This place is located within the very busy grand hotel. The restaraunt however is located away from the hustle and bustle of the pools with teams of children. We enjoyed lunch ordering the chicken breast and arechera steak. Quite good.

Besides the decor, the service and food is good. Even though something is not on the menu, they will prepare it for you. There is a new manager (UREE) overseeing the waiters. He is fantastic. If you want something special, just let him know. The restaurant is opened for lunch and dinner daily and specials are offered through out the... More

We got there an hour before sunset and got to watch it in this beautiful open-air restaurant dressed on the outside like a straw fishing hut. The music was soothing and romantic, and the food was phenominal!! At the... More

Have never been disappointed. It is both good for lunch and dinner. They also have buffets and both live and taped music. Always entertaining. Service is excellent.
