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!

The place is very small and cave like which makes for a nice romantic dinner.We entered the establishment expecting a little bit of an after theatre crowd but it was completely empty at 9pm. Granted.. We went on a Sunday.The hostess/waitress was lackluster and did not even try to feign enthusiasm for her trade. There was no music and we... More

Weird lighting adding to the effect of being 20,000 leagues under the sea...the cheapest Malbec on the pricey owner list was in the top 100 wines I have had amongst thousands, wow has Argentina come a long way in the price/value wars...could easily have just stayed in the apps, and done them all...but the entrees rocked as well...a superb choice,...
