nights in a row because of lack of food nearby, and also not wanting to drive into Quepos. On both nights, we were the only ones there. The first night they... More

We stopped in for lunch and had a great time. The food and service was great. We were also lucky enough to have several monkeys come by towards the end of the meal. Really cool experience.

The inside of Bambu Jam was great, everything made out of wood, almost looks like a huge tree house. Had dinner here one night. Not great, but it was nice to relax and watch TV on of there large screen TV's.

Bamboo Jam is back. It had been closed for awhile, but the Tuesday Friday dance nights are back! The bands that play there mix it up with Salsa, Cumbia, Bachata, and Merengue. It is one of the only places in Quepos and Manuel Antonio where there is good live music one can dance to. It is also a great place... More

Breakfast was included with the hotel. The food was good but less selection then at other hotels. Service was not so good until they heard you talking about it.

This restaurant is on the grounds of the Tabulia Tree Hotel. We had breakfast there 3 days in a row while staying there. Really mediocre. I wouldn't recommend that anyone make a stop here.
