Good food, nice atmosphere

Palio is an Italian restaurant that is on the fancier side, and is located within the main hotel building of the Wyndham Resort. It is, in essence, a hotel restaurant. It is convenient, expensive, and while it serves very good food, one can't say that it was great. Service was friendly and... read more

There was not plenty of choice and the prices were high. The fried calamari were not good and the sangria was bad

We sat in the area that's designated as Bolero's, and had Coral del Mar as a server. She was excellent in timeliness and customer service. She was very understanding and accommodating with us, as we were traveling my little dog Mia. Would definitely go back to have a drink or some tapas. Thanks Coral!!!

Excellent food, service, and ambience. Highly recommended. Good wine list. Four of us dined at Palio and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Not inexpensive but the quality matched the price.

I ate here 3 years ago and had one of the best bites of pasta I've ever had. March 2015 was a different experience. Dinner was delivered to the table as a glutenous brick of overcooked pasta. Very sad. Maybe they had an off-night, but I was very disappointed. Make your reservation in advance. They fill up quickly, and the... More

Dinner special was overcooked. Pasta with chicken had little taste. Steak was palatable but not cooked appropriately.

Soft music, unparalleled service and delicious food. My husband and I dined with our grandson and his fiancé. Everyone loved the complex favors in our dishes. Waiter was most helpful. We were deciding between two wines, and after his advice chose a Spanish red which was similar to a Pnot Noir. Great choice as this $9 glass of red was... More

The food was very good, but the price was not cheap. The room was laid out strangely, so the waiter could not see you unless he walked by. The portions of pasta were large. Reservations are a must if you want to eat before 9:00! The dress code said long pants for men, so we dressed up, but they were... More

Jorge Catala, the chef. Excellent. We have dined here twice during our 9 day stay at Rio Mar. Tried all the restaurants and liked this best. The Carpaccio is terrific, and the chicken piccata superb. Service is excellent and atmosphere is lovely. Service was attentive and waiters explained ingredients and brought out balsamic vinegar so I could take a picture.... More
