Cozy restaurant with a romantic atmosphere. Everything I have ever ordered there has been amazing. We always take our friends there because we know the food is consistently good.

I had very high expectations about this place from the trip advisor reviews and a friend recommendation, however my experience was not as good. I ordered the burrata salad, which was not available, I tried a lettuce framboise vinaigrette salad which was completely average. The steak with fois gras sauce was ok, meat well cooked but the sauce quite basic... More

The Restaurant is located on a small shopping plaza. The locale is ok but nothing out of the ordinary, service was average and a little on the slow side, portions are really small and I felt the food was very good but overpriced. I had lamb chops that were delicious but they were bite sized.

This restaurant used to be a reference for good food and excellent service.... The service is about the same as in the past but food quality is lower as well as the quantity. Don't believe the menu when it says you will have a 350 gr cut.... looks more like 200 gr.

On a whim decided to go to Carmenere to try something light before going to the concert. I have read great reviews and have really wanted to try this place.. I ordered shrimp tacos and non alcoholic lemonade. Did not have a long wait and was surprised that the tacos did not have corn tortillas and instead came with thin... More

Returned to this restaurant after a long absence and I'm not sure why we stayed away so long. One of my best meals in Acapulco. As soon as we were seated we were advised they were out of one of their salads and no flank steak that evening. I was a little disappointed as I wanted the flank steak but... More

I don't give out 5 stars often but this restaurant deserves them. It is located in a small strip mall off Costera Miguel Aleman. It has a quiet, intimate atmosphere. I had the rib eye steak, which was tender and well marbled with a delightful Italian sauce. I cannot recall better service in a restaurant. Really! The English was a... More
