This is a charming location but it took us hours to get breakfast. We followed a couple into the empty restaurant and a family came in after us. The family ate and left before we got served and the couple got served after us. Food was good but the service was abysmal.

I are breakfast here every day -- not just because it was in my hotel, but because the food and service were very good. Staff friendly. Excellent poached eggs and I loved the Expresso. Ate dinner there twice and I enjoyed both meals -- spinach salad and seafood soup and next meal a huge serving of baked tuna with rice.... More

Wonderful, intimate restaurant! Loved the file and the Japanese shrimp. Save room for dessert! The banana bread pudding is over the top!

We stayed at the acacia hotel and we met another couple in the jacuzzi who said they had eaten here and had a fabulous dinner. We went down for a late dinner and were surprised by the small size. We were greeted by Donna, who was warm and inviting. She casually recommended some menu options and actually sat down with... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel and naturally ventured in to check out the resturaunt downstairs. We were greeted by Donna who's been tending bar and waitressing for over 4 years. She made us feel welcome and comfortable immediately. It didn't hurt that she could whip up the most delicious and potent Pina Colada we had on the... More

5 star all the way. Excellent service, amazing food and the design of the place was obviously well thought through. We didn't want to leave. Save room for the creme brulee, it was amazing. The spinach salad was a great starter as well. Everything we had was yummy. We went back twice in a week.

The atmosphere here made for a great dining experience. We came on NYE with a fixed menu and everything was expertly prepared. The scallops were perfect, which is usually a good barometer for a chef's skill. But the highlight of the evening was our host Donna. She made us feel like she was treating us to dinner at her house... More

I thought the quality of the food excellent and the waiter quite attentive without being intrusive. Not too unreasonably priced (except the drinks are a bit pricey) and a very nice atmosphere--I definitely recommend!

Mensaje dirigido al manager y/o persona encargada de contrataciones.

Soy Músico Contratista Independiente. Soy el que toca Jazz y Blues y Música de excelencia Instrumental con mi Sax Tenor.

Lo hago sólo o junto a una joven muy versátil, que canta de varios géneros, inglés y/o español en los Rest. / Café / Lounge / Wine Cellar y otras actividades.

Quiero tener otros talleres de trabajo, visitar nuevos lugares, ampliando mis horizontes.

Me interesa tener una fecha en un futuro cercano. Para alguna actividad momento especial o celebración, atraer, mantener o simplemente agradar su clientela no lo dejes para despues, aproveche teniendo ventaja competitiva.

Le pregunto $190.00 es una cantidad cómoda para usted? De no serlo vamos a llegar a un acuerdo razonable. Usted gana música en vivo selecta de buen de gusto y yo gano teniedo taller y la exposición. Lo importante es que la parte económica no sea impedimento. La Prioridad que usted ofrezca el taller.

Me gustaría que consideres y provea taller de entreteniendo musical ya que es un complemento de valor añadido, para que sus clientes reciban mas por lo que pagan y es un activo para su gestión empresarial.

Con todos mis respeto, lo felicito si ya está haciendo la diferencia y le sugiero que continúe, apoyando el talento nativo y abriendo puertas que otro empresarios nos cierran en nuestra propia isla.

Gracia por su atención y su colaboración fortaleciendo la economía del patio eligiendo talento nativo.

Samuel - 787 209-5172

«El jazz es mucho más que una música: es un modo de vida, es un instrumento de diálogo e incluso de cambio social. La historia del jazz es la crónica del poder de la música para aglutinar a culturas y universos diferentes como resorte de integración y respeto mutuo.» Irina Bokova, Directora General de la UNESCO
