The restaurant itself has 2 floors (the second floor can be used for private parties or can b converted to a sports bar or accommodation), and a top part, on a leased property.

The restaurant is going to remain open as usual during the contest. It will be ready to operate when the property is transferred to the Essay Contest Winner.

Penelope and Jack Williams have operated the Outback Jack’s Beach Bar N Grill for 7 years. They moved to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca three years ago. During that time, the place has won a serious reputation for good food, service, and funky ambiance. Penelope and Jack are not just restaurant owners; they have become friends to many of their regular customers. Outback Jack’s Beach Bar N Grill gets local and international relaxed customers.

The food served consists of barbecued steaks, ribs, tasty little chicken wings, Aussie burgers and fresh fries, sautéed vegetables, roasted potatoes, salads, homemade sauces and soups, fresh sea food, whole fried red snappers, crab cakes, local dishes… always with an effort made on the flavor and presentation. A variety of cocktails is also served: margarita, pina colada, daiquiri… The restaurant has a very positive cash flow.

Special events take place for Halloween, the 4th of July, Super bowl final, Mardi Gras, New Year’s Eve and any other excuse to have a party.

Penelope and Jack truly enjoyed running Outback Jack’s. But they now want to take time to write books about all the adventures they have been through all around the world (first one will be “Always On The Edge – While flying by the seat of our pants”).

It is time for someone to take over.
