We had one dinner and one breakfast at the hotel restaurant, both were very good, nicely presented and reasonably priced. There selection is limited and for someone that doesn't eat meat there are only couple of items that can be ordered. The only issue we had was that it took 50 minutes to receive our dinner from the time we... More

Even when the menu doesn't have too many options, the ones they offer won't disappoint. Expect to spend $25 or so on a meal per person (adult). They have a children menu with a couple of options and lower prices.

Stopped by for dinner to go. Ordered tuna salad and prawn red curry. Both very tasty with fresh ingredients. Even made an effort to make the take-out food look really well presented. Very friendly service. Great value. Recommended.

Chef Pablo made us an absolutely delicious dinner starting with homemade bread and a delicious dipping sauce followed by a starter salad that was waaaay more than just lettuce! A most delicious dressing on the salad. The curry shrimp or chicken with vegetables and crispy rice is a must for dinner. Loved the food and the setting!!

Upscale restaurant in remote area. Great menu of local and imported ingredients and cuisine. New owners have made this something special. Chef has European training and the sauces and favors exceptional. Not to be missed

There is no reason to eat anywhere else. . . fresh food, perfectly seasoned and prepared. The chef comes out and talks to you about the specials, and is interested in what you might be interested in trying. The mixed ceviche is heaven in a dish. But absolutely everything Pablo prepared was delicious. We had some special requests and he... More
