We walked to the Villa from our resort. It was maybe a 10 minute walk from Royal Decameron. It is on the right side of the Hyatt right across from the Resort and to the left. You would miss it if you didn’t know it was there. It is a very pretty little restaurant in what appears to be a... More

Villa Valentina is an amazing gem we found adjacent to our hotel. Its al fresco courtyard dining with an abundance of interesting decor, lush plants and a cool breeze. The space is perfect for a casual dinner and the food and service were superb. Only served on Sunday's after 3pm, the Paella is the best ever. It was full of... More

We had only an overnight stay before leaving on a cruise the next day, and TA reviews were convincing for Villa Valentina. If anything, they underestimated the place. First, gracious...we arrived the day of an art exhibition opening, and they had no spaces that were not reserved (we had not time to make reservations). They found us a table for... More

As a gringo SJD resident, we experience many of the local resturants. Villa is located next to theHyatt Parkland close to Mega on the 4 lane. Parking is easy as you come from the "backside" of Mega. Located in a space shared by a winery, bakery, furniture store and art shop, we enjoy the resturant being in this nice courtyard... More

This restaurant is tucked away behind a hotel and can't really see it from the street however, it is a hidden treasure. The menu is small but very good. We had the catch of the day which was red snapper and was awesome. The service was outstanding even though the restaurant was very busy. The restaurant is in a beautiful... More

We attended a wedding at this beautiful location, including their upper patio overlooking the ocean. We liked it so much, we had to return for a chance to enjoy their regular menu. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant, which is definitely what we were looking for. Interesting items such as short rib tostadas and duck confit huarache immediately caught... More

This is a nice little gem kind of tucked behind a very large hotel. Beautifully decorated. Only complaint was the lack of Mexican food. They have more of a main street fare type of offering.. But honestly we only visited for lunch.

Just a short note - there are enough great reviews for this little gem. And the two or three that were disappointed? I really believe that when the owner instantly replies and kindly addresses the complaints, it speaks volumes. More than any review we can give. It is brilliant! Just go there! Cheers, R & M.
