This was an absolutely amazing experience. In fact, it was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Not only is Noam a delight, but he actually enjoys being a part of the experience. Not only did he entertain us the entire time, but his food was absolutely extraordinary. If you love fine dining but don't love the pomp that usually comes along with those stuffy restaurants, you will adore eating in the open air at HiR.

This is a true dining experience of a life time. You MUST do this. You won't be sorry. The food was amazing the host/chef was to die for. I will tell everyone I know to travel to CR just for this.

Noam is so welcoming and warm! His food is fantastic. We were in awe of him. He is going to blow up. This is such a well kept secret and it won't be for long. Our experience was truly magical and delicious.

What an exceptional meal in a unique setting. Noam is clearly gifted. Everyone in our group of four was beyond satisfied. I would be considered a foodie, and there were ingredients I’d never heard of before, like crispy fish scales and shredded avocado pit. Do yourself a favor and go.

Noam and Nadia put together one of the most unique dining experiences I've ever had, serving some of the best cuisine sourced with local ingredients in the comfort of their home. It was unforgettable. My girlfriend was previously not much of a traveler, but after dining at HiR, she now has the wanderlust and wants to find other experiences like this that let her connect with people on an intimate level and share experiences and laughter.

If you’re able to join Noam at his kitchen, you will not be disappointed. It’s a once in a life time experience. We were honored to spend Christmas as a family dining under the stars, savoring every mouthful of culinary surprise that presented with each course.

This was a fantastic experience. An intimate setting in the jungle about 25 minutes outside of Tamarindo. GPS will get you there just fine, I would recommend a 4x4 vehicle to get there as you'll be on a rocky road with some water crossings that can get deep if its been raining. Make sure you get there on time. The restaurant features one main chefs table with seating for up to 12, so depending on your group size and given reservations you might meet some fun guests. We met a local group celebrating a birthday who shared the meal with us. The seven course menu is diverse with a seafood focus. Noam and Nadia make a great team, and the fact that they prepare all of this on their own is truly remarkable. Noam presents every dish which tells a story and gives you insight into his life as well as the local ingredients. A self taught chef that has ambition, creativity, and a drive to share with others. Each dish is very different and full of flavor. This is a special experience that will likely be the highlight of your Costa Rica experience. This is expensive, but its not just dinner; its a 3-4 hour culinary adventure so if you are considering it, its worth it. Bring your own wine, and for a corking fee per bottle you can enjoy a lovely night with your group. I can't wait to see how he continues to evolve and how this restaurant will grow as more people being discover it.

If you are looking for an adventure out in the jungles with amazing food, wirh warm and genuine hosts then HiR is for you! It’s a bit of a trek out but worth the ride. The creativity of the dishes and the stories behind each made the evening memorable. We loved it.

Unlike any other dining experience I've had previously. Noam is an amazing chef, and the chef's table format was amazing. Set at his house just south of Tamarindo, we arrived after driving through a river bed (have a 4wd if in the rainy season for sure) and we were the only 4 guests that night. He and Nadia greeted us and set us at our table overlooking the forest, with the sounds of howler monkeys in the distance and a gorgeous view. The 7 courses were truly spectacular, he prepared them and then told us the history behind each one and the sourcing of the ingredients. The food was comparable to many Michelin starred restaurants we have been to in the past in France, Belgium and the US. If you are interested in a unique dining experience, this is it.

Nestled in the midst of the forest just on the outskirts of Tamarindo lies a jewel and surprise for foodies who love healthy, home grown and tasty cuisine. Norm and Nadia provide you with a culinary 7 course experience that will leave you wanting for more, but not hungry.

What an amazing time we had at HiR! All 7 dishes were absolutely delightful amid a backdrop of the jungle. Our 13 year old has been a pretty picky eater so it was a risk for us to include her in our fine dining experience. Chef Noam asked if we had and dietary restrictions when we booked - other than pork we had none and gave him free reign. And what a performance! It was tough to single out our favorite dish from any of the many prepared with the greatest of expertise. And the biggest fan of the evening - the 13 year old! We travel the world as a family and unanimously agreed that this dining experience was hands down the best one of our lives. With that in mind, do not let the price hold you back - this experience is loads better (and more memorable) than a broadway play - and you leave with a full belly to boot!

HiR Fine Dining provides a calm, welcoming atmosphere, a kindhearted & creative chef, many incredible & unique courses, and and unforgettable experience overall. Chef Noam is an intriguing man who will never fail to delight your palate with his dishes. Our time at HiR was worth every penny, and I cannot wait until my next opportunity to dine there arises.
