We have just moved permanently to Costa Rica after 3 years of back and forth to the US. No matter how fleeting our trips had been, we never missed an opportunity to visit the Bamboo Room. There is NOTHING missing here: ambience, amazing music, musicians...that are extraordinarily talented, excellent food, and a view to die for. (saw Tucans and aguates this visit plus sunset over the Pacific...not to be missed).
John and Janet welcome people like they are family. This is a well kept secret so there is a certain reluctance on my part to review it favorably. That said, it is a venue you want to include during your travels. A very special place: an unforgettable experience!!
Find time to visit keeping in mind reservations are very limited in this time of covid-so book ahead-you will be glad you did. Our guests (we run an inn) viewed it the "highlight" of their trip. Don't take my word..read the 500 or so extremely positive reviews
Greetings John and Janet from your people in Ontario 🇨🇦
Hands down The Bamboo Room is our favourite place for great food and good tunes to sit a spell.
John does the best Jackson Brown and my husband can attest!
We had to quickly leave...our Ojochal winter nest on the heals often COVID-19 and will be back. Nothing gets a Canadian down so we'll see you again next year!
Stay safe .. stay well .. Pura Vida alwaysMore
This place has it all...unsurpassed sunset views, delicious cuisine, comfortable seating area, friendly staff, and wonderful live music, all connected to a delightful boutique hotel. The owners, John and Janet, are super-friendly and will most likely stop by your table for a visit. Come early...for sunset and have a delicious drink, then stay for dinner and entertainment – you can even spend the night at Alma de Ojochal which has great atmosphere and a beautiful pool as well. The Caribbean sea bass and sides were especially tasty – the portions were generous and the prices were most reasonable. By far the evening we spent at the Bamboo Room was one of the highlights of our 19-day trip to Costa Rica, and it will surely be one of yours too. Enjoy!More
This was our 4th trip to CR and 3rd to Ojochal area. It would not be a trip without a return to the "Bamboo". Greeted by John and Janet as if we never left. Even the staff remembered us Roger, Alan and Jose. Although that...speaks to maybe too many good times. Food and service are consistently very good.
Also a good place for live entertainment and never sure who might drop in and sing or play. A must destination if you are anywhere in the Ojochal area. Reservations recommended but pls don't take our seats at the bar!!More
We have been to The Bamboo Room many times, and plan to keep going! Great menu, many options to make everyone happy. Beautiful setting, spectacular sunsets, open air which gives you a nice cool breeze. The staff are so attentive and friendly, and the owners...John and Janet make sure everyone is taken care of. So the food, drinks, staff, restaurant setting, sunsets, and owners are exceptional.....cherry on top ...the LIVE entertainment!! You will not be disappointed, make sure you go to The Bamboo Room.More
My husband and I love the Bamboo room. The food is so good. If you have not had the bamboo shrimp, you are missing out. Also the fish and chips are excellent. Everything on the menu is top notch. We first went this year on...our own, then took friends who also loved it. The sunsets are spectacular. Then there is the music which is 99.9% fabulous. Only once we were a bit disappointed. What can I say about the owners John and Janet. Super friendly and John is a very talented singer, musician. Would highly recommended this place.More
We celebrated a birthday here with 20 of our friends and it was a truly magical experience. The setting is an amazing jungle paradise overlooking the pacific ocean. (TIP- arrive before 5pm the view the epic sunset) the staff is kind and attentive and provide...100% five star service. The cherry on top was and always is the live entertainment. On this night we had a special guest - a lovely Cuban man who looked as if he stepped off a cake- just adorable and what a voice. The owners John and Janet are the best hosts and ensure everyone who walks through their door has a smile on their face. They are amazing people and make this magical piece of paradise all that it is. Thank you John and Janet!!. ps if you plan to go here for dinner, they get busy. be sure to make a reservation via table agent.More
