We have eaten at El Phoenician so many times and we have never been let down. The service is always wonderful, the food and wine are top notch and the banquet always provides more than enough food. In an area where there is little to no free parking it's great to know that they will validate your ticket for the... More

Ordering was simple however the food (banquet) arrived almost immediately thereafter - hmmmm obviously not cooked to order. My dish, unlike my colleagues, was a la carte and when it hadn't arrived after some time we summoned a Waitress who pointed out... More
